The Palazzo Pitti Watches from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century
13-09-2016 - 08-01-2017
A significant selection of the more than two hundred eighty watches, Palazzo Pitti heritage. Singular art objects witnesses of the passing of the days of those who lived in the Florentine palace of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The choice of the specimens will allow to appreciate, in the various embodiments, an extraordinary quality, both in terms of technical-scientific view and the purely artistic one. Singular instruments composed of two souls: the mechanism, often sophisticated and complex, and the box that was created to protect the delicate contents, turned into real work of art, with its own value.
