The International Slow Art Day is an experience that takes place simultaneously in different parts of the world. Palazzo Strozzi is participating again for the 2013 edition, offering visitors a new way to experience the exhibition The Springtime of the Renaissance.

Slow Art Day is split into two events:
-On the morning of 27 April, visitors are invited to look at no more than 5-6 works of art…slowly and to find out everything they can possibly discover by observing each work for 10 to 15 minutes.
Materials full of ideas for you take your cue from as you conduct this experiment will be freely avalaible to all participants.
-The event concludes with an open conversation in small groups in the workshop on the first floor where you’ll have the opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions about your experience. During this event, anyone who wishes to may share lunch too, either bringing it from home or buying it at the Renaissance Cafè situated in the courtyard of Palazzo Strozzi.
(No food or drink may be taken into the exhibition. If you bring a lunch pack, you can leave it in the workshop before starting the activity).
