Florentine Renaissance Art In The Domestic Sphere: Art And Daily Life In Renaissance Florence

22 April 2020 - 18:00

Virtual Cultural Event, on Zoom

by Alan Pascuzzi


Why did Florentine Renaissance painters execute portraits of women like the Mona Lisa?  What was the real reason for fresco cycles in the great Florentine churches of Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella?  How did wealth, birth, death, politics and even plague influence the making of art in Renaissance Florence?     

This lecture by Dr. Alan Pascuzzi, painter, sculptor, art historian and author,  will explore how art accompanied, commemorated and glorified the lives of the Florentines in the Renaissance. 

The talk will last about 40 mins, and will be followed by a discussion using the power of video conferencing.  

We recommend that you treat yourself to a glass of wine to enhance the occasion – just like a regular Wednesday at Palazzo Lanfredini!

We request that you make a donation (however much is comfortable for you) if you wish to participate in the session. Your donations will help keep the Institute afloat at this difficult time; and we will give 50% of the money we receive to "Il Cuore di Firenze Foundation"   who are raising funds for urgently needed ventilators in Florence.

Thank you for your support
