FloReMus – Conversation: Simonetta and the others, women in the Florentine celebrations of the 15th century

with Paola Ventrone

The conversation outlines the change of womens’ role in the Florentine celebrations of the 15th century.  Between the oligarchic regime and the Medici rule the ceremonial transformations highlight the way in which the Burgundian gothic style, preferred by the élites of the city at the beginning of the century was gradually substituted by the classicist and neo-platonic style, conceived as a new and distinctive form of the political language of the Florence of Lorenzo the Magnificent. This process is defined through a selection of paintings, marble busts and objects, analysed in the light of the festive and ceremonial events of the period.

Free entrance.
