Florence, Palazzo Pitti, Galleria d’arte moderna
7th March 2019 – 26th May 2019
Celebrating women – peasants, workers, entrepreneurs, artists, writers and others – through works that reveal their role in society from the nineteenth to the twentieth century, this exhibition covers the period from 1861 and the first enrolment of women to the Artisan Brotherhood, up to 1926, when writer Grazia Deledda was the first Italian woman to receive the Nobel Prize.
Exhibited works document the variety of talents that women have brought to their work and to knowledge, in sectors ranging from the most humble work in the fields to to arts and crafts, literature and science. The exhibition is a fascinating meeting of art and social history.
The exhibition is in the Gallery of Modern Art at the Pitti Palace, Florence, and entrance to the exhibition is included in this ticket.
