Tutto Toscana: Fragments of Tuscany

By Marie Glaser and Veronica Faria

Students of the Art and Places: from Renaissance Florence to Contemporary Metropolis class had a final pre-NYC encounter with artist Lorenzo Brini to preview his artwork for the upcoming TuttoToscana aperitivo in NYC.

Everything is set for TuttoToscana’s Fragments of Tuscany including Lorenzo Brini’s artwork. Brini is the solo artist being featured in the 2017 edition of TuttoToscana in New York City. Brini’s artwork will be exhibited during the TuttoToscana aperitivo event at a private showing hosted by Katie Rosenberg.

Lorenzo Brini’s work embodies a series of drawings that connect with many thoughts about the culture and landscapes of Tuscany. When observing his work viewers will find a plethora of bits and pieces of this wonderful Italian region; including symbols and icons which are connected in some way. On the other hand, some of the marks and images true meaning may only be understood by Brini himself.

Lorenzo Brini delighted the FUA Art and Places class in Florence with a preview of the live performance he will be giving during the art show and aperitivo in NYC. After the meeting with Brini, the class experienced another piece of contemporary art in Florence: the exibition Structural Tensions curated by Angel Moya Garcia, whom they met at the Edoardo Secci art Gallery for an illuminating tour.

The TuttoToscana Fragments of Tuscany art show and aperitivo will be on Saturday, October 28 and will managed by the students and faculty of Apicius, the hospitality division at FUA.
