Florence events in late January
2018 came round soon enough, and here we are already at the end of January while the cold weather is hopefully soon subsiding. As we have aided you through the cold wind and rain, battled the winter season with many exciting recommendations for you, here are two more events for those enjoying Florence out there.
Paint like Botticelli
On Via del Palazzo Bruciato at building number 14, beginning on the 30th of this month there is a free painting class for you to attend. Running over a span of three whole days on Tuesday, Thursday, and then Saturday; taught by two alternating artists Stephen Ninnes and Alessandra Camera in the style of both Botticelli and Da Vinci.
The classes on each day run for 8 hours and all materials are provided. Providing that you have the time free, what a great chance this is to forget about the world and dedicate yourself to something new!

David Hockney dalla Royal Academy of Arts
At the Cinema Odeon Firenze Royal Academy of Arts, David Hockney will be hosting an exhibition starting on Tuesday, January 30th. Starting precisely at 9pm, and closing at 10:30pm, you have on the first night a small chance to view this Gough-esque genius’s work; his Bigger Picture (2012) work, 82 portraits and one still-life (2016) piece of artwork.
David Hockney is often described as one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century, influenced by Pablo Picasso, going on in his later years to develop stage designs and more literal painting styles.
