01 Jan New Acquisitions 2016-2018
January 22 – June 9, 2019
Conceived and curated by Director Cecilie Hollberg, the New Acquisitions 2016-2018 exhibition, initially scheduled from 22 January to 5 May 2019, has been extended to 9 June. The exhibition presents some masterpieces that, in different ways, have come to enrich the permanent collections, thanks to the commitment and dedication of various institutions expertly coordinated by the Museum Management.
The provenance of the works has followed diversified paths: some were purchased on the antiques market, others were received thanks to generous donations, others from confiscations following illicit exportation by the Carabinieri Command for the Protection of Cultural Heritage, and others, finally, arrived at the Galleria from the deposits of the Certosa di Firenze.
