The Renaissance dream in Florence

These are the last days to discover the amazing exhibition The Renaissance dream at the Palatine Gallery Galleria in Palazzo Pitti open until 15 September 2013. Then the exhibition will move to the Luxembourg Museum in Paris from 7 October 2013 to 26 January 2014. We invite you to live a dream holiday at the Hotel Brunelleschi, 4-star hotel in the heart of the historic center of Florence, with cozy and historical rooms and suites fully renovated.

The Renaissance dream in Florence at the Pitti Palace

This exhibition will offer visitors a chance to explore a theme as absorbing and as fascinating as the Renaissance Dream, shedding light on its richness and variety. The theme of the dream was considered to be of particular importance in ancient mythology and in the culture of the Renaissance, as shown by its widespread popularity in the figurative arts, particularly in works of religious art or in connection with the rediscovery of Classical mythology. Whether prophetic or premonitory, illustrated with famous stories from the Old Testament (Joseph explaining the dreams of Pharoah, Jacob’s dream and so forth) or from visionary hagiography (the dreams of Constantine, St. Francis, St. Ursula and so on), the dream presents itself first and foremost as a manifestation and a revelation of a different world. It also displays, in a secular sense, the speculative and inductive potential that it offers the human mind; it transfigures daily life and reveals its erotic dimension; it plays a valuable role in the theory and practice of art, which focus just as much on dreams as they do on literature, philosophy and medicine.
