An Etruscan revival is taking over the Palazzo Vecchio this month. In conjunction with the G7 Culture Summit, the Chimera di Arezzo will go on special display in the Sala Leone X as part of the exhibition Chimera Relocated: Taming the Beast (until 27 April, 2017). Completing the show are a sketch of the Chimera by Baccio Bandinelli and Bandinelli’s bust of Cosimo I. The three-piece combination highlights the 16th-century interest in Etruscan history and objects, with Grand Duke Cosimo I leading the trend. Though the Chimera was accidently found in 1553 during a dig outside the Porta San Laurentino in Arezzo, Cosimo I was known to express his love of Etruscan history through commissioning archeological campaigns and digs, and did not hesitate to claim the newly-rediscovered Chimera for himself. The find was quickly brought to the Palazzo Vecchio, where Cosimo I insisted the piece be put on display in the Sala Leone X. Bandinelli would later sketch the Chimera, largely celebrated in the artistic and academic community, as well as cast a bust of the Grand Duke.
