Ceiling in the Ufizzi

Zoe’s first visit to the Ufizzi

Life imitates art # 3

Davide

In between the Uffizi and Davide, we went to a video art show by Bill Viola, a video artist and colleague of Marina’s, in Palazzo Strozzi. It was so interesting, and the movement in each presentation was mainly in slow motion. It really tested your patience so that it was almost uncomfortable, butbin a good way. He also uses lots of water elements, and each presentation was juxtaposed to a piece of classic art which inspired it. http://www.palazzostrozzi.org/mostre/bill-viola/?lang=en

      Andiamo 7.3 miles ieri e 28 piani! Abbiamo visto due musei e una mostra. Abbiamo cenato al Ristorante Coquinarius cui Vance e Laura hanno consigliato. Tutto bello!
