Visit to the Museo

 all, 10+
time: 3.00p.m
duration: 1h15’

The visits allow you to retrace back the twentieth century by identifying the movements, poetics and artists that have marked the decades. Starting from the 1988 Venice Biennale, intended as the first recognition of the young Florentines De Lorenzo, Guaita and Catelani, the route revives the tensions and ideals of the seventies and sixties – with great works such as the Superarchitettura by Archizoom and Adolfo Natalini or the Plurimo by Emilio Vedova – and then delve into the central years of the twentieth century, richly represented thanks to the donations of important artists and collectors (among them Alberto Della Ragione, in whose collection stand out masterpieces by De Chirico, Sironi, Casorati, Depero, Morandi, Martini) and reach the dawn of the century, animated by the first impulses of the international avant-garde.

Total work of art

: families with children aged 4 to 7
duration: 1h15’

The path allows younger children to approach the arts of the twentieth century with a transversal look, participatory and inclusive. The itinerary focuses on selected works, such as the continuous installation by Paolo Masi, the colourful architecture by Superstudio, the painting made of gestures and colours by Emilio Vedova, the sculptures by Martini, Pitti’s high-style fashion and the musical experiments of Grossi and Chiari, which will be the occasion for a multisensory meeting with the arts. In the second part of the activity, children, divided into small groups, will work to give shape to a “total work of art” that brings together their collective experience by interweaving the different artistic languages.

Please note that all guided tours and activities are free for citizens resident in the metropolitan city of Florence and booking is mandatory. At the time of booking it is possible to reserve only one appointment during the day for a maximum of 5 people.
