The Pazzi Chapel and Women of the Flood

AWA brings the ‘Flood Ladies’ story to Santa Croce during summer seminar. ‘Women in the Art World and the Flood of 1966’ was a commemorative event hosted in Santa Croce’s stunning Pazzi Chapel, spotlighting the role of women in ‘restoring Florence and its art’ after the city’s 1966 flood. Speakers included AWA Director, Linda Falcone, conservators Elisabeth Wicks and Nicoletta Fontani, President of the Accademia dell’Arte del Disegno, Cristina Acidini and journalist Laura Lodigiani. The event (June 2016) was organized by the Professional Women’s Committee of the Tuscan-American Association.
