Works of art age, they change over time and they require special care and attention. A major restoration campaign was launched to tie in with The Cinquecento in Florence exhibition.

To enhance a work of art that is often unknown to the public at large and to undescore the important contribution that the restorations promoted by the Friends of Florence association have made to the exhibition, we will be holding a cycle of encounters with the restorers consisting in five evening meetings to discover the life of a work of art as narrated directly by those who look after them.

The meetings will be held in a special room and each meeting will end inside the exhibition with an in-depth explanation before the work of art itself.
