Florence is gearing to host the exhibitions planned for 2006. A new city policy emphasises the value of offering both tourists and residents regular and important art exhibitions. This has led to the organisation of some notable forthcoming events, including two major shows in March alone. The first, set to open on March 1, is dedicated to adopted Florentine artist Giam-bologna. And, at the end of the month, an even larger show will be devoted to one of the greatest artists of all time, Leonardo da Vinci.
