In collaboration with Felice Limosani, an artistic visionary, the Portrait Firenze exhibits the installation ‘Remember and Imagine’ a tribute to Florentine artisans who in the 500’s were able to create virtues and timeless beauty. A glass diamond kaleidoscope provides a digital interpretation of the marble floors of the Santa Maria del Fiore Duomo offering a symbolic metaphor of the human capacity to remember the past and imagine the future.
Perfect balance between man and nature. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by Unesco, Val d’Orcia had long been celebrated by the painters of the Sienese school. The route that crosses the province of Siena and Grosseto, displays the most characteristic landscapes of Tuscany and a land full of beauty and history. Hills dotted with cypress trees, the “source square” of the Vignoni Thermal Bath, the Renaissance dream of Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia in its Romanesque splendor. On the culinary side we recommend pici pasta, a glass of Brunello and some Tuscan pecorino cheese DOP.
The twelve districts of Siena are at combat in a race that perfectly resembles the spirit of this extraordinary city. The Palio race, with its horses and jockeys, dates back to the 13th century and is a manifestation of independence, pride and strength of glorious medieval times. The two races take place on July 2nd in honor of the Madonna of Provenzano, and on August 16th on the day of the Assumption.
