Invisible Women: The Rediscovery of Historical Women Artists in Florence


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 Wicks for a talk focusing on Plautilla Nelli, Artemisa Gentileschi, Violante Siries Cerroti and Violante Ferroni, and the fascinating journey of their rediscovery and conservation.

REGISTRATION AND PHOTO ID REQUIRE. DOORS OPEN 30 MINUTES PRIOR EVENT START-TIME.

Due to new safety regulations, we are not allowed to add extra seats to the auditorium or anyone to stand. A registration is not a guarantee of a seat as these are assigned on a first-come first-served basis. Doors close at event start-time.

Once the event is full we will not accept wait list requests. A limited number of “last call" registrations will be available on Eventbrite between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM on the day of the event.
