11. The Palazzeschi Collection

Having in common the same passion for poetry, art and theatre, the Florentine poet Aldo Palazzeschi and the painter from Ferrara Filippo De Pisis shared important experiences in Paris. The twelve paintings by De Pisis in the poet’s private collection came to civic collections thanks to an agreement with Florence University and are exhibited here in rotation. The many pages that Palazzeschi dedicated to De Pisis are proof of their sincere friendship. On the wall there is a selection of these, referring to some of the works in this collection, presented with the title pages of the most important reviews published in or related to Florence.
