Ambrogio Lorenzetti was one of the greatest painters in the whole of Europe in the 14th century, but ironically is one of the least known.

He is universally known as the painter of 'Good Governance', the cycle of allegorical paintings and of extraordinary urban and rural visions. But besides this, most have absolutely no notion of the work of this creative artist who profoundly renewed a host of iconographic traditions. We've gone to visit this new exhibit, stay tuned for a review and photos soon!

Extended until February 11, 2018

The exhibition will present a full review of all the hypnotic, astonishing and overwhelming masterpieces of the great Dutch, with the help of some curious exhibition solutions designed by the architect Cesare Mari and thanks to the use of technologies and multimedia, one of the characteristics of organized exhibitions at Palazzo Blu.

While remaining a long-standing landscape interpreter, Escher explores more and more the horizons of visual illusion, through geometric compositions, or creating "impossible" architectures.

The Virgin's belt, housed in a Chapel of the Duomo of Prato, will be at the center of the new exhibition in the Palazzo Pretorio Museum. The Sacred Celticle, about 80 centimeters of finely green wool and gold-plated brocade, has, since the 13th century, been a precious symbol of the city's identity value and the engine of Prato's artistic events.

The theme of the exposition: the aversion of Giorgio Vasari (from Arezzo) for certain artists. He even went as far as to describe these artists as having a: "bizarre" approach to the manner (style of art), shamelessly insensitive to him, and to the aesthetic ideal of "grace" that characterizes the excellence of pictorial production of the period.

This is a special “outreach” exhibition connected to the ongoing show at Palazzo Strozzi 'Il Cinquecento exhibition in Florence. Between Michelangelo, Pontormo and Giambologna '. This showing in Arezzo feature work by artist from the same time period: Jacone, Tommaso Bernabei, called Il Papacello, Maso da San Friano and an unpublished 'Madonna with Child' made by Bacchiacca.

Whimsy and Reason. Staged in the museum’s historical textiles room, the exhibition is a journey into the style and trends of eighteenth-century artistic culture, through fashion, textiles and the decorative arts. A unique and unprecedented exhibition stretching over a hundred years, one which is so rich and complex like that of the eighteenth century. More than 100 objects will be exhibited including fabrics, women's and men's clothing, porcelains, shoes, buttons, gloves, headgear, paintings and engravings that will tell the continuous and significant style passages that follow this historic period, from exotic "whims" of the first half of the century up to the classical austere forms of the neoclassical.

City: Pisa

Where: Galileo Galilei Airport

Well into the third edition of this initiative by the Henraux Foundation together with the Tuscany Airports, you will find a collection of 9 sculptures from Park Eun Sun gracing the Pisa airport.

This renowned Korean artist, a long time resident of Versilia, arrived in Italy to satisfy his desire to work with Apuane marbles. His artwork, known on an international level, is remarkable for the pure geometric forms composed of bi-color slabs of marble.

It has been more than 25 years since I took my first steps in Italy and I still haven’t found a good reason to leave.  Between the food, the culture, the history, the art, the landscapes … did I mention the food? I have become a lifelong student. It didn't take long to learn that Italians all have stories that long to be told; stories that paint a picture of how hard work produces character, how life is made of ups and downs and how good it feels to laugh.
