Florence 9 January – Italian contemporary Pop artist Pep Marchegiani calls upon the Mayor of Florence: Matteo Renzi to promote modern art in his city. He maintains that Florence, the ‘cradle of the Renaissance, must also cradle contemporary art.’
Florence has always had a reputation as the centre of the Renaissance and contemporary art has difficulty in finding a niche in the artistic world of the city. Marchegiani, 42, is known for his iconoclastic paintings and his latest work is no less affronting. He has used an interpretation of the famous Michelangelo’s David as a call for the city to join the artistic 21st Century.
Vita Italian Tours has comprehensive visits to Florence on a number of our guided tours.
