Florence in the Eyes of the Artist. From Signorini to Rosai

Galleria d'arte moderna di Palazzo Pitti, Florence
17 July - 28 October 2012

"Florence, Florence and again Florence.
Beloved and eternal.
Apparently always the same with its monuments, and yet so many and such very important changes over the centuries (...)
always the same and always new, which the painters of today are creating for the eyes of tomorrow." (C. Acidini)

The Soprintendenza Speciale per il Polo Museale Fiorentino offers its public of museum-goers yet another exhibition, the second scheduled in 2012 at the Galleria d'arte moderna, which will open barely a fortnight after the closing of the show dedicated to Japonism in Italy.
And this time, the protagonist is Florence, a subject that will be appreciated by her citizens and foreign visitors alike, a walk down memory lane to see the city as it was and as it is today.
The exhibition will present 49 paintings, all dedicated to views or depictions of the city taken from various angles: from the airy eighteenth-century visions of Giuseppe Maria Terreni to the romantic views of Giovanni Signorini to the works with a domestic tone in the full XIX century by Lorenzo Gelati or the depictions of city views in the bright shades of the macchia, such as the Mercato Vecchio by Telemaco Signorini. Then come the moving works of the XX century where a new way of depicting the city gives the protagonist's role to a single monument: such is the case of the Chiesa di Cestello by Silvio Pucci and Santo Spirito by Orlando di Collalto. Out-of-the-way squares and streets also play leading roles, as in Rosai's Via Lupo and Via Santa Margherita a Montici, and "the almost pictorial translation of several descriptions by Vasco Pratolini" (S. Condemi), The Triumph of the Street, was awarded a prize at the 1951 edition of the Mostra Nazionale Premio del Fiorino.
The exhibition is occasioned by the return of 16 paintings to the Galleria d'arte moderna following a long-term loan to the former Museo di Firenze com'era. These works document locations of a Florence that either no longer exist or have fatally changed, and are joined by 33 other works dedicated to the city and never exhibited before, which have been selected from the collections of works in storage.
This event has also occasioned a general or partial restoration of the paintings, both those that have returned from their long-term loan and those from storage that were selected for this show.
A visual itinerary that runs parallel to this event has been entrusted to the art photography of Antonio Quattrone whose subjects are the same locations proposed in the paintings, even respecting their angles and visual impact. These images give the visitor a better understanding of the city of the past and of the present. The catalogue published by Sillabe has the inedited cut of a guidebook of the city's history between the XVIII and XX centuries.
Curated by Simonella Condemi, who has also edited the catalogue, the exhibition is promoted by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali con la Direzione Regionale per i Beni Culturali e Paesaggistici della Toscana, the Soprintendenza per il Patrimonio Storico, Artistico ed Etnoantropologico e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze, the Galleria d'arte moderna and Firenze Musei.
