A FLORENCE THAT WILL BE. AT THE UFFIZI. The Museum Without a City.

May 08, 2013
What future for Florence? AT THE UFFIZI. The museum without a city, scheduled for Thursday May 16 at 6 pm at the Sala delle Reali Poste of the Uffizi, is the occasion to discuss ideas, share visions and imagine the city of tomorrow. "The city of Florence, especially its historical center, is very closely tied to the Uffizi and to the masterpieces collected in its prestigious museum", the talk organizers state. "But what sort of situation can we observe from this privileged point of view?" The talk is organized by the Ordine degli Architetti di Firenze (the local Association of Architects) in collaboration with Image as part of the A FLORENCE THAT WILL BE program of public conversations and architecture videos that are open to citizens, architects, planners and city administrators to discuss ideas, share visions about new and desirable scenarios for Florence. Stefano Boeri, architect, and Michele Dantini, art critic and historian, will take part in the conversation.
