Heaven in a Room

Tue, 12/10/2019 - 10:00 to Sun, 03/08/2020 - 18:00

The exhibition illustrates the coffered wooden ceilings known as "Heavens" in the Renaissance. The exhibition is curated by Claudia Conforti, Maria Grazia D’Amelio, Francesca Funis and Lorenzo Grieco.

At once both constructional and ornamental elements of the interior space, these ceilings are a compendium of technique, art and symbolic representation. bringing Classical culture up to date in the renovation of churches and palazzi that swept Florence and Rome in the 15th and 16th centuries. The exhibition will be showcasing drawings largely belonging to the Uffizi's own collection, illustrating ancient prototypes such as the Domus Aurea and the Temple of Bacchus in Rome; designs by the Sangallo family, Vasari and his workshop, Michelangelo, Zucchi, Maderno and others; and the monumental load-bearing trusses. The exhibition will be enriched by paintings, engravings, models and genuine Renaissance lacunar panels. Interactive devices will also acquaint visitors with some of the finest and most important wooden ceilings in Rome and Florence.
