A day in Pisa

Processed with VSCO with x1 presetWhile thinking of Pisa everyone immediately thinks of the leaning tower. Last week, Scuola Toscana offered an activity to go on an adventure on saturday morning, namely to Pisa. We all took the train and drove to Pisa for approximately one hour. After that, Maria, a school’s professor took us to all the important and interesting places of Pisa. We saw different works of art and learned a lot about the history of Pisa. Maria gave us also different kind of tips for restaurants, bars and places to visit. We walked all together to the famous Piazza dei Miracoli where we all admired the worldwide well-known leaning tower of Pisa. Afterwards we all could choose whatever we wanted to do and got time for some shopping and to visit one or the other museum. It was a very funny and instructive adventure that we all won’t forget. Thanks to Scuola Toscana we got the possibility to see an other place, to visit it and to live it.

A night in a museum – Palazzo Vecchio

Everyday Scuola Toscana offers interesting and exciting activities led by a distinguished staff. On the 21st of May, Caterina, a school’s professor, brought some of us students to the fascinating and wonderful Palazzo Vecchio in Piazza Signoria, which is the town hall of Florence. The tour started at 8 o’clock in the evening, and everyone waited excitedly in front of this huge palace. When standing in front of this building, I felt like being minuscule and the palace had a very powerful effect on me. We started in the famous and universally known room – Salone dei Cinquecento, the most imposing chamber of the palace. This room was featured by the sublime Giorgio Vasari on behalf of Grand Duke Cosimo I, who wanted it as seat of the Grand Council consisting of 500 members. Inside this chamber you can find hundreds of paintings and statues, among others also from Michelangelo. The rest of the palace served as residence for Duke Cosimo and his large family. The Palazzo Vecchio reveals a lot of secrets and mysteries when being there. It is a very amazing and wonderful palace, that for sure is worth a visit. These days, the palace serves as museum and as seat of the mayor of Florence. Visiting a museum by night is an unforgettable adventure and has even a bigger impact than by day. Once in your lifetime you must have experienced such a thing.

Scuola Toscana auf Entdeckungsreise im Haus Buonarroti

Wenn man an Florenz denkt, denkt man autmoatisch an den allbekannten Michelangelo, an seinen David, seine Gemälden und Skulpturen. Jedoch gibt es nur wenige, die das Museum “Casa Buonarroti” kennen. Eines der ausschlaggebendsden und interessantesten Museen in Florenz. Einige stellen sich jetzt klarerweisse die Frage, was dieses Museum wohl so Besonderes beinhaltet? Casa Buonarroti ist tatsächlich das ehemalige Haus des bezaubernden Künstlers Michelangelo Buonarroti. Ein Teil dieses Hauses wurde von seinem Urenkel in ein Museum verwandelt, welches natürlich Michelangelo gewidmet ist. Es beinhaltet zahlreiche Skulpturen und Werke von Michelangelo aber auch einige seines Urenkels und anderer bekannter Künstlern, wie zum Beispiel Werke von Artemisia Gentilleschi. Einer der Räume ist besonders und wird auch oft als Schatztruhe von Casa Buonarotti bezeichnet wird. Er beinhaltet zwei Marmorreliefs welche aus dem Jahr 1492 stammen. Diese waren Michelangelos ersten Werke, die er im Alter von 16 und 17 Jahren schuf. Eines dieser Werke, Madonna della Scala, war das allererste Werk Michelangelos und stellt die Jungfrau Maria mit Jesus als Neugeborenen dar. Das besondere daran ist, dass Michelangelo ,in seinem ersten Werk, Jesus als Neugeborenen darstellt . Hingegen stellt Michelangelo, in seinem letzten Werk, den Tot Jesus, als Pietà, dar. Dieses könnte den Lauf des Lebens darstellen, welcher auch auf das Leben Michelangelos übertragbar ist. Somit fängt Michelangelo in seinen ersten Kunstwerken mit Jesus als Neugeborenen an und hört am Ende seines Lebens mit dem Tod Jesus auf. Kommen auch Sie nach Florenz und begeben sich auf die geheimnissvollen Spuren Michelangelos, und lassen sich verzaubern von seinen beeindruckenden Kunstwerken.
