Middle Ages in Pistoia
Crocevia di artisti fra Romanico e Gotico
The exhibition takes place during the Jacobean Year, celebrating the cult of St James, and presents for the first time the extraordinary panorama of the arts in Pistoia from the 12th to the early 15th centuries. It is addressed both to specialists and to the national and international public.
Through a selection of paintings, sculptures, metalwork and illuminated manuscripts the exhibition will reveal the leadership of Pistoia in the fine and decorative arts during the Middle Ages. In this way Pistoia challenged other major centres of Tuscany, thanks to the splendor of its monuments and the distinguished patronage that commissioned their decoration.
