From September 21, 2017 to January 21, 2018 Palazzo Strozzi hosts “The Cinquecento in Florence. From Michelangelo and Pontormo to Giambologna, a spectacular exhibition devoted to 16th-century Florentine art showcasing over 70 works of art by artists such as Michelangelo, Bronzino, Giorgio Vasari, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Santi di Tito, Giambologna and Bartolomeo Ammannati.


The final act in a trilogy of exhibitions curated by Carlo Falciani and Antonio Natali that began with Bronzino in 2010 and was followed by Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino in 2014, the exhibition explores an era of outstanding cultural and intellectual talent marked both by the Council of Trent and its Counter-Reformation, and by the personality of Francesco I de’ Medici, one of the greatest figures in the history of courtly patronage of the arts in Europe.
