Leonardo da Vinci 500th anniversary: exhibitions, events and new books

LEONARDO DA VINCI 500TH ANNIVERSARY: EXHIBITIONS, EVENTS AND NEW BOOKS

Leonardo da Vinci 500th anniversary. It was May 2, 1519 when Amboise died one of the most brilliant minds of humanity, after living a long life and leaving very few works.

After writing the post Works by Leonardo: where the most beautiful works are housed now I’ll tell you what awaits us in 2019 to celebrate this myth of art.
There are many initiatives around the world, from exhibitions to documentaries to books.
In this list you find what I think is most important, but of course in the comments you can report other events that may be interesting for other readers 🙂

TINTORETTO EXHIBITION: VENICE CELEBRATES THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF THE GREAT ARTIST

Tintoretto exhibition in Venice!
A few months ago, as soon as I found out that Venice was preparing to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the birth of Tintoretto with two exhibitions, I soon mentioned the event in the post Exhibitions in Venice 2018: all the unmissable events, and I couldn’t wait for the opening of the exhibition.

In the most gorgeous Venice I’ve ever seen, I immersed myself in two exhibitions illustrating the life of Tintoretto through his most beautiful works.

In this post I’ll tell you what I saw and why to go to Venice to discover Tintoretto.
