Hotel Brunelleschi is located in the pedestrian area of the historic centre of Florence, just steps away from the Cathedral and the Signoria Square: a perfect location for visiting the best attractions of Florence, museums, and exhibitions like Caravaggio Exhibition at Pitti Palace.
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, one of the most appreciated, yet one of the most controversial painters, has always been linked in some ways to the city of Florence.
The 4th centenary of his death is celebrated by the exhibition Caravaggio e i Caravaggeschi a Firenze, held in the museums Galleria degli Uffizi and Galleria Palatina of Palazzo Pitti from May 22 to October 17, 2010.
Nowadays, Florence boasts the biggest collection of Caravaggio’s paintings in the world, after the collection that can be found in Rome. Although the presence of Caravaggio in Florence is still a mystery, the Court of Florence managed to gather an extraordinary number of Caravaggio’s works, as well as of his followers and admirers, thanks to the presence of a great number of artists in Florence, during the so called caravaggesco period.
All those who love and admire Caravaggio’s paintings will have the chance to visit the exhibition, gathering more than 100 works, and to enjoy a unique stay at the Hotel Brunelleschi, in the heart of Florence.
