The Macchiaoli: Painters, Rebels or Madmen

Join us for a very special event on October 11 at the James Ward Mansion in Westfield. Giovanna Giusti, former Director of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, will discuss the Macchiaoli art movement and how it came to life at a challenging historical time period which precedes the birth of Italy as one united country. The movement originated with a small group of artists, many of whom had been revolutionaries in the uprising of 1848 which led to the formation of Italy as one political entity.
