For the 40th anniversary of the inauguration of the Museo delle Porcellane inside Palazzo Pitti, the Soprintendenza Speciale per il Patrimonio Storico, Artistico, ed Etnoantropologico e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze, and the Associazione Amici di Doccia organised an exhibition designed to highlight both the important collection inside the Palazzo Pitti museum and that of the Doccia Manufactory, admired and renowned for hard-paste porcelain making, of the period between 1830 and 1900. Elisa Baciocchi, Napoleon's sister, first as princess of Lucca and Piombino, and later as Grand Duchess of Tuscany, had a particular interest in the arts. Her patronage also encompassed industrial production and Florentine artisanship. In fact, she promoted the production of silk, porcelain, and furnishings. The Ginori Doccia Manufactory stands out among other porcelain manufacturers of this historic period, welcoming technical and stylistic innovations from France. Several artists were sent to Florence to copy the most famous paintings housed in the city's galleries, including Jean David, Joseph De Germain, and Abraham Constantin. The exhibition, curated by Andreina D'Agliano, is composed of about 120 works from the Pitti Palace, the Museo Richard Ginori of Doccia, private collections, and Italian and French museums that collect these type of artifacts.
