Searching for the Contemporary

The goal of LPD’s project “Mapping Contemporary Florence” is to find contemporary art in Florence and provide a resource for others to expand their cultural experience in the city beyond the Renaissance.

We want to Expand, and we want YOU to help.

Interested in Contemporary Art? A great way to stay updated on events in Florence, submit your own work and see snapshots of Contemporary Florence is to follow the blog.
