The Uffizi make their debut in Japan, with an exhibition entitled “Arte a Firenze da Botticelli a Bronzino: verso una ‘maniera moderna’” at the Metropolitan Art Museum in Tokyo. 76 works from the Uffizi and other Florentine museums are featured, including Botticelli’s “Pallas and the Centaur”.
The opening was attended by Lorenzo Morini, chargé d’affaires at the Italian Embassy in Tokyo, senior figures from Japan’s art community, and a delegation from Florence, Pistoia and Prato. The exhibition runs until 14 December 2014. Read more, in Italian.
