Son of Cosimo I and Eleonora of Toledo, history has painted Francesco I de’ Medici as an introverted and moody prince, an alchemist, little inclined to leadership and politics. Francesco’s Studiolo, his secret Wunderkammer in the labyrinth of Palazzo Vecchio, is his greatest legacy. But this exhibition takes into consideration his status as was one of the most genius representatives of court patronage in Europe with 70 masterpieces by Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Santi di Tito, Giambologna, Bartolomeo Ammannati… One of the most important art exhibitions in Italy during the autumn/winter 2017/2018 season.
