March is the month of #women, an occasion to remember their centrality in the political, cultural and scientific life of all times, their being strong and fragile at the same time, tireless in claiming their role in society and respect for their body, inspiring muses of artists, musicians and writers and themselves creative and brilliant artists in all fields. An occasion to remember that women are "the Other Half of Heaven", as a Chinese proverb already said "Women support half of the sky", taken up in 1968 by Mao Tse Tung precisely to enhance the role of women in society as a resource that complements and improves humanity.

On this last day of February, the month of love par excellence, we ask you what could be more romantic and sweet than a Florentine sunset, in which the blue and red of the sky mix and embrace each other, the lights of the Lungarni are reflected in the placid waters of the Arno??? A joy of lights and colors, a magic that warms the heart.

Museums are an inexhaustible source of #beauty and #culture. In this painting on canvas by Dosso Dossi, preserved in the Museo Horne and made for the court of Ferrara, the artist is inspired by the biblical figure of Tubalcain, represented here as a blacksmith inventor of music, intent on forging notes in the light of a torch. The three hammers scattered throughout the scene allude to the different sounds, obtained according to shape and size. Next to him are two female figures, allegories of profane music and sacred music, the first resting on a six-line circular pentagram, the second on a triangular one where we read "Trinitas in Unum", an allusion to the harmony of opposites found in divine unity.

Do you know what bizarre is? It is a very rare variety of citrus, whose peculiarity lies in the ability to produce fruits that are a cross between bitter orange, lemon and cedar. The fruit was particularly loved by Cosimo I, who was really gluttonous of it. This variety, also much appreciated by collectors for the mutability of the fruits and leaves that are always a continuous surprise for shape and color, is still present today in the Garden of the Medici Villa of Castello, where it can be admired together with other very rare types of citrus.

On February 22, 1299, my first stone was laid by Arnolfo di Cambio and since then I have witnessed many important events in the history of Florentia. I hosted the organs of the Florentine Republic, I was the residence of Cosimo I who renovated and decorated me, as you see me today. I was called "Vecchio" when the Medici moved their residence to Palazzo Pitti. I have been trusted keeper of many secrets, which still today fascinate scholars from all over the world such as the "Battle of Anghiari". It is even said that every 50 years the ghost of Baldaccio in the arms of a leader appears in my rooms, because he was assassinated inside me in 1441. Cosimo de 'Medici and Savonarola were imprisoned in my tower. I was the seat of the Parliament of the Kingdom of Italy from 1865 to 1871. How much history !!! Today I am one of the symbols of Florence in the world and, even today, Palace of Power, as the seat of the Municipality of Florence 😉
Happy birthday, Palazzo Vecchio !!!🎂🎉

Inside the Basilica of Santa Croce, Vittorio Alfieri rests among the illustrious Italians. The Piedmontese playwright chose Florence as his second homeland and here he met his great love
Louise Stolberg, Countess of Albany. The woman, married to Carlo Edoardo Stuart, first lived in Rome and then moved to Florence at the behest of her husband, who was increasingly impatient for the heir who did not arrive and for the libertine behavior of his wife. A refined and intellectual woman who was very active in the salons first in Rome and then in Florence, she immediately won the heart of the young Alfieri. The writer, "bewitched" by her beauty and her spirit, immediately fell in love with her, reciprocated. In 1788, with the death of Carlo, the two lovers were finally able to live their relationship freely. Louise became his muse and their home became a meeting place for the most enlightened European intellectuals including Madame de Stael and Ugo Foscolo. When the writer died, it was the woman who commissioned Antonio Canova to make his funeral monument in Santa Croce, completed only 7 years later, in 1810.

On 18 February 1564 #Michelangelo Buonarroti died at the age of 89. His art reached such high and poetic levels that Giorgio Vasari wrote "Michelangelo is divine rather than earthly". It was enough for the great artist to think of the image enclosed in the block of marble in front of him to give life to his sculptural masterpieces. In #Florence #casabuonarroti, where Michelangelo spent several years of his life and which was the residence of the family for centuries, is today a museum with a rich collection of works, models and sketches: a place of memory and celebration of his genius.

Although #Tuscany has turned orange and museums have had to close their doors again, good news arrives from #NewYorkTimes: an important recognition for our Museo Stibbert, which the reporter Jason Farago has selected among the 5 Art accounts to follow on Instagram. This is the motivation "Florence’s most eclectic and enticing museum is the Stibbert museum, a villa on a Tuscan hillside where an Anglo-Italian amateur named Frederick Stibbert spent his vast inheritance on a regiment’s worth of shields and sallets, cutlasses and cuirasses". While waiting to be able to admire them live again, we can enjoy on the social profile of the museum details of spectacular gilded horse coverings; gem-encrusted Turkish sabers; or a hefty suit of plate armor made for Emperor Maximilian, topped off with a helmet shaped like a lion’s head.
Congratulations!!!!

