Event Details

Since 1905, the Villa Romana in Florence has welcomed contemporary German artists who have been awarded the Villa Romana Prize. They live and work for ten months in the neoclassical villa on the Via Senese, exploring the city and its surroundings, presenting their works on location and enjoying the high concentration on their artistic work. It is not unusual for places, stories and people in Florence to become the subject of new works.

On the occasion of the Day of Giornata del Contemporaneo - Italian Contemporary Art, Villa Romana is presenting in the Italian Embassy nine artists who have worked in Florence in recent years.

The Ambassador of the Italian Republic Luigi Mattiolo has the pleasure to invite you on the occasion of the 15th Day of Giornata del Contemporaneo - Italian Contemporary Art, 

Wednesday, October 9th 2019, 6.30pm to the presentation:
