The exhibition is closely linked to the history of the Medici Palace, which houses the marvelous Magi Chapel, one of Benozzo Gozzoli's greatest masterpieces, frescoed on a Medici commission in the late 1550s. Starting with the execution of the Chapel, the exhibition sheds light on the artist and his ties with the Medici family and the city of Florence.

The Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence opens to the public on Tuesday 15 February 2022 Michelangelo: the bronze bust of Daniele da Volterra, an exhibition curated by Cecilie Hollberg. For the first time all the ancient examples of Michelangelo's bronze busts, attributed to Daniele da Volterra, will be exhibited in a single location, thus dealing with the complex relationship between originals and derivations. The main purpose of the exhibition, which will remain open until June 19, 2022, is to produce the first scientific catalog of the bronze busts attributed to Daniele da Volterra. The comparison between the 9 apparently identical busts has never been undertaken, and will certainly reserve some surprises.
At Palazzo Pretorio, until March 27, 2022, the exhibition 'Hi Woman' is on view, featuring the works of 22 international contemporary women artists in dialogue with historicized medieval and Renaissance works from the permanent collection of the Prato museum. "Hi Woman!" is the 'aggressive' greeting that the Archangel Gabriel addresses to the Madonna. The exhibition is presented as the Pop transformation of this debut, projected into contemporaneity.
Until February 23 in the former church of Santo Stefano al Ponte, we find Inside Dalí, an unmissable opportunity to be projected into a mix of cutting-edge technology, images, real artifacts, illusions and allusions. All in perfect symbiosis with the unique universe of the Catalan artist. The immersive digital exhibition, developed with the support of the GALA SALVADOR DALÍ Foundation, is an evocative artistic and multimedia creation that focuses on the life of Salvador Dalí.
The friendship between Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti and the painter, writer and politician Carlo Levi is the focus of the new exhibition of the Fondazione Centro Studi Ragghianti. Curated by Paolo Bolpagni, Daniela Fonti and Antonella Lavorgna, the exhibition is in Lucca to March 20, 2022. The relationship between Ragghianti and Levi was born during the Nazi occupation, through their common political militancy in the Resistance. However, it was not only politics - in the ranks of the Partito d'Azione - that united them, but also the intense confrontation on the issues of contemporary art and a shared sensitivity for the artistic heritage of the country. The exhibition and the catalog offer a testimony, through works of art, letters, documents, photographs and films, of the significance of the friendship between Ragghianti and Levi, also in the light of their cultural formation.
