2 Sept-10 Jan. Giotto, L'Italia. Da Assisi a Milano. Thirteen masterpieces by Florentine painter and architect Giotto di Bondone – known simply as Giotto – will be on view in Milan’s Palazzo Reale from Wednesday 2 September until the turn of the year.
He was considered one of the leaders of the Renaissance movement, among the first to make a break with the previous Byzantine style.
The works exhibited here have never been on show before in Milan, and have indeed never been exhibited together. They follow the master’s work from Assisi to Milan at the beginning of the 14th century.
The artworks, most of which are painted on wood, include the Eternal Father from the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua and the legendary Stefaneschi polyptych created for the main altar of St Peter’s in Rome.
