Best Art Exhibitions in Florence 2022
Are you planning a trip to Florence this year? We take a closer look at a few of the unmissable art exhibitions on in Florence in 2022. From Renaissance masters Michelangelo and Donatello to contemporary artistic experiments by Eliasson and 20th century Italian artists Chini and Berti.
MICHELANGELO, the three “Pietà” – Museo Opera del Duomo
For the first time in history, the three sculptures of the ‘Pietà’ by Michelangelo Buonarroti – the great master of Italian Renaissance – are shown together. The Bandini Pietà (also known as ‘Deposition’) is placed side by side with the world-famous ‘Pietà’ normally housed in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and the Rondanini Pietà, at which Michelangelo worked until the very last days of his life.
Being able to admire these sculptures in the same room will allow visitors the unique possibility to compare them and understand how the Michelangelo’s style developed throughout his life. From the first Vatican ‘Pietà’ (1498-99)- an unprecedented interpretation of the subject – to the unfinished, and ethereal Rondanini Pietà (1564).
