Held at the Palazzo Coveri Gallery from November 17 to December 21, 2017, the show displays the myriad styles of Florentine artist Giambaccio.


Artist Giambaccio’s real name is Giovambattista Giannangeli, a Florentine lawyer who broke away from the legal profession, throwing himself into his art.After ten years in the forensic profession, feeling frustrated by the continual repetition, I thought to myself, ‘Is this really all here?’ In 2005, I began to paint like a madman, as if I suddenly realized a complicated passion I had repressed and it blew me away.”





Giambaccio held his first show in 2007, with his first solo exhibition in April 2010 at Etrarte Gallery and a collective show titled Oltrarno at Florence’s Palazzo della Regione in May 2010. His most recent solo show was Ritrattati, 500 portraits of Florentine figures in June 2014 at the Bellini Museum.


The exhibition along the lungarno Guicciardini includes the iron-and-wood Trojan Horse, 10 canvases focusing on the theme of power, 6 mixed media sculptures and a video installation by Ottavia Poli. Entrance is free.
