GUIDED TOUR – The visit will be conducted exceptionally by Costanza Riva of Firenze Alchemica’s research team.
The secret alchemy of Boboli’s Grotta Grande
The Hermetic Doctrine has seen in the “cave” the forge and the laboratory where secret alchemical operations can be carried out, and has veiled those experiences behind archaic-mythological figures, paintings or allegorical representations related to the “art” of metals and precious stones. For the Hermetic Philosophers, entering a cave is the equivalent of experiencing a journey inside one’s soul, discovering its most hidden ravines, facing the most difficult struggles and then arriving at its true wealth: the “divine sealed inside us”.
