Donatello, David, 1430s, bronze, Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence. Web Gallery of Art.

From 19 March, 2022, visitors to Florence will be able to attend a “once-in-a-lifetime” exhibition showcasing “the outstanding career of one of the most important and influential masters of Italian art of any age” – Donato di Niccolò di Betto Bardi, otherwise known as Donatello. The exhibition intends to place Donatello’s works alongside the output of other Italian Renaissance masters, such as Brunelleschi, Masaccio, Andrea Mantegna, Giovanni Bellini, Raphael and Michelangelo.

The Palazzo Strozzi website reveals that the exhibition will be curated by Francesco Caglioti and was “devised as a single exhibition in two venues, Palazzo Strozzi and the Museo Nazionale del Bargello… designed to celebrate Donatello in dialogue with institutions of Florence and indeed the whole of Italy, in addition to crucial international cooperation, in an effort to expand the debate on this master both in time and in space, in terms of materials, techniques and genres, in order finally to do justice to the artist’s universal dimension.”

  1. Hi Frank,

    There is a ticket required for this event, although it appears that you can purchase on the day. I come to this conclusion as the website says to “buy your ticket online… save your time and skip the line.” Hope this helps.
