Exploring Sacred Art in Tuscany 1850–1960
To tie in with its exhibition on Divine Beauty from Van Gogh to Chagall and Fontana, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi has produced a special guide and map designed to allow you to explore the sites in Tuscany that still house tangible evidence of a century of sacred art stretching from 1850 to 1960, setting out from Palazzo Strozzi and the Great Museum of the Cathedral. Moving outside the city of Florence proper, the guide takes you on a journey to over fifty sites in all parts of the region, offering you a unique chance to discover the area and pointing up the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi’s role in experimenting with helping its visitors to discover new ways of enjoying art both inside and outside its own walls.
The map includes both “must-do” sites and less obvious points of interest, many of them in enchanting areas where art and nature interact to great effect. This is the first publication ever to explore more than a century of sacred art and to help visitors travel the roads of Tuscany in search of it.
