After studying at Harvard and Princeton, Loreto launched a career in textile design and later became a children's furniture designer and book illustrator. Now she exhibits between New York and Atlanta; her ink-on-paper drawings will come to Florence to enter in dialogue with the always-intriguing collections of La Specola.

A special finissage and exhibition visit will take place on September 6 at 6pm with a lecture by Professor Marco Masseti. The show will remain open to the public until September 24.
