Until September 28th the iconic Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti in Florence will host Jacopo Ligozzi “PITTORE UNIVERSALISSIMO”, the exhibition curated by Alessandro Cecchi, Lucilla Conigliello, Marzia Faietti in collaboration with Anna Bisceglia and Giorgio Marini, that for the first time showcases the wide activity of the Veronese painter Jacopo Ligozzi in the Florentine panorama. Among the famous series of “naturalia”, allegories and altarpieces is a real surprise to discover even his role as designer of clothes, bizarre glasses, scenic design and fine storied marble tops made by the grand-ducal manufactory.
