Till May 19th Florence welcomes the exhibition “From Boldini to De Pisis: the masterpieces of Ferrara in Florence”, with over 60 works coming from the Galleries of Modern and Contemporary Art of Ferrara, damaged by the May 2012 earthquake, and now under restoration. An artistic initiative of great value, as it permits these masterpieces (from artists such as Filippo De Pisis, Carlo Carrà, Achille Funi and Giovanni Boldini) to be admired by visitors instead of remaining closed in a depot till the end of the works. As I deeply love Giovanni Boldini, and his portraits of splendid women of the Belle Époque, painted in brilliant colours and with dynamic lines, I saw this exhibition in the rooms of Palazzo Diamanti last December, when I was in Ferrara for the New Year’s celebrations. Now that these masterpieces have come to Tuscany, I warmly recommend to take advantage of this great occasion!
In Florence the exhibition can be visited in two different locations: The Gallery of Modern Art in Palazzo Pitti and Villa Bardini.
An initiative in the name of art and solidarity between two towns, symbols of the Italian Renaissance, and tied by years of collaboration, proven by artists such as Boldini and De Pisis who, born in Ferrara, spent study and working periods in Florence.
