The Springtime of the Renaissance. Sculpture and the arts in Florence 1400-1460

Il sacrificio di Isacco ,Filippo Brunelleschi. Fotografia di Lorenzo Mennonna. S

The exhibition, which is divided into ten themed-based sections, explores the origin of what is still today known as the “miracle” of the Renaissance", doing so mainly through 140 marvellous works of art, principally sculptures, the art form that more than any other has interpreted that "revolution”.

The event reunites a number of absolute masterpieces of extraordinary quality, coming from museums all over the world. Works by Donatello, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Nanni di Banco, Luca della Robbia, Nanni di Bartolo, Agostino di Duccio, Michelozzo, Desiderio da Settignano, Mino da Fiesole, as well as paintings by artists like Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Andrea del Castagno, and Paolo Uccello.

Renowned works that have entered the “collective imagination”, and which highlight the birth of the "myth” of Florence: a model of "universal beauty” that still today retains its allure.
Until 18 August.
