Florence is an open-air museum to which we add the heritage preserved in more or less famous museums and galleries. It is not common to have also a particular area as ‘Forte Belvedere’ where organize intense-exhibition in the open. It is one of two forts that offers a view of Florence from above in an atmosphere of unique tranquility.
A walk uphill will be rewarded with a panoramic view of Florence and in this period we can visit the statues of ‘Human’ by Antony Gormley, among bastions and terraces
Each side of the fort houses one hundred works of this British artist: thanks to the position of the Fort, the statues can dialogue with the surrounding environment, with a special added valued that evidently only Florence can offer to the exposition
Among all the statues, the group named ‘Critical Mass’ absolutely not pass unnoticed: twelve figures that tell the ascent of a man who looks finally to the city in a new modern humanism, dedicated to all victims of the twentieth century. The creation, in 1995, was designed for the old tram depot Vienna and will remain in Florence until September.
The Forte Belvedere thanks to ‘Human’ is transformed and offers its visitors an unforgettable experience and a different and innovative point of view of Florence. Insert it in your next trip in Florence, only after booking your hotel in Florence with www.vivafirenze.it.
