In the climate of the Abbeys

In the climate of the Abbeys


Firenze – Church of San Jacopo in Campo Corbolini - 2017

With our project "FROM THE MIDDLE AGES TO THE CONTEMPORARY" we want to revive the climate of silence, patience and peace that was cultivated in the monasteries, in the abbeys. In these places science, literature and art have been cultivated.

In 2017, thanks to the collaboration with the prestigious Florentine institution LdM Institut, a university institute that welcomes students from the universities of the world, we exhibited, in the splendid Church of San Jacopo in Campo Corbolini, perfect reproductions, which have now become rare in collecting, of a series of masterpieces whose originals are hidden in the most important libraries.

There is almost no way to see them if not for a few scholars.

This is the meaning of reproduction which is not always understood in its historical and artistic value. To revive masterpieces in contact with the hands of the public. Leaf through, albeit with delicacy, pages otherwise inaccessible and which contain a fundamental cross-section of the centuries that lie at the roots of modernity.

We also exhibited 10 masterpieces by the "Painter of the Abbeys", the Master Silvestro Pistolesi
