Pontormo’s table. Recipes from great chefs classic ingredients and artistic inspirations

21.00

In April of 2014, world-renowned chefs from twenty of Tuscany’s top

restaurants and hotels – as well as a clergyman from the Certosa of

Florence – arrived at Palazzo Strozzi in the heart of Florence to visit

the exhibition Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino: Diverging Paths of Mannerism. This

singular experience led to a publishing project, sponsored by the Palazzo

Strozzi Foundation and intended to further celebrate the exhibition. Art

historian Ludovica Sebregondi pored over the painter’s diary to reveal his

almost obsessive habit of recording what he ate and drank; Italian food

journalist Annamaria Tossani asked the chefs to create recipes based on

the diary and paintings of the artist Pontormo. For the chefs, the diary’s

most important lesson corresponds to the old motto, “Eat well using

simple, local ingredients.”

Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino in Florence and Tuscany

15.00

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.

Uninspired Architecture

24.00

Il volume presenta un ciclo di 250 fotografie in bianco e nero dedicate da Marco Mazzi alla città di Tirana (Albania). Gli scatti sono stati realizzati nel 2013 nell’ambito del programma di residenze d’artista promosso dal Department of Eagles di Tirana e curato da Vincent W. J. Van Gerven Oei, filologo e direttore dell’ufficio progetti per le arti e le scienze umane del dipartimento. Il progetto è incentrato sulle circostanze sociali e politiche che hanno favorito la trasformazione concreta della città attraverso la funzione classificatrice dei codici interpretativi ed estetici messa in atto dalla tecnologia e dai media informatici, dallo sviluppo industriale e dall’affermazione del capitalismo internazionale.
