Art Meets Amusement #enjoychiostro

Enjoy, art meets fun, exhibition |

“Pleasure, game, fun, excess dimensions have always been fundamental elements in art. Art drowns in sorrow but feeds on pleasures. Illusion is a transparency that misshapes reality, it’s a semblance in which everything is possible, suggesting either the doubt of a riddle or the smile of a surprise,” says Danilo Eccher, the exhibition’s curator. 

The Cinquecento in Florence. From Michelangelo to Giambologna

The Cinquecento in Florence art exhibit |

With over 70 works from Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Santi di Tito, Giambologna and Bartolomeo Ammannati to name a few, the focus is on the period marked by the patronage of Francesco I de’ Medici. The Medici Family’s history can be traced back to the 13th Century but it was Francesco’s influence on the art in Florence during the late 1500s that this exhibit explores.
