The special Christmas art exhibition returns this year with four great masterpieces from the city of Florence. With a zero-impact display by architect Franco Achilli, “Charity and Beauty. Tino di Camaino, Beato Angelico, Filippo Lippi, Sandro Botticelli” will enable the public to admire: “Madonna and Child” by Sandro Botticelli, “The adoration of the Magi” by Beato Angelico, “Madonna and Child" by Filippo Lippi and the sculpture “Charity” by the Sienese Tino di Camaino.
Promoted by the Comune di Milano and Intesa Sanpaolo – institutional partner – and sponsored by Rinascente, the exhibition is organised together with the Comune di Firenze and the Città Metropolitana di Firenze, in collaboration with Gallerie d’Italia in Milan.
Curated by Stefano Zuffi and organised by Civita Mostre e Musei, the exhibition will continue also in eight public libraries in the decentralised municipalities which, from 13 December 2022 to 13 January 2023, will host 8 masterpieces from the Istituti di Assistenza ASP Golgi Redaelli, ASP Istituti Milanesi Martinitt e Stelline e Pio Albergo Trivulzio, Fondazione Ca’ Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Istituto dei Ciechi, Castello Sforzesco and Galleria d’Arte Moderna.
Visitors to the Christmas exhibition at Palazzo Marino will receive a coupon for a reduced price to visit the exhibition “From the Medici to the Rothschilds. Patrons, collectors, philanthropists” at Gallerie d’Italia in Milan in Piazza della Scala and for the “Breathtaking beauty” guided tour.
The traditional Christmas exhibition at Palazzo Marino examines the theme of beauty from various different angles: from the tender gaze of a mother towards her child with Filippo Lippi and Botticelli, to the refined artistic virtuosity of Beato Angelico, through to the beauty of the act of giving in the marble work of Tino di Camaino. This immersion into the realm of beauty continues at Gallerie d’Italia with the exhibition “From the Medici to the Rothschilds. Patrons, collectors, philanthropists”, which takes us through to the art of the 20th century and focuses on the untiring work of patrons and collectors of paintings, literary works and music designed to satisfy the yearning for beauty pertaining to all of us.
When: every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2 December 2022 to 15 January 2023 at 17:00, except for 24/12, 25/12 and 31/12.
