Creative community space Numeroventi is sparking a conversation between Florence and its communities after the Covid-19 lockdown with the collaborative new exhibition titled Past Florence Future - So Close So Good.  





Situated in Palazzo Galli Tassi, along via de Pandolfini, the show involves Tuscan-based artists and designers, who address issues such as: What are the positive habits cultivated during quarantine that we can enhance and maintain? How can our restricted local resources best inform and dictate the future of art and design? How do we contemplate borders and inclusivity in the post-pandemic age? How can we act quickly to put our local resources to use, and take actions with a new speed and decisiveness?

Featured artists include Anna Rose, Bloc Studios, Duccio Maria Gambi, Angus Ogilvie, Bask, Edrev Verde Cordero di Montezemolo, Masa, Mono, Mattia Papp, Guglielmo Profeti, Filippo Anzalone, Ilaria Bianchi, Malgorzata Bany, Esther Chang, Lorenzo Brinati, Pietro Franceschini, Justin Randolph Thompson and Marina Denisova.

The exhibition will run until July 12 (11am-6pm at weekends; by appointment only during the week). Entrance is free, but only a limited number of people can enter at the same time due to Covid-19 restrictions. Reserve your spot here.
