If you’re in Florence this time of year, you are one lucky pal. You’re avoiding the summer crowds and you’re experiencing just the beginning of autumn, a perfect moment to start crawling into warm closed spaces. Our favorites are bars and museums, and if you prefer the latter, today we bring you one exhibition that you won’t want to miss.
Divine Beauty: From Van Gogh to Chagall and Fontana will walk you through religious art reinterpreted by the biggest contemporary artists. The exhibition, held at Palazzo Strozzi, reunites artworks by more than 100 Italian and international artists from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. Van Gogh, Millet, Picasso, Ernst and Matisse’s paintings are included in this amazing collection. Their takes on religion, art and the clash between both will amaze you!
Divine Beauty is part of a series of events planned to run alongside the Fifth National Bishops Conference, which will be held in Florence in November and will be attended by Pope Francis. After a day full of art, get a good night sleep at Il Salviatino!
