Tour Italy Now wanted to highlight two exhibits underway at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. Picasso, Miro and Dali: Angry Young Men runs through July 17. Yes, these are three Spaniards, but their influence touched Italy, too. A show of emerging Italy artists is also underway. Here’s how the Tuscany’s Regional Tourism website described the two exhibits:
Palazzo Strozzi starts spring this year with a veritable crowd-puller focusing on the earlier of renowned artists like Picasso, Mirò, and Dalì. The show, Picasso, Mirò, and Dalì: Angry Young Men, (Picasso, Mirò, Dalì. Giovani e arrabbiati) runs from March 12 to July 17, 2011 at Palazzo Strozzi. It features over 60 works from these young Spanish artists’ early years.
Always in Palazzo Strozzi, the Strozzina Centre of Contemporary Culture will host Emerging Talents , a show highlighting the works of 16 young Italian artists, aged 25 to 35, including Alessandro Ceresoli, Valentino Diego, Giovanni Ozzola, Antonio Rovaldi, Ludovica Carbotta, Loredana Di Lillo, Invernomuto, Margherita Moscardini, Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Riccardo Benassi, Luca Francesconi, Alberto Tadiello, Meris Angioletti, Rossana Buremi, Patrizio Di Massimo and Luigi Presicce.
