The exhibition Medioevo in Pistoia (Tuscany), open up to 8 Mat 2022, puts on display Romanesque and Gothic artists, illustrating for the first time the extraordinary panorama of the arts in Pistoia from the 12th to the beginning of the 15th century. Revealing the city’s leading role in the field of figurative arts in the Middle Ages, it is organized by Pistoia Musei. Between the Palazzo dei Vescovi and the Civic Museum of Pistoia there are over sixty paintings, sculptures, goldsmiths works and illuminated manuscripts on display.

Famous artists flocked to Pistoia

Divided into six sections, the presentation starts from the arrival of the relic of San Jacopo to the city, moving to the 13th century when Pistoia played a leading role in the field of international figurative arts, then to the 14th century with the arrival of many illustrious artists of the day. In the late-Gothic period, despite the loss of political autonomy and the definitive submission to Florence, the city maintained its position of pre-eminence in the panorama of Tuscan painting.

“Covering even the most remote parts of the region”

During the Middle Ages Pistoia vied with the other major Tuscan cities for the importance of its monuments, their furnishings and the art of its goldsmiths and miniaturists.  "We are convinced that what makes Italy, and Tuscany in particular, truly unique and envied around the world is the scattered museum which goes beyond its own borders, reaching out to even the most remote parts of the region”, said Alessandro Tomasi, Mayor of Pistoia For information: www.pistoiamusei.it
