A journey through the history of art between the Middle Ages and the contemporary age, with about three hundred selected masterpieces from the thirteenth to the twentieth century: from Giotto, Filippino Lippi, Lorenzo Lotto, Michelangelo, Tintoretto, up to Boccioni, Casorati and many other masters of the last century .
It will be a monstrous exhibition. With “Dante. The vision of art ", organized in Forlì, in the San Domenico Museums, and scheduled from 1 April to 11 July, the Cassa dei Risparmi Foundation of Forlì and the Uffizi Galleries, as part of the celebrations promoted by Mibact, will tell 360 degrees the figure of the Supreme Poet, in the 7th centenary of his death.
The result of a strong partnership between the two entities, the exhibition is not just an opportunity to give substance to Dante's anniversary: in the difficult moment that the whole world is experiencing, it also intends to represent a symbol of redemption and rebirth not only for our country , but of the world of art and the spirit of culture and civilization that it represents.
The choice of Forlì as the setting for the exhibition is part of a strategy to enhance a place and a territory that is not just a natural bridge between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Forlì is a Dantesque city. In Forlì Dante found refuge, leaving Arezzo, in the autumn of 1302, with the Ordelaffi, Ghibelline lords of the city. He returned to Forlì, occasionally, even later.
