Florence Artistic Heritage
Florence has an exceptional artistic heritage, a glorious testimony of its secular civilization. Many famous representatives of the Italian art were born and raised within Tuscany’s state capital: Cimabue and Giotto, the fathers of Italian painting, lived here as well as Arnolfo and Andrea Pisano, worldwide known reformers of architecture and sculpture. Brunelleschi, Donatello and Masaccio, founders of the Renaissance, were born there; not to mention Ghiberti and Della Robbia, Filippo Lippi and the Angelic, Botticelli and Paolo Uccello. Last but not least, Florence gave birth to two of the most popular and majestic italian geniuses, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Their works, as well as those of generations of artists up to the masters of this century, are contained in the museums of the city. Italian literature owes a lot to Florence, considering that authors such as Dante Alighieri, Petrarca and Boccaccio had their upbringing over there. What are you still waiting for?
