Exhibitions (and "newly" available art) in Florence right now

Jump to last reply

As far as I can see, the only temporary exhibitions in Florence between this Xmas and New Year are "Francis Bacon and the Existential Condition in Contemporary Art" (the kind of show I'd normally book a holiday on the other side of the world to escape), and "The Thirties: Art beyond Fascism" (fine, and possibly worth seeing if Islington didn't have more than enough bloody Futurism in the Estorick already)

There's plenty of real art to squeeze into our few days' Florentine rest after hillwalking anyway, so I'm not moaning. But is there really no obscure insight into Ghiberti's private life, or recently restored fresco in a nice Dominican church, that's currently on show and unlikely to be viewable next time?

And to be really lazy: what proper stuff (post Roman, pre Baroque) is now visible in Florence and its immediate hinterland that wasn't ten years ago?
