A Multimedia Show on the Impressionists in Florence
Following the great success of the Da Vinci Experience, the former church of Santo Stefano al Ponte near Ponte Vecchio brings the works of other momentous creators, artist Claude Monet and the Impressionists, to Florence through May 1, 2018 (daily 10 am – 7:30 pm).
In collaboration with the Cross Media Group, the paintings of Impressionists come alive on the interior of Santo Stefano. Projectors project the famous works from Monet, Renoir, Manet, and other significant artists of the period on screens and walls throughout the building. While the significant artworks dance, an expressive soundtrack fitting the mood accompanies each image.
The multimedia exhibition Monet Experience and Impressionists envelops the audience and gives them the remarkable opportunity to observe these masterpieces, even the smallest details. People can immerse themselves into artist’s universe, interpreted through his representation of color, light, and harmony. A prolific painter and founder of the Impressionist movement, Monet sought to express his perception of the world.
Works like Monet’s Impression, Sunrise reveal the artist’s ambitions of depicting nature through his own vision, instead of accurately portraying reality. Using methods of painting that allow him to capture the changes of light and passage of time provide Monet with the opportunity to showcase his impressions of natural world.
With music that supports the emotional features of each work, the audience truly feels as though they temporarily exist in the painting. Being able to walk around and observe different aspects of the work help the participant flow with the exhibition. Tickets are on sale from €13 for adults, and €10 for students or people over 65. Children between the ages of 6 to 12 have an admission price of €8, while children and the disabled under 5 have free entrance.
