Introducing the private art collection of one of Florence’s most eminent families, the Corsini family.

Featuring Renaissance and Baroque paintings by Italian artists such as Botticelli, Tintoretto, Caravaggio and Pontormo – these extraordinary works of art have been preserved over centuries, surviving the devastation of World War II and the great flood of Florence. This personal collection includes portraits, landscapes, mythological and religious paintings, plus fascinating decorative objects and furniture from the Palazzo Corsini.

Leaving the city it’s called home for 600 years, this is the first time this collection has toured outside Italy and will be the only showing in Australia.

Experience for yourself this uniquely visual history of passion, fortune, and survival.
