To Florence from far afield


A highlight for 2017

AWA celebrated its latest Board and International Advisory Council meeting in Florence. From October 12 to 14, 2017, several of our top members visited the Renaissance capital from far afield, coming from New York, Chicago, Alabama, Indiana, Canada and Austria. AWA has become a worldwide phenonmenon! This week full of insights was epitomized by our trip to the storehouses of San Salvi, also known as the Last Supper Museum of Andrea del Sarto. One of Florence's most important deposits, especially for devotional works from the 1500s, it is an incredible example of how ancient palaces and former monasteries in Florence adapt their attics and cellars to respond to their twenty-first century vocation: being museums!
