The Mayor of Florence has just announced that the Medici collection of 100 tapestries, divided for over one hundred years between Rome and Florence, will return to the Palazzo Vecchio’s Sala dei Dugento, also know as the Sala dei Cosiglio Communale, in its entirety.
The collection, which depicts various scenes based on the parables of Joseph, will be rotated for display in the Dugento.
Created between 1545 and 1553 these gorgeous works of art were based upon designs by such leaders of the Mannerist movement as Pontormo, Salviati and Bronzino.
When you are in Florence, please be sure to visit the Palazzo Vecchio. It houses an invaluable treasure of art. This returning collection further ensures the Palazzo’s historic stature within the history of Renaissance Italy.
