21-06-2016 - 02-11-2016
The Uffizi Gallery holds the most important existing collection of rare art industry of glyptics, small hard stone sculptures produced mainly in the Hellenistic and Roman times, whose technique was lost in the Middle Ages, only to be rediscovered and revived during the Renaissance. The exhibition, the first devoted to this particular artistic production, will bring together all the micro-sculptures of the Medici collection, alongside these other examples of plastic in precious materials, in order to obtain meaningful comparisons that highlight the unique technical and stylistic characteristics of these objects.
