For the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, the Uffizi Galleries and the Fondazione CR Firenze are launching a major project to enhance the artistic heritage of the region by organizing five exhibitions within the territory. The exhibition in question will take place from August 12 to January 6, 2022 at the Museum of the Battle of Anghiari.

The exhibition highlights the relationships between the city and the suburbs during the Renaissance, ideally linked to the guiding idea of the Uffizi diffusi project. In particular, during the Renaissance, the city of Anghiari supplied men of arms who were loyal to various armies of noble cities whose nobility was related to that of Anghiari. They were not, therefore, people who lived off the profession of arms, but a real notables who also knew the propaganda value of works of art and were interested in the artists of their time.

The exhibition is therefore centered on historical characters tied to Anghiari who were committed to transforming themselves from knights and soldiers into men of court and culture. The attention is focused in particular on the ties with the Montefeltro of Urbino. Also recalled are the translations into figures of the battle of Anghiari, which continued until dates far removed from the historical one of the battle.
