Leonardo, creative genius and museums as cultural hub: the future of tradition

In occasion of the initiative “Amico Museo” promoted by Regione Toscana – this year dedicated to Leonardo, creative genius and museums as cultural hub: the future of tradition- the City of Florence, the  Metropolitan area of Florence and MUS.E suggest a schedule of tour and exceptional path, that will allow the public to appreciate the city’s heritage in a new way.

Horizons. New looks on art of the 20th Century.

During the tour, a dialogue with the artworks and the visitors will be held by a group of migrants of AMIR project, young coming from various countries that have studied the art of our time and Peninsula by creating a link with their history, their origins, their homeland. The tour will allow to get closer to some works of art with the eyes of someone who comes to Florence as a “new citizen”: the visitors will be guided by different cultures’ voices and invited to observe in a new way the shapes, the codes, the meanings of the italian art of our time, to fully understand how the work of art is “open” and  “active center of a network of inexhaustible relationships”(U.Eco). The tours are proposed by AMIR/ Accoglienza Musei Inclusione Relazione, curated by City of Fiesole, City of Florence –MUS.E, Istituto degli Innocenti, Fondazione Primo Conti, Stazione Utopia, thanks to the support of Regione Toscana and della Fondazione CR Firenze.
