Villa Medicea La Petraia

duration of 1h 30


La Petraia and
the passion for the exotic

Between the 16th and 18th centuries, geographical discoveries opened up an unknown horizon of lands, people, cultures, art objects, botanical species, coming from distant worlds. Villa Medici La Petraia still retains traces of this passion for the exotic, from the portrait of a young albino from Angola, to Chinese watercolors and decorated porcelain vases, the objects tell the gaze that Europe has placed on the world.
