YTALIA: the contemporary art in the symbolic places of Florence
The Exhibition YTALIA opened 2nd June and it will last until 1st October 2017 offers the national and international public the opportunity to encounter some of the major artists of our times. Over one hundred works, exhibited at Forte di Belvedere and in some of the symbolic places of our heritage: a veritable museum of contemporary art, in the heart of the city, between interior and exterior, between the Middle Ages and Renaissance, between museums and gardens, funerary chapels and areas of political life, galleries and studios, cloisters and crypts.
The Ytalia exhibition strengthens the image of a city of contemporary art, which together with the artists reflects on its civil history and artistic heritage, on the great cultural legacies of the past, on present-day society, on the permanence of myths and fables, on common archetypes and different iconographic traditions, on the exchange between artistry and art, between the arts and sciences, between sacred science and anthropology.
The exhibition has the aim to introduce, thanks to a small number of selected artists, some of the possible common factors part of many other artists of three different generations: that of post-war period, that becaming famous during Sixtys and that debutting in Seventies.
