Florence Capital City 1865-2015: The King's Gifts and Collections

This exhibition is aimed to celebrate the anniversary of Florence as Capital City of Italy and, at the same time, to show the king Vittorio Emanuele II's artistic tastes and passions.

Starting from November 18, 1865 - when the Parliament was moved from Turin to Florence - Palazzo Pitti became the new king's residence, where he collected many works of art that thus represent and testify his artistic style and enthusiasm, while giving an exact snapshot of the palace aspect during that period.

The exhibition ends on April 3rd. For more info: http://unannoadarte.it/
