On the occasion of the exhibition Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino. Diverging Paths of Mannerism, at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence (March 8-July 20 2014), Tuscany celebrates and discovers two extraordinary artists. “Different twins,” born in the same year, 1494, in places not far from one another: Jacopo Carucci in Pontorme, the village near Empoli that lent him his nickname, and Giovan Battista di Jacopo, known as Rosso Fiorentino perhaps because of his red hair, in the shadow of Brunelleschi’s dome in Florence. Although they started out in the same artistic environment, the two painters took career paths that would distance them from one another, becoming lodestars for patrons of opposing political factions and each preferring different experimental expressive means in early-sixteenth-century Florence and Europe. This guide follows Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino – the most anti-conformist and open-minded of the protagonists of a new conception of art in the period Giorgio Vasari called the “modern manner” – in their peregrinations in Florence and Tuscany.
