Through a selection of paintings, sculptures, metalwork and illuminated manuscripts, with important loans from abroad, the exhibition reveals the leadership of Pistoia in the fine and decorative arts during the Middle Ages. In this way Pistoia challenged other major centres of Tuscany, thanks to the splendor of its monuments and the distinguished patronage that commissioned their decoration.
The exhibition is curated by Ada Labriola, Enrica Neri Lusanna e Angelo Tartuferi. An event by Pistoia Musei and Fondazione CARIPT. Partner Comune di Pistoia, Diocesi di Pistoia. Main sponsor Conad.
