Podcast | Donatello in Florence, the Sydney Biennale and the installation grain by Eduardo Navarro
This week, as the Palazzo Strozzi and Museo Nazionale del Bargello in Florence present a study by Donatello, one of the greatest masters of the Italian Renaissance, we chat with Arturo Galansino, General Director of the Strozzi, and Paola D’Agostino , director of the Bargello Museum, on the show.
The Biennale of Sydney in Australia has just opened, on the theme of rīvus, which means stream in Latin. José Roca, artistic director of the Biennale, and Alessandro Pelizzon, co-founder of the World Alliance for the Rights of Nature, discuss the concept of the Biennale, bringing together rivers and other “aquatic beings”, as Roca call them and his fellow Conservatives. with artists, architects, designers, scientists and communities. What does it mean if you grant rights to rivers and other natural forms?
