New Exhibits, Stores and Restaurants Bow in Florence

Palazzo Strozzi is hosting a major retrospective exhibition of video-artist Bill Viola. Called “Rinascimento Elettronico” [“Electronic Renaissance”], the showing features Viola’s works from the early Sixties to more recent pieces. The exhibition, which has been cocurated by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi’s general director Arturo Galansino and Kira Petrov, Bill Viola Studio’s executive director, aims to compare the artist’s works to those of four masters of the Renaissance such as Pontormo, Masolino da Panicale, Paolo Uccello and Lucas Cranach. Aspiring to set a dialogue between technological research and aesthetic considerations, the exhibition also celebrates the bond between Viola and Florence, the city where he started his career and which has always been a source of inspiration.
