Magister Giotto: an extraordinary exhibition celebrating the Italian painter


From: To:

Magister Giotto is an exhibition that, after 750 years from this great maestro’s birth, let you get close to the most hidden meanings of his artworks. A synergy of words, music, and images in an unprecedented multimedia exhibit. A unique occasion, that Venice couldn’t miss. In fact, the appointment is at Scuola Grande Della Misericordia, from July 13 to November 5.

Light and color. Landscapes and faces. Simplicity and naturalism. And above all, a lot of details you’ve never seen so closely: from the first kiss in the history of art to the Halley’s Comet. Magister Giotto presents an accurate, meticulous and almost magic multimedia journey, that winds through impressive spaces, scenographic reconstructions, illusionary visions thank technology. Art is enhanced by technology, which gives all visitors the chance of living an unprecedented experience.

A touching 45-minute account will accompany you during the visit. Music, words and suggestive images tell about Giotto’s revolution, thanks to Luca Zingaretti’s voice and Paolo Fresu’s exclusive soundtrack too.

the stories of St. Francis’, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, the majestic crucifixes and the other works the artist made in Florence are the base of the narration, which ends with the Giotto Mission in 1986, organized by the European Space Agency. That was the first time the Halley’s Comet was intercepted. The same comet Giotto painted in the Adoration of the Magi, in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua.
