“Views from around the world” narrates the meetings of different cultures at the Uffizi Galleries. The project is an opportunity to compare perspectives from several countries, a step towards building an intercultural dialogue.
“Views from around the world” discloses feelings, thoughts and memories originated from the encounter between art and people of different cultures, suggesting singular perceptions, enriching the cultural heritage and promoting an intercultural exchange.
With the purpose of fostering the social role of the museum, this project is the result of a research that involved local associations and citizens of different backgrounds.
People from different cultures offer their point of view, sharing a different way of seeing and experiencing the museum and its heritage.
