SOLO MUSEUM EXHIBITION
THE MEDICI PALACE OF SERAVEZZA
OPENS JULY 20TH, 2019
Built in the 1560s by Cosimo I Medici, the Palazzo Mediceo di Seravezza was used as a residence for the Medici family when they were visiting the nearby marble quarries in Carrara and Pietrasanta.
The palace has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage site and has housed the Museum since 1996.
Seravezza is a riverside town in Lucca nestled in the Apuan Alps. Initially established as a mining town for iron, Seravezza soon became recognized as a site for sculptors because of the nearby marble quarries.
The Medici Palace is visible in the second image across the river from the town center.
The city of Pietrasanta draws international artists and art enthusiasts for its galleries and public works. In recent decades, the city has become something of an open-air museum through its exhibition of sculptural works in its many piazzas.
The centuries-old tradition of marble working finds new life in both classical and contemporary marble work throughout the city.
FORTE DEI MARMI
Forte dei Marmi is a nearby seaside town that draws visitors for its gorgeous beaches and coastal views, as well as for its accommodations and shopping. Every Sunday, Forte hosts a sprawling market featuring vendors with local goods and food.
Carrara is known internationally as one of the marble working capitals of the world. Carved from the Alps, the town is recognized for its breathtaking marble quarries and caves.
Visitors to Carrara come to explore the caves, hike through the quarries, and tour the many artist studios that are based in the town.
