We saw an excellent theater show of an hour in English (the only English-spoken show in Florence) called The Medici Dynasty show explaining all about the last of the Medici’s and how Anna Maria Luisa managed to preserve the art collection for the city.
Anna Maria Luisa’s decision prevented that their big art collection was scattered by forbidding trade of it. The WHOLE collection was to stay in Florence. Florence became a very attractive city in the renaissance for artists that did a Grand Tour to get familiar with the classics in Italy which was a must for any serious artist at that time.
The show is both funny and informative.
Buonasera amici miei,
