Lusso ed Eleganza

French porcelain at Pitti Palace, and Ginori’s Manufacture

Elisa Baciocchi, Napoleon’s sister, played a major role in the diffusion of the art, and her patronage supported industrial production as well as Florentine craftsmanship. She boasted the manufacturing of porcelain and silk. Amongst all, Ginori was one to accept the revolutionary production techniques from France, and its sophisticated style. Several artists were invited in Florence, including Jean David, Joseph De Germain e Abraham Constantin. The exhibition gathers over 120 pieces, from Italian and French museums, and some private collections.
