Florence and the Uffizi Gallery

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 21 November - 29 November 2015

A journey into timeless beauty.

A filmed tour of the city that was once the cradle of the Renaissance – and of its Museum par excellence – Florence and the Uffizi Gallery uses the most advanced 2K technologies (including aerial shots, complex long takes and cutting-edge dimensionalization techniques) to ensure a totally immersive and unique experience and allow the audience to see, listen, feel and savour the most outstanding and celebrated breeding ground of creativity in the history of art.

Explore and discover the city of Florence, artistic home to legendary figures like Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Raphael, Leonardo and Botticelli, with a detailed, central chapter dedicated to the very treasure house containing their masterpieces: the Uffizi Gallery. The ‘secret story’ of each of the timeless works of art in the gallery will be disclosed in all its beauty, including the breathtaking “Adoration of the Magi” by Leonardo Da Vinci, which will be brought back to life in 2016, after several years of restoration, and here unveiled in worldwide exclusive premier on the big screen. Moreover, a fascinating, Gothic-flavoured interlude will display much darker, more monstrous and frightening paintings, such as those by Caravaggio.

Art plays the leading role in the film, thanks to the moving narration provided by the mastermind of the Italian Renaissance, Lorenzo the Magnificent, played by Simon Merrells (Spartacus) and authoritative contributions from the main international expert in Renaissance art Arturo Galansino (curator of the Royal Academy in London and newly appointed director of the Strozzi Foundation in Florence) who signed the academic, artistic and scientific supervision of the script, and Antonio Natali, director of the Uffizi, who will welcome us inside the Gallery and will detail the key works.

Florence and the Uffizi Gallery will screen in 2D/2K.
