Tuscany tour: Journey inside the Centro Pecci at Prato

Until 28th January 2018, you can participate in a Tuscany tour featuring three decades of contemporary art presented at Prato’s Centro Pecci.

As a part of this recommended Tuscany tour in Prato, you can journey through the Centro Pecci Collection and immerse yourself in the work of sixty Italian and international artists. At this Prato art exhibition, you can explore environmental installations and various video works that represent the synthesis of art in the last half century.

As you make your way through the exhibit, you’ll travel through Pinot-Gallizio’s “Cavern of the Antimatter” to Fabio Mauri’s “Moon” exhibit. Excitingly, Mario Merz’s “The Spiral Appears” is also on display – a futuristic work of art that draws influence from the art and architecture seen in Paolo Scheggi's inter-chamber plastic.
