On the hills of Florence, Villa San Michele stands as a masterpiece, both in its exterior and interior. Its façade, meticulously crafted by the School of Michelangelo, marks the beginning of the artistic journey that awaits within.
Here, the past and the future intersect, all within a villa that seemingly hovers above the rest of the world.
Surrounded by the woodlands where Leonardo Da Vinci once experimented with flight, this cultural sanctuary beckons visitors to explore and engage.
As the sun bathes everything in a heavenly golden glow, guests can indulge in an aperitif amidst the welcoming gardens, savoring the true tranquility found in complete seclusion.
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”So wrote the great Renaissance sculptor Michelangelo, who designed the facade.
In collaboration with Galleria Continua, exhibited are the iconic works of Beijing-based artists Sun Yuan & Peng Yu.
