In line with the principles of Progetto Cultura, Intesa Sanpaolo, owner of the Palazzo degli Alberti in Prato, has promoted and reopened to the public the Galleria di Palazzo degli Alberti, home to cultural heritage of tremendous value - in terms of identity - for the city. The collection, originally acquired by Cariprato, is now owned by Banca Popolare di Vicenza S.p.A. in L.C.A.
Every weekend, people will be able to visit the Gallery free of charge and admire masterpieces by Caravaggio, Giovanni Bellini, Filippo Lippi and Puccio di Simone, an array of works from Florence dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries, and sculptures by Lorenzo Bartolini, a Prato-born artist active in the first half of the 19th century.
This initiative was made possible thanks to ongoing constructive dialogue with Banca Popolare di Vicenza S.p.A. in L.C.A, which now owns the works, and the invaluable collaboration and courtesy of the Municipality of Prato and the Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio per la Città Metropolitana di Firenze e per le Province di Pistoia e Prato.
