The program showcases the painters whose works populate Florentine museums, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Suor Plautilla Nelli, Irene Parenti Duclos and Maria Hadfield Cosway. It also points to the rediscovery and restoration of their works as the guiding force behind rescuing the art of Florence’s forgotten women artists. Discover the “hidden half” of this capital of the arts!
