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!

Jewelry: from its conception to the realization and all the steps in between. Young designers from following a Masters in History and Design of the Jewel at the University of Siena will be on display in Arezzo. These neo-designers started their training in 2017, and now have the opportunity to offer the public the opportunity to see the works they have created. The main objective of the exhibition is to explain all the phases that precede a prototype of jewelery by using their work as the visual to understanding the details and thought that goes into each piece.

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.
Pisa | VOLAREARTE
When: Until 2019
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.
