My Art Guide Tuscany first edition
My Art Guide Tuscany marks the addition of an important geographical area to the My Art Guides series; this edition, edited by Lightbox, is curated by the Centro Pecci with the support of the Region of Tuscany. The Tuscany edition also marks the first time a bilingual (English and Italian) My Art Guide has been published. The idea was driven by the desire to explore the contemporary art landscape the Region of Tuscany has to offer.
The guide provides a snapshot of Tuscany’s contemporary art scene, featuring the most stimulating art spaces including museums, galleries and private collections, alongside festivals, residencies, art gardens, land art, public art, and more. My Art Guide Tuscany also accompanies visitors on journey into the discovery of the numerous wineries scattered throughout the region, laboratories and cultural centres per se, firm in the belief that art, especially in this region, can take on multiple forms of expression. True to My Art Guides’ style, a selection of restaurants and hotels are also listed, for each area of interest in which the guide has been divided.
We have sub-divided the Region by areas of interest, rather than by district, giving the visitor scope to explore each area in depth. With this in mind we have outlined eight routes, travelling from north to south: Versilia, Pisa, Lucca and Livorno; Pistoiese and Bassa Valdarno; Chianti, San Gimignano and Volterra; Aretino and Alta Valdarno; Senese and Val d’Orcia; Maremma, the Islands of Elba and Giglio; we have dedicated a whole chapter each to Prato and Florence, as centres of contemporary art in the Region.
My Art Guide Tuscany is the latest addition to the My Art Guides series, the worldwide renowned guides to major contemporary art events and the most relevant destinations in the contemporary art world, published by Lightbox. Each guide is published in three formats – in print, digitally and as an app for iOS and Android.
