Choreographical commissions between Florence and Paris

with Gloria Giordano

In collaboration withCittà Metropolitana di Firenze, Mus.E, Palazzo Medici Riccardi for the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of Cosimo and Caterina de’ Medici

Caterina de’ Medici’s artistic commissions were an expression of the dialogue between two cultures and were apparent in various contexts inevitably overlapping with her political project. The presence in France, as in the rest of Europe, of Italian dance teachers promoted the spread of and the development of dance forms that had been already experienced in Italy, thanks to the building of musical performances designed by Caterina de’ Medici. These performances gained a general appreciation and were named magnificences.
