Florence, 31 May 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).

From 9 June 2012 to 4 November 2012 the Uffizi Gallery (Galleria degli Uffizi) will display a major exhibition recounting the panorama of Florentine art from 1375 to 1440. Entitled “Bagliori dorati. Il gotico internazionale a Firenze, 1375-1440” (“Bagliori dorati. The International Gothic in Florence 1375-1440”), this event sets out to celebrate once again this era’s artistic and cultural climate.

In the event, the museum’s curators have chosen to blend already well known works with other more enigmatic and less famous pieces. Paintings and sculptures (both religious and pagan) will be displayed and will offer a global vision of art between 1375 and 1440. The Uffizi Gallery has brought together works from international public and private collections for the occasion. Visitors will notably have the opportunity to discover works by artists such as Agnolo Gaddi, Spinello Aretino, Antonio Veneziano, Gherardo Starnina, Lorenzo Monaco, Lippo d’Andrea, Mariotto di Cristofano, Giovanni Toscani, Ventura di Moro, Francesco d’Antonio, and Arcangelo di Cola.

Due to its prestigious collections, the Uffizi Gallery is considered one of the most important museums in the world. First opened in 1765, it has a surface area of more than 8,000 m2 dedicated to the display of works by Italian and European masters. Today, these collections are available on iPhone or iPad thanks to the Uffizi Touch application.
