Power and Pathos

Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World

Palazzo Strozzi at the Oblate and in Florence’s Libraries – Power and Pathos

Palazzo Strozzi organises exhibition presentations and family workshops in conjunction with the Biblioteca delle Oblate and other libraries in the city. One Thousand and One Tales is an activity for families that seeks to enhance a work of art’s potential by encouraging participants to think up stories and tales based on it, while Play Your Part in Contemporary Art urges them to discover the many different languages of art that exist today. Using dedicated bookshelves, the Biblioteca delle Oblate also offers advice on reading up the themes addressed in Palazzo Strozzi’s exhibitions.

All activities are free of charge while places last.

Reservations are required for the workshops: Biblioteca delle Oblate – tel. +39 055 2616512; Biblioteca dei Ragazzi di Santa Croce – tel. +39 055 2478551; Biblioteca dell’Orticoltura – tel. +39 055 4627142
