Florence's hours

Forged in Fire. Bronze sculpture in Florence under the last Medici

visite guidate plasmato dal fuoco

Palazzo Pitti, Florence,  untill 12 January 2020

The full power and energy of Baroque art is captured in metal thanks to the living power of fire: that is the basic concept behind 'Forged in Fire. Bronze sculpture in Florence under the last Medici', the exhibition hosted in the Treasury of the Grand Dukes on the ground floor of the Pitti Palace from 18 September to 12 January 2020, showcasing over 170 works of art, with numerous prestigious loans from leading international museums.

The narrative, which unfolds in six rooms on the ground floor of the palazzo, begins with a small selection of masterpieces by Giambologna. It was the work of this sculptor from Flanders, whom Francesco I de' Medici chose as his court artist, that kicked off the great season of Florentine bronze sculpture – a season that was to reach a peak in the mid-17th century in the work of such artists as Giovan Battista Foggini and Massimiliano Soldani Benzi whose fame stretched well beyond the borders of Tuscany, and indeed of Italy.
