Mid August in Florence 2013

One of the most beautiful and elegant city of Italy is the ideal destination for the warm night of August. No crowded beaches and queues on the motorway, but a dip in the culture of historic monuments and works of art. Florence welcomes you to enjoy shows, events, concerts and events and the background of its beautiful setting. Until September 15, at the Palazzo Pitti in the Palatine Gallery and the Royal Apartments, you can admire the exhibition The Dream of the Renaissance that will offer visitors the opportunity to enter for the first time in an engaging and fascinating topic, trying to highlight their richness and variety. The theme of the dream takes on a particular importance in ancient mythology and culture of the Renaissance, as evidenced by its spread in the visual arts and especially in religious works or linked to the rediscovery of ancient myths. The exhibition In the splendor of the Medici, until October 6, at the Museum of the Medici Chapels, celebrates the figure of Leo X, the first pope of the Medici family, a 500-year election to the papacy. There are among other works by Botticelli, Andrea Sansovino, Granacci, Ghirlandaio and Perugino to illustrate the education of the future pope, the cardinal and the events of the pontificate. Three sections dedicated to the figure of the pope and celebrate the works of the most important representatives of the Florentine art scene and beyond. The ivories of the Florentine tradition, dating back to the Medici collections, along with other precious inlays from major international museums and other treasures have never been exhibited before. The exhibition Diaphanous passions. Baroque ivories in the European courts open until 3 November, will exhibit at the Museo degli Argenti a total of 150 masterpieces. A spectacular new chapter in the history of art: a chapter never studied before, especially in its "international", so peculiar, the Medici collections.
