The Renaissance in Tuscany coincided with the apogee of Florentine power and with the rise of the House of Medici, whose patronage was one of the fundamental factors of the extraordinary flowering of culture and the visual arts. The beginning of Humanism, the revaluation of the central figure of the man, brought a revolution on creative, architectural, sculptural and pictorial plan, that affected also the countryside just outside the walls of the city.
The search for the right proportions and harmonies, the geometric synthesis facing classic aesthetic canons, with the Gothic style until then prevailing, they resulted all in a new dimension. Humanism placed the person at the center of a global and articulated art’s planning, determing a revolution on the entire italian and european scene.
This is the history of these valleys.
The POLO LIONELLO BONFANTI is surely one of the most important site that will bring light to Valdarno, also thanks to its inclination to put the man, his life and his concern at the centre of a new renaissance.
