The Municipal Library "Marsilio Ficino," as part of the Spring in the Library 2023 event, is hosting the presentation of the book " Valdarno Land of Museums.
This is a volume dedicated to the main museum institutions of the Valdarno: 16 museums, which fall on two different provinces and which tell (through the words of their directors) the story of communities that, over time, have been endowed with masterpieces, from Masaccio to Beato Angelico to Andrea della Robbia, names known throughout the world as expressions of the extraordinary season of the Florentine Renaissance, or, in more recent times, artists who have been able to make themselves interpreters of today.
"Valdarno Terra di Musei" was created as a corollary to the intense publishing activity promoted by the Arno Association in collaboration with the Accademia Valdarnese del Poggio, thanks to the membership of the museum institutions told.
The volume, which has 80 pages, 50 color images, cartographic apparatus and is translated into English, is designed to be an agile and up-to-date compendium of historical and artistic news, suitable for a diverse audience of citizens and tourists.
