The Cinquecento in Florence

If you are travelling in the nearby and wish to spend an autumn day surrounded by art, we suggest you the event The Cinquecento in Florence. From Michelangelo and Pontormo to Giambologna,
hosted by Palazzo Strozzi From 21 September 2017 to 21 January 2018: a spectacular exhibition devoted to the art of the 16th century in Florence showcasing over seventy works of art by such artists as Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Santi di Tito, Giambologna and Bartolomeo Ammannati.

The final act in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Carlo Falciani and Antonio Natali, the exhibition explores an era of outstanding cultural and intellectual talent marked both by the Council of Trent and its Counter-Reformation, and by the personality of Francesco I de’ Medici, one of the greatest figures in the history of courtly patronage of the arts in Europe.

The exhibition also provides Palazzo Strozzi with a fantastic opportunity to forge synergies with museums and institutions both in Tuscany and internationally, while a major campaign of restorations is being launched specifically for the exhibition.

Exhibition opening hours
Daily including holidays 10.00-20.00
Thursdays: 10.00-23.00
