Today we visit two of Florence’s splendid museums.
Where we will discover the whole history of Florentine Renaissance art, from Donatello to Cellini—as well as the dense gay history of Renaissance Florence that their work embodies.
We start the morning at the Bargello, where we will see several key male nude sculptures from the Renaissance, including Donatello’s David—the first freestanding male nude after ancient times; we then plunge into the Uffizi, the greatest of all collections of Renaissance paintings. Bursting with masterpieces, the Uffizi is also a storehouse of homoerotic art by artists as varied as Botticelli, Leonardo and Caravaggio.
After breaking for lunch, we turn to the Medici neighborhood, where we will discuss the family’s amazing record as ‘gayfriendly’ art patrons while visiting their original palace and their funerary chapel for which
Michelangelo created some of his greatest sculptures.
