Museum of San Marco Firenze
'Other gazes' is a book series curated by art historian Maura Picciau that explores Italy’s lesser-known museums and places through the eyes of great photographers and the words of writers and critics, and rediscover the Italian artistic heritage with other gazes. Luca Capuano introduces us to one of Italy’s most unique and peculiar museums: the Museum of San Marco in Florence. Ante figuram is the result of a long and thoughtful investigation of the museum’s spaces, its history and the other places that preserve the story of history, such as photographic archives. With her precise words, Melania G. Mazzucco takes us on a tour of the colours of Fra Angelico and the silences of the monastic cells he painted, and Alessandro Carrer dialogues with Capuano’s photographic work in a dynamic exegesis.
