23 Sep


The exhibition  ‘From Donatello to Lippi.

Artists of the calibre of #Donatello, #Michelozzo, #Maso di #Bartolomeo, Paolo #Uccello, #Filippo #Lippi and his son #Filippino Lippi were called to realise the pulpit intended to show the relic of the Holy Belt, the frescoes in the Chapel of the Assumption and the Great Chapel, and other furnishings. To them, we must add the son of Fra Filippo, Filippino, who took his moves from Prato and there returned to work in his later years.


The exhibition shows a selection of works of great quality. Some of them are preserved in #Prato, but in different  #museums in Prato and some others came from foreign collections.


The exhibition is opened from the 13 September 2013 to the 13 January 2014. Contacts for information and bookings:
