Florence is home to great masters of Italian Renaissance art such as Botticelli, Donatello, Leonardo and Michelangelo but few people know that the city nourished women artists as well. Through the joint efforts of Italian museums such as the Uffizi and the US organization Advancing Women Artists, these often-forgotten women are now being rediscovered and their works restored and exhibited once more.

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, join us and conservator Elizabeth Wicksfor a talk focusing on Plautilla NelliArtemisa GentileschiViolante Siries Cerroti and Violante Ferroni, and the fascinating journey of their rediscovery and conservation.
