Italy, according to UNESCO data, owns 60% of the most important works of art in the world and about half are located in Florence. This city, from 1200 to 1500, was the birthplace of great geniuses.
The streets of Florence have been enriched, over the centuries, the real works of art like the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, but the real treasures are exhibited in the Florentine palaces and churches.
A prime example is the Uffizi, the most famous museum in the city, which houses works by Leonardo Da Vinci, Botticelli, Titian, Rubens and Michelangelo. The love for art in Florence does not stop in the past but continues to offer invaluable exhibitions.
If you decide to visit Florence in the month of March, you will have the opportunity to participate in three wonderful events.
The first exhibition is dedicated to Klimt, inaugurated on 26 November. The exhibition called the “Klimt Experience“, edited by Crossmedia Group, takes place at the church of Santo Stefano al Ponte.
The protagonists of this multimedia presentation are the life and art of the founder of the Vienna Secession. We all have seen, at least once, one of Klimt’s works such as “The Kiss” or “Judith”, yet Klimt remains a little-known artist.
Thanks to this exhibition, accompanied by a gripping soundtrack and explosive visual impact, you will learn about 700 works by the artist. The exhibition was prepared by combining what is real to what is virtual, and the result is truly amazing.
A 3-D reconstruction of Vienna in the early 1900s, the touch-screen multimedia desktops, virtual reality viewers and physical theatrical media, allow visitors to fully immerse themselves in the life of Klimt.
The exhibition closes its doors on April 2, 2017.
2. Kandinsky to Pollock
Great expectations for this event will guarantee unmeasured excitement.
On March 19th, at Palazzo Strozzi, the exhibition that will be inaugurated is entitled “From Kandinsky to Pollock. The great art of the Guggenheim.”
The exhibition will host more than 100 masterpieces of art, European and American, between the ’20s and’ 60s.
The aim of the exhibition, run by Luca Massimo Barbero, is to create a pathway that follows the artistic ties between Europe and America, as they were seen by Peggy and Solomon Guggenheim.
The exhibition compares the works of major modern art artists such as Man Rey, Alberto Burri, Pablo Picasso and Roy Lichtenstein and many others that make up the rich and captivating list.
3. Venturino Venturi
This exhibition, organized at Villa Bardini, thanks to its previous great success, has now been extended to April 2, 2017.
The event allows you to see and read the verses of the Divine Comedy interpreted by the Tuscan Venturino Venturi.
His modern interpretation and interactive tour make this exhibition appropriate for both students and families.
The exhibition brings together 54 works on paper, designed by Venturi in the 80s, combined with triplets of the Divine Comedy, chosen by the Hermetic poet, Mario Luzi. The aim of the exhibition is like the one which had brought together Venturi to Luzi: reinterpreting the work in a modern and more comprehensible way for all.
The route taken by the artist is to give new life to the characters and their history.
Venturi’s work has given more attention to the drawings dedicated to Paradise, the least known and least appreciated of the entire work.
