Open Works

for whom: for young people and adults
times: 15.00
duration: 1h15 ‘

During the visit the dialogue with the works and with the visitors will be conducted by a group of migrants adhering to the AMIR project, young people from various countries who have studied the art of our time and of our peninsula by relating it to their own history, their origins, their homeland. The visit will therefore allow you to get closer to some of the works exhibited through the eyes of those who have come to Florence as a “new citizen”: visitors will then be guided by voices belonging to different cultures and invited to observe forms, codes, meanings of Italian art of our time and understanding how the work of art is truly “open” and “the active center of a network of inexhaustible relationships”. (U. Eco)
The visit is proposed as part of the AMIR / Hospitality Museums Inclusion Relationship project, curated by the Municipality of Fiesole, the Municipality of Florence – MUS.E, Istituto degli Innocenti, Primo Conti Foundation, Utopia Station, thanks to the support of the CR Firenze Foundation.

The visit allows you to get closer to the work of the great sculptor Tony Cragg by deepening the history and analysis of some of the works on display.

All of Cragg’s work can in fact be seen as an ode to the infinite possibilities of “form” – whose inspiring muse is nature, which embraces both the microscopic and the infinite – from time to time generated thanks to a careful planning and a wise use of the material.
