The Art in Dialogue exhibition offers an opportunity to see terracotta, wax and porcelain works from the Ginori Museum in the little-known 18th-century rooms of Palazzo Marucelli-Fenzi (via San Gallo 10).

The exhibition contrasts the theatrics of the 18th-century paintings by Sebastiano Ricci and stuccoes by Giovanni Baratta with the sculptures created and acquired by the Ginori factory. The halls of the Palazzo Marucelli-Fenzi, open exclusively for the exhibit, stage an original dialogue between the selected artifacts from the Ginori Museum and the decorations created by Ricci and Baratta between 1705 and 1706. The combination of Baratta’s stuccoes with the three wax casts that reproduce works by the same sculptor prove particularly striking.

Manufactured by the Ginori Factory in the 1740s and grouped here together for the first time since 1965, the Euridice and Allegory of Prudence casts now belong to the Ginori Museum, while the Allegory of Wealth cast belongs to the Bargello National Museum.

Created by the Ginori Factory in the 1740s and brought together here for the first time since 1965, the casts now belong to the Ginori Museum (the Euridice and Allegory of Prudence) and the Bargello National Museum (the Allegory of Wealth).

Organized by the Department of History, Archaeology, Geography, Art and Performing Arts (SAGAS) at the University of Florence, together with the Ginori Museum, the exhibition was created in collaboration with the Regional Directorate of Museums in Tuscany and the Opificio delle Pietre Dure with the support of the Friends of Doccia Association. 


Entrance to the exhibition is possible by reservation by email to mostra.fenzi@gmail.com on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with free guided tours for groups of up to 10 people, in a 45-minute window. The show runs until February 17.
