The Renaissance in the land of Arezzo

Cortona,

The Renaissance in the land of Arezzo

From Fra Angelico and Piero della Francesca to Bartolomeo della Gatta and Luca Signorelli in the Val di Chiana

A series of initiatives aimed at promoting the territory have again been set up as part of the 8th year of the Little Big Museums Project. This year's event is focused on the Val di Chiana. For the first time, Filippo Lippi's altarpiece with The Coronation of the Virgin, originally in the Arezzo Church of the Monastery of San Bernardo, returns from the Vatican Museums to the National Museum of Medieval and Modern Art in Arezzo. This altarpiece introduces us to the beauty and artistic blooming of that time. An elegant Renaissance, which, anticipated by Fra Angelico's Annunciation in Cortona, breaks through in the Bacci Chapel where Piero della Francesca finished Bicci di Lorenzo's work and left his mark in the Arezzo Cathedral, in particular in a niche where the pensive Magdalene observes us. The initiative continues in Cortona's museums to discover the territory of the Valdichiana and its heritage.
