Firenzenotte is unable to monitor the events that are cancelled, sometimes even with very little notice, due to the Coronavirus. Before going to the premises, please check directly with the organisers if the venue is open or if the scheduled event is confirmed.

Friday 12 April, again at 9.00 pm, at ETRA - Studio Tommasi - the fourth meeting will be held with art historian Elisa Gradi who will talk about Paul Gauguin, a fugitive poet in a lost paradise, who left everything at the age of forty-three to follow his primitive inspiration and reinvent western painting. It is in fact the first of April 1891 when he leaves Marseille for Tahiti, in Polynesia. In the Tropics, Gauguin will remain there almost continuously until his death. Twelve years of desperate and feverish search for authenticity, total immersion in lush nature, sensations, visions and colors each time more pure and bright will be.

We remember the last two appointments:
Friday, April 26th Edward Munch between anxiety and passion: the human crisis of the western world and his evil of living, and on Friday 3rd May Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele and the exploration of the unconscious: art defies conformism.
