Men in Nature/ Nature with Men group exhibition in Florence
Opening reception Sep 17 6:30pm
On November 4th, 1966, Florence and many surrounding cities found themselves devastated by the raging waters of the flooded River Arno. Thirty-five victims and innumerable amounts of damage were the results of this terrible catastrophe, but so was the solidarity of many Italians, who came from everywhere to save lives, animals, objects, and works of art.
Fifty years later, Florence remembers the natural disaster (followed, unfortunately, by others throughout the territory, even recently) through a series of events, including this exhibition, which will present works from 14 international artists.
The aim of this collective is to promote first and foremost respect for Planet Earth, learning to understand it and consider its unpredictable qualities. We must always remember that we are part of an environment that surrounds and hosts us, but we are not its masters.
