The Masterpieces of the Musée d’Orsay at the Pitti Palace
Until January 5, 2014 Florence will host in the Royal Palace of Pitti Palace within the Palatina Gallery a precious collection of Impressionist painting. 12 masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay will be on display in the Ballroom of the Winter Area of the Modern Art Gallery.

In fact, the Musée d’Orsay, in a sign of reciprocity, loaned 12 Impressionist masterpieces as a result of an important contribution from the Gallery of Modern Art that in Paris, at the Musée de l’Orangerie from last 10 April to July 22, had made possible the realization of the “The macchiaioli des italiens Impressionistes” exhibition.
In addition to the Impressionist masterpieces, outstanding loan from the Musée d ‘Orsay, from September 30 visitors with the same entrance ticket to the exhibition can not only see the permanent collection of the Gallery of Modern Art, but also at the “Andito degli Angiolini”can admire the “Nineteenth Century, Twentieth Century” exhibition.
Also by the end of October, in the same Andito degli Angiolini, there will be a personal of the painter Possenti, curated by Antonio Paolucci.
All these initiatives, along with the free guided tours in the district of the Duchess d’Aosta every Tuesday until December 17th, predict an autumn with a lot of cultural events organized by the Modern Art Gallery of the Pitti Palace.
