1) Guided tour | Visit to the Palace
Palazzo Vecchio is the heart of Florence, a symbol of the city's history. A story that begins in 1299,
when it was born to house the rulers of medieval Florence, and which experienced a golden age in
moment in which the Medici family brings their residence there, transforming it into a real one
Palace. The visit allows you to understand how architecture, minor arts, sculptures and paintings
contribute to the creation of a rich and complex unicum that has been transformed, stratified and renewed
over the centuries.
Duration 1h15'
When: every day h10.30 - 12.00 - 15.00 -16.30

2) Guided tour | The Medici Palace
The rooms of Palazzo Vecchio still clearly tell the transformations that took place in the
sixteenth century, when Cosimo I de' Medici moved his residence there commissioning the work first Giovanni Battista del Tasso and then Giorgio Vasari. Alongside the governmental functions, the palace thus assumed the role of Reggia Ducale, hosting not only the ducal family but the entire court.
The itinerary allows you to visit the main rooms of the Palace with particular attention not only to the glories and beauties of the Medici age but also to aspects of daily life, recalling the customs, events and curiosities that animated both the public rooms and the private rooms.
Duration 1h15'
When: every day h10.30 - 12.00 - 15.00 -16.30

3) Guided tour | The palace with eyes closed
The traditional visit to Palazzo Vecchio relies heavily on sight: the gaze rests on the paintings, sculptures, decorations, but also on the lights, atmospheres and spaces. However, this is not the only sense that is brought into play; and without sight all the others activate and explode. For an hour and a half, sighted and blind visitors will join one another for a visit experience based on touch, hearing and smell: to realize how much the museum – and the world – without eyes
become even richer and more meaningful.
Duration: 1h15'
When: every day h10.30 - 12.00 - 15.00 -16.30
 
4) Laboratory | Paint in fresco
“Of all the other ways that painters do, painting on the wall is the most masterful and beautiful”. This is how Giorgio Vasari presents the fresco technique, considered one of the most difficult because it does not allow for second thoughts and requires perfect knowledge of materials and pigments. The atelier allows you to try your hand at the different phases of making a small fresco, which at the end of the activity the participants can take away with them.
Duration: 1 meeting, 1h15'
When: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 9.30am or 11am

The workshop includes 2 meetings of 3 hours during which the participants will be able to experience how this material is worked, reproducing a detail from the Sacristy of Masses and a fretwork motif, typical of Islamic art.

In fact, light, refinement and a taste for decoration constitute the distinctive characteristics of this technique in all cultures. The laboratory aims to make people understand the fundamentals of gilding through practical exercises. We will apply gold leaf to classic Islamic art styles (geometric and arabesque motifs, ornamental designs, calligraphy) by reproducing a detail on a wooden tablet, discovering symbols and meanings common to
the whole Mediterranean.

Guided tour: Duration 1h
When: every day from Tuesday to Friday from 10
1) Guided tour | twentieth century museum
The visit allows you to retrace the 20th century by identifying the main lines of artistic development of the 20th century, with a strongly interdisciplinary approach and specific attention to Italy and Florence. The most recent works on the ground floor – from Paolo Parisi's MUSEO writing-installation on the facade to the works by Remo Salvadori, Paolo Masi, Marco Bagnoli and Maurizio Nannucci – are therefore the way to enter the multiplicity and gazes of the twentieth century arts, characterized from the plurality of languages and researches. A particular focus will be dedicated to the precious Alberto Della Ragione Collection, which includes great artistic masterpieces and which allows you to read the main historical events of the years between the two wars.
Duration: 1h15'
When: Wednesday and Thursday h9.30 or h11.00

2) Laboratory | Born in the twentieth century
The 20th century, unlike all other centuries, has a particular characteristic: many of us have lived and crossed it, shaped it and have been shaped by it. It is therefore a historical period of which most of us have a memory and direct experience, as much of the historical, political, social events as of the urban transformations and artistic evolutions. Convinced that a museum today finds its completion precisely in the relationship and participation of the public and in the awareness that this "human heritage" is inevitably, little by little, destined to disappear, the Museo Novecento invites all those born in the last century to give his own contribution, sharing a short story (2 minutes maximum) that is emblematic of the twentieth century: a personal episode, an event, a memory that will help keep alive the memory of a century now over. Participants will be asked to combine their story with one of the museum's works, enriching them - once again - with a new meaning. All the precious contributions will be collected and processed, giving life to a "digital museum" ... which we will all have contributed to create.
Duration: 1 meeting 1h15'
When: Wednesday and Thursday h9.30 or h11.00

3) Laboratory | Collage, the art of choosing
In collage, a purely twentieth-century technique, brushes, colors or crayons are not used, but a "choice" is made by critically selecting and superimposing details of images, photographs, magazines, writings and more to create and compose something new. In this sense, the resulting work is often alienating, not wanting to delude reality but to tell a way of seeing that uses the forms of representation to go further. After a brief visit to the museum, in which the works that have their distinctive trait in the "composition" will be highlighted and attention will be paid to the possible ways of depicting reality, the participants will be able to try their hand at making a portrait/ self-portrait in the form of a collage/décollage which, going beyond the idea of realistic reproduction, includes emotions, qualities, expressions and characters of the person
represented.
Duration: 1 meeting 1h15'
When: Wednesday and Thursday h9.30 or h11.00

4) Laboratory | You and I, the art of portraiture
The art of depicting oneself and the people around us is at the origin of painting itself, which sees its legendary birth in the profile of a face traced on a wall by his beloved, tracing
the shadow cast by a lamp. Crossing the centuries, the twentieth century presents itself in this sense as a particularly interesting field of exploration, in which attention is brought not only to the external forms but also to the thoughts, attitudes, reflections of the subject, becoming a true sounding board of the human identity. The works exhibited in the museum will be the starting point for a captivating atelier in which the representation of oneself and of others will build a special experience to look at us and those who accompany us in a new way.
Duration: 1 meeting 1h15'
When: Wednesday and Thursday h9.30 or h11.00
