Attraverso il Novecento. Le collezioni del Museo di Palazzo Davanzati / Through the 20th Century. The collections of the Museum of Palazzo Davanzati
Furniture of the Renaissance house-museum in Florence
The publication of this book on furniture, the second in the series Through the Twentieth Century, after the very first one dedicated to ceramics.
The book comes at a particularly important time for Palazzo Davanzati. It is celebrating the centenary of the 1916 New York auction of the furnishings of Elia Volpi’s private museum, which gave rise to the popularity of the “Davanzati style” overseas and the consolidation of the museum’s international reputation, as well as the sixtieth anniversary of the reopenin of Palazzo Davanzati as a public museum in 1956.
A topographical guide provides in depth information and technical analyses and details the chronological context and provenance of the works on display.
