Visit to Villa Il Palmerino, the garden and the exhibition The Angeli Brothers. An Exportation of Style between Florence and America (1910-1960s), curated by Francesca Baldry. Located in the rooms of the historical Villa, it is a reconstruction of the Bottega of the painters, with some never-before-seen works, photographs and the sketches of the decorations of the four villas where the brothers worked in the 1920s in Florida and California, in Paris, and on the French Riviera. Meeting with the Angeli descendents, who still own the villa, to talk about the recent discoveries in the archives. (Event opened to NYU students and faculty only)

Museum Meetings Spring 2018 – From the Archive to the Museum
Museum Meetings is a cycle of conversations in art spaces designed for all students. It is dedicated to various aspects of art and museums: art, collecting, display, iconography, techniques and media, conservation, and the role of museums and art archives in society today. The program originates from the Acton Collection and expands to other art locations. All the meetings are conceived as discussions and envisage an active participation.