On #valentinesday we want to "retrace" the story of one of the greatest literary loves of all time: that between #Dante and Beatrice, a love that has crossed literature and centuries and has become the emblem of courtly love.
The Supreme Poet met Beatrice - a fictitious name given to Bice Portinari and chosen for its meaning "she who makes one blessed" - for the first time at the age of nine and Dante needed a single glance to fall madly in love with her. The second meeting took place nine years later, at the age of 18, when the girl was already married. Their eyes met and Beatrice gave Dante a first polite greeting.
Dante's love was intense, Beatrice was also sung in the Vita Nuova and in the Convivio where love is affirmed even on death, as an absolute experience capable of renewing the poet's life. In his beloved Dante concentrated all the sense of his moral commitment, his faith and Love was a supreme value mirror of his choices of justice and truth.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Share our post with those you love.😉😍

Do you know which garden is also known as the "garden of the three gardens"? 🧐 We give you some clues: it is so called because it is composed of three separate areas, each created in a different time and style: the Italian garden; the English wood which, with its exotic elements, represents a rare example of an Anglo-Chinese garden; the agricultural park, with the orchard and the splendid wisteria pergola.
The second clue is the photo ... 😉

February is the month of love and we will tell you some famous stories related to the city. Let's start with the great love between Francesco I de 'Medici and Bianca Cappello. Venetian noblewoman of extraordinary beauty and intelligence, immortalized by painters and writers, Bianca was first the mistress of the Grand Duke, married to Giovanna of Austria, and then wife. Love at first sight !!! The two, after the death of their respective spouses, married in great secrecy and then in 1579 publicly with a ceremony with great pomp. Francesco donated villas and palaces to his great love, including the one in Via Maggio, renamed Palazzo Bianca Cappello, very close to Palazzo Pitti, and adapted Villa Demidoff in her homage. Their dream of love was broken in 1587 in the Medici Villa of Poggio a Caiano, where both died at the same time, according to some for malaria, according to others because they were poisoned with arsenic by Francesco's brother, Cardinal Ferdinando, who was rousing his sister-in-law. And while Francis was buried in the Basilica of San Lorenzo with all honors, Bianca was denied the state funeral and her body was buried in an unknown place.

Do you know that the clock on the façade of Palazzo Vecchio is one of the biggest in the world with its approximately 2 meters long and large and 2,5 meters high. Already in 1353 a clock made in a workshop near the Duomo had been placed on the Arnolfo tower. The new single-hand clock still present on the tower today was made by the German master watchmaker Giorgio Lederle in 1667, commissioned by the Grand Duke Ferdinand II to the court clockmaker J.P.Treffler.

Painters and sculptors have immortalized musical instruments in their works since classical antiquity: zither, flute, lute, violin, guitar, clarinet and many others. However, there is one instrument of which few representations remain, despite having been the protagonist of paintings and sculptures: it is the drum. Among these testimonies stands out the beautiful fresco of the "Damsels dancing in the Garden of Love" that Andrea di Bonaiuto painted in the Cappellone degli Spagnoli in Santa Maria Novella Complex between 1365 and 1368. Here we can admire a drum with rattles, called the Basque tambourine.

“You who live safe in your warm houses, You who find returning in the evening hot food and friendly faces: Consider if this is a man who works in the mud, who does not know peace, who fights for a scrap of bread, who dies because of a yes or a no. Consider if this is a woman, without hair and without name, with no more strength to remember, her eyes empty and her womb cold
like a frog in winter. Meditate that this came about: I commend these words to you. Carve them in your hearts at home, in the street, going to bed, rising; repeat them to your children”.
With these words from #PrimoLeviLevi we want today to remember so as not to forget tomorrow. And as a reminder for memory in #Florence has found a new home the #AuschwitzMemorial, which was located in Block 21: a helical spiral, covered with a canvas that reproduces stories, symbols and moments of life inside the concentration camp to retrace that terrible page of history so that no one forgets.

On occasion of 700th anniversary of Dante's death, the Uffizi Galleries remember the great poet with an online exhibition dedicated to the illustrations of the Divine Comedy by Federico Zuccari. A precious collection of 88 sheets drawn in red and black pencil, a work by one of the protagonists of Italian art of late Mannerism, author of the frescoes of the Dome of Santa Maria del Fiore and a painter much loved by Cosimo I de 'Medici. “To See the Stars Again” takes us through the most representative scenes of Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, a real visual journey through the poet's verses.

20/01/2021

Florence and contemporary art, a well-established combination for which the city internationally is no longer just the cradle of the Renaissance but a city of art par excellence, with a cultural offer that ranges from ancient to contemporary. And it is once again testimony to this the opening of the exhibition “#henrymoore. #TheSculptorsDrawing” at the Museo Novecento. In times of closures and pandemics, a message of hope because, as the English great master of sculpture used to say, "art is not a sedative or a drug, nor a simple exercise in good taste, nor an embellishment of reality with pleasant combinations of shapes and colors; instead it is an expression of the meaning of life and an exhortation to commit to it with even greater efforts”.
