MUSEO OPERA DEL DUOMO
Piazza del Duomo, 9
50122 Firenze, Italia
The Museum is a unique repository of faith, craftsmanship, history and art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. In 2015, the Museum reopened with a new museological project. Innovate, value, and educate are the keywords of this great construction project thought out and planned by its Director, Mons. Timothy Verdon, and architects Adolfo Natalini, Piero Guicciardini, and Marco Magni.
Students are invited to meet with Francesca Baldry, Villa La Pietra’s Collection Manager, and discuss the works of art and their display in this newly redesigned space. With the assistance of the museum staff, students will also learn about the latest educational approaches (Museum: Digital Transformation and TouchAble).
(Opened to NYU Students and Faculty only)
Museum Meetings is a cycle of conversations in art spaces designed for all students. It is dedicated to various aspects of art and museums in Florence: art, collecting, display, iconography, techniques and media, conservation, and the role of museums in society today. The program originates from the Acton Collection and expands to other art locations in the city. All the meetings are conceived as discussions and envisage an active participation.
