One of the landmarks of Florence's artistic life is returning to its former glory. Set in the jewel of the Convent of the Santissima Annunziata, the Chapel of St. Luca or Cappella dei Pittori (Painters’ chapel) finally regains its original colors and forms thanks to a two-year restoration project. The imposing frescos by Giorgio Vasari, Santi di Ti...

A piece of news that once again binds the fortunes of Italy and the USA in the field of art, bounced a few weeks ago in the social media: the purchase, by the Getty Museum, of a work by Jacopo Bassano, il Miracolo delle quaglie (the Miracle of the Quails).
