Less publicized exhibitions you might miss
We know: there are many reasons to visit the art cities or other places, and there are always many things to do and see in the first months of the year. However, we have been looking for less publicized exhibitions that you might otherwise miss. In the period covered by this newsletter, the months up to March, we chose exhibitions that somehow have women as their theme, thus linking us to the International Women’s Day on March 8.
In Florence, at the premises of the Bank of Italy, very close to the Duomo in Via dell’Oriuolo, you can visit the exhibition Verso la modernità. Presenze femminili nella collezione d’arte della Banca d’Italia (“Towards modernity. Women in the art collection of the Bank of Italy”). That is a collection of paintings that describes the way forward towards the emancipation of women, and also what still remains to be done on this path, from the late Nineteenth to the Mid-Twentieth century. The exhibition also offers the opportunity to visit some rooms of the Palazzo della Banca d’Italia, that are normally closed to the public.
The entrance to the exhibition is free from Thursday to Sunday by reservation on the official website until 10 March 2024.
The exhibition Roma pittrice. Le artiste a Roma tra il XVI e il XIX Secolo, will take place all year round. It’s about female artists in Rome between the Sixteenth and Nineteenth century, from Artemisia Gentileschi to Angelika Kauffmann.
The exhibition can be visited at the Museo di Roma in Piazza San Pantaleo, 10 – Piazza Navona, 2 from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
In Venice, at Ca’ Rezzonico – Museo del Settecento Veneziano, you can visit until February 14, 2024 the exhibition of miniatures on ivory by Rosalba Carriera: Rosalba Carriera, miniature su avorio. These are brush portraits on small ivory supports that made her famous in the European courts of the Eighteenth century. The Palace is worth a visit also without the pretext of the exhibition.
The exhibition is open from Monday to Sunday. Book the visit online on the website or send an email to email@example.com.
If you can enjoy a few days of leisure in the art cities, contact our facilities in Rome, Florence and Venice to ask for availability and a quote. Your stay in the Case Valdesi will support the social projects of the Diaconia Valdese.
