The Year of Amerigo Vespucci
2012 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Amerigo Vespucci(1454-1512), the Tuscan navigator. A series of events have been organized to celebrate the year of America. One of these was a concert at the Teatro della Pergola, a beautiful historic theater in the heart of Florence. It featured the Pacifica Quartet and had a show of paintings in the foyer. My painting of ‘The Young Architect’ was on display. It was an honor to show along side of a couple of wonderful works by Charles Cecil, a mentor and friend.
Rosanna Cirigliano, an italo-american journalist, not only helped organize the event but shares it in her fantastic blog: Beautiful Florence. Please check out the post here.
