While the The Cinquecento in Florence exhibition is now open (quick reminder: until January 21st 2018), the curators have designed an itinerary in and around Florence to enjoy and understand even better the spirit and the masterpieces of the exhibition itself.

Not to mention some special events that you can enjoy while in Palazzo Strozzi!

The Cinquecento in Florence Exhibition focuses on the Mannerism and Counter-Reformation related artworks in Florence with works by Michelangelo, Andrea del Sarto, Giorgio Vasari, Santi di Tito, Alessandro Allori and Giambologna.

Many of the works – such as the three Depositions by Pontormo, Rosso Fiorentino and Bronzino – have been restored expressly on the occasion of the current exhibition.

The Cinquecento’s Fuorimostra

The Fuorimostra – literally out of the exhibition – project gives to the art aficionados even more: a guide and an itinerary – an “art trek”, we could say – to enjoy the topics and the artists of the exhibition in other Florence locations and around Tuscany.
