Two Fascinating Exhibitions at Palazzo Strozzi

Year round, the Palazzo Strozzi foundation puts on a varied program of international exhibitions to engage different kinds of visitors.

On the lower floor, the Centre for Contemporary Culture Strozzina’s purpose is to explore contemporary art and culture.

We went to see the new show; these are our impressions.

Palazzo Strozzi’s new exhibition, “Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino: Diverging Paths of Mannerism”, is up through July 20, 2014.The exhibition focuses on the works of two sixteenth-century Florentine painters who in that period gave a fresh interpretation to the “modern manner”. The first impression in the first room is immediately enchanting. You feel as if you could reach out and touch the difference between the two artists and compare them with the works of their teacher, Andrea del Sarto. As we wandered through the exhibition of more than 80 works, many of which were restored specifically for it, we marveled at the greatness of the two artists and their works, shown together for the first time.


Exhibition at the Strozzina: “Family Matters: Portraits and experiences of family today” explores the theme of family through photographs, videos and installations by 11 contemporary artists. These works help us understand the true bonds that lead us to use the term “family”. Rather than explain what family is, it explains what makes family.

These are deeply interesting exhibitions if you’re looking for a unique experience in Florence that lets you delve into the past with the Palazzo Strozzi exhibition and into the present day with the Strozzina exhibition.
