Those who will be available next Friday afternoon and would like to spend some peaceful moments in a museum could gather together to enjoy some art and maybe some coffee chat later.

*If you can't make it on a working day but are also very interested in this exhibition, just FYI the entrance fee is 120CNY on weekends and CNY150 on public holidays. It will finish on December 23rd, Protected content . You could make your own schedule to visit it. Have fun and see you soon!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Protected content

This year marks the 47th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Italy, and it also witnesses substantial extension of the “One Belt One Road” strategy. Under such a background, to bring an exhibition featuring the collection covering a time span of more than six centuries from Italy to Shanghai, to China, seems all the more important and meaningful. More than an exhibition of art, it is also an occasion for profound cultural exchanges.

Curated by Dr. Luigi Bellini, director of the Bellini Museum and the 21st-generation successor of the Bellini Family, and Shen Qibin, founding director and chairman of the board of the Shanghai Himalayas Museum, this exhibition will feature Protected content of art from the Renaissance onward, including paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, furniture, decorations, tapestries and tableware as well as crowns from noble families.

Other than the presentation of artworks and treasures, the exhibition, by the use of new media and AR technologies, will “re-create” the Bellini Museum in Shanghai, offering audience a chance to vividly experience the culture and life scenes of the Florentine during the Renaissance.

At the same time, an “exhibition-within-exhibition” entitled Myth and Rivalry: Leonardo Da Vinci with Michelangelo and Raphael, which is curated by Alessandro Vezzosi, director of the Museo Ideale Leonardo Da Vinci, will be presented in line with Miracle: the Bellini Family and the Renaissance.
