Pisa | VOLAREARTE

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: Until 2019

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.

 


Massa-Carrara | DOPO CANOVA

Sculpture from Florence to Rome

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: July 8 - October 22, 2017

City: Massa-Carrara

Where: Palazzo Cucchiari

For Hours see Website

The exhibition illustrates two particular moments of the process of renovation of Italian sculpture in the first half of the nineteenth century: the Roman panorama still dominated by heirs, direct collaborators, Canova and Thorvaldsen, and the Florentine area where, without difficulty, imposes the "novelty" of Lorenzo Bartolini's teaching.

 


Siena | LA BELLEZZA FERITA

Norcia, Earth Heart Art Quake.

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: December 23, 2016 - October 29, 2017

City: Siena

Where: Crypt of the Duomo Santa Maria della Scala

Italy rallies and embraces the zones that were devastated by the earthquake on the 24th of August. Siena, following a long tradition of giving refuge to those in need, has opened the crypt of its Duomo to house several important pieces of art while their original homes (churches, monasteries and convents) are repaired.

On exhibition will be various pieces recused from the debris immediately following the tremors that have left a permanent mark on the central region of Italy. A collection of paintings, sculptures rescued by the Protezione Civile, the Corpo Nazionale Vigili del Fuoco, and the Comando Carabinieri will be open to the public to admire together with videos showing the rescue efforts and their damaged homes.

 


Pistoia | GIOVANNI BOLDINI

the seasons of the family Falconiera

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: September 9, 2017 - January 6, 2018

City: Pistoia

Where: Musei dell’Antico Palazzo dei Vescovi

The exhibition aims to bring it back the extraordinary creative moment of the master of Ferrara, when moving between Pistoia, Florence and Castiglioncello. The pictorial cycle invites you to probe the mystery around Mrs. Falconer's origins, her role as patron of the unhappy but genius Boldini and the Macchiaioli style.

 


Prato | LEGATI DA UNA CINTOLA

the identity of a city

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: September 7, 2017 - January 14, 2018

City: Prato

Where: Museo di Palazzo Pretorio Piazza del Comune

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.

 


Pisa | ESCHER

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: October 13, 2017 - January 28, 2018

City: Pisa

Where: Palazzo Blu (Palazzo d'Arte e Cultura)

For Hours see Website

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.

 


Siena | AMBROGIO LORENZETTI

amazing artist from the XIV century

Contemporary & Classical art exhibits in Florence & Tuscany

When: October 22, 2017 - January 28, 2018

City: Siena

Where: Crypt of the Duomo Santa Maria della Scala

For Hours see Website

Ambrose was one of the greatest painters of the whole of Europe in the 14th century, but one can say - as it may seem like a paradox - that he is a little-known artist.

He is universally known as the painter of 'Good Governance', the cycle of allegorical paintings and the extraordinary urban and rural visions. But besides this, the painter is not known by the unmistakable creativity that has profoundly renewed many iconographic traditions.

 



Author: Donna Scharnagl

It has been over 24 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. And I soon learned 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.
