The Renaissance in Florence
Wednesday 22nd May

They say that half of all the Art in the world is in Italy, and half of that is in Florence. Clearly an exaggeration, but revealing the impulse to credit this great and beautiful city with the re-awakening of classical values and the invention of a new way of seeing the world, starting with Literature and expanding to include the Architecture, Painting and Sculpture millions of us travel to this enchanting city every year to see.. We look at many of the greatest artists of all time, including Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli, Fra Angelico, Donatello and the early life of Michelangelo and Leonardo. Something to bring tears to your eyes (well, that’s Stendahl effect for you).
