Reading of pieces chosen by "The Florentine art under fire" by F. Hartt
Published in 1949 with the original title "Florentine Art Under Fire", the book is the chronicle of the events lived in first person by the author, Frederick Hartt, then young and intrepid art historian, in the ranks of the American army during the Second World War as part of the commission known today as "Monuments Men". Hartt was one of the two responsible for the protection of works of art for Tuscany: his account, enriched by the testimonies of other protagonists of the struggle for the salvation of the Tuscan artistic heritage, is a stimulus to the reflection on the vulnerability and the role of art in relation to conflicts between peoples.
The Metropolitania 2018 project is realized in collaboration with the Florentine Municipal Libraries with the contribution of the Municipality of Florence - Florentine Summer, of the Tuscany Region and of the Fondazione CR Firenze.
