Palazzo Pitti, the Medici Treasure: The secret Alchemies in the Giovanni da San Giovanni room and the magic of semi-precious stones

Palazzo Pitti simboli e alchimie nella Sala di Giovanni da San Giovanni 

CANCELED – following the new Prime Ministerial Decree, we were sadly forced to cancel the event.

Palazzo Pitti, the Medici family’s treasure: The secret Alchemies in the Giovanni da San Giovanni room and the magic of semi-precious stones

At Palazzo Pitti, in the first room of the current Medici Treasury Museum, an airy “imaginary loggia” appears which ideally connects that room to the Boboli Gardens.

It was Ferdinando II de ‘Medici who commissioned it to the painter Giovanni da San Giovanni to magnify and immortalize his marriage to Vittoria della Rovere.

Those masterful architectural fantasies hide an unimaginable fabric of symbols and allegories: an alchemical, historical and sapiential path that is fascinating due to its surprising originality, waiting to be revealed.

The visit will also continue inside the Medici Treasury Museum with the symbolic explanation of the precious Medici collection of semi-precious stones and jewels.

Please note that masks are mandatory!
