Until the 21st of January 2018, Florence will be hosting an incredible exhibition that will be the host of a minimum of 70 different pieces of artwork, created by none other than Renaissance masters such as Michelangelo, Rosso Fiorentino, and Santi di Tito.

The Cinquecento is a night dedicated exclusively to, is an appreciation of the art of the 16th century; exploring an “era of outstanding cultural and intellectual talent”. The majority of these works were indeed spawned within the city of Florence itself, thus not only adding to the occasion once more, but the poignancy involved in the contribution of Francesco I de’ Medici to Florence.

Hosted at the Palazzo Strozzi as the third main exhibition by Carlo Falciani and Antonio Natali since 2010, many other important figures in charge of Tuscan museums will be present forging stronger ties between the surrounding regions of Florence, and also their contribution to the Counter-Reformation.

The exhibition’s opening hours are between 10am and 8pm, including holidays. With an extra few hours on Thursdays, opening between 10am and closing at 11pm.
