Autumn in Florence: Exhibitions not to be missed

Autumn in Tuscany is a beautiful season, with the vibrant fields of green turning gold, making the cypress trees seem even more vibrant. But there’s another reason why autumn is a wonderful time to visit Tuscany – not only can you benefit from low-season prices but there is also a wealth of autumn exhibitions to enjoy.

Florence, in particular, offers a range of diverse and intriguing exhibitions. Here are some of our favourites, which are not to be missed if you are holidaying in Florence this autumn.


The Cinquecento in Florence

Despite the name, this exhibition is not about the iconic Cinquecento car. Instead, it is a stunning collection of 70 works of art by famous masters, such as Michelangelo, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo and Giambologna. It is being hosted at Palazzo Strozzi between 21st September 2017 and 21st January 2018, and aims to focus on the period in history when Florence cermented its reputation as an artistic jewel.


Japanese Renaissance: Nature on Screen Paintings from XV to XVIII

While the Renaissance period is often associated with Florence (it is known as the Jewel of the Renaissance after all), this wonderful time in art history was certainly not limited to Europe, and instead was a worldwide movement. This exhibition at the iconic Uffizi Art Gallery will be open until 7th January 2018 and honours the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Italy and Japan. Through atmospheric sliding screens, the exhibition draws attention to the history of Japanese art and is a wonderful treat for anyone with an interest in the Renaissance.


Utopie Radicali

From 20th October 2017 to 21st January 2018 visitors to Palazzo Strozzi in Florence can enjoy a unique exhibition focused on the radical art movements of the 1960s and 1970s in the Florence, featuring pieces by Archizoom, Remo Buti and Gianni Pettena.


Lloyd: Tuscan Landscapes of the Twentieth Century

Villa Bardini will host an enjoyable exhibition focused on a collection of the most significant works of Lloyd, featuring 62 pieces by the painter from his time in Florence.
