I love learning about Italian businesses that use the arts for a cause. What better way to draw attention to wind energy than with windmills right?! That’s exactly what Simone d’Auria did. Each year, since 2013 he has done a new art installation at the Lungarno Collection at Florence’s Gallery Art Hotel. It’s normal to see art in a hotel, maybe it’s lobby and a little in the rooms and suites, but nothing will ever come close to the “WOW” exhibit at the Gallery Art Hotel.
The “WOW” Experience
I know so many of you travel overseas and some even go to Florence, I urge you to check out this exhibit! It’s free of charge! There is so much to see and do in Firenze as it is, so why not add the “WOW” exhibit to your adventure too?! What makes this exhibit even more exciting, is that it’s not just a visual experience but also a sensorial one. The Windmill experience is everywhere, from the gallery to the bar to the restaurant! Experiencing art, in my opinion is even better than seeing it. (Think Blue Man Group) The experience is everywhere, from the outside of the hotel building to the kitchen and suites!
Nothing is more exciting than knowing that you are in a luxurious setting surrounded by local art and whispers for a cause that matters. With the Lungarno Collection at Florence’s Gallery Art Hotel you will experience the old and the new together and simultaneously. Contemporary Art and Fusion Meals complete the exhibit and the experience. You can learn more about the exhibit and the hotel by visiting the Lungarno Collection Website.
If you’re traveling to Italy this year, know that the exhibit will be open until December 31, 2016. So make a stop up north to Firenze and check out this exhibit and luxury hotel, just be sure not to miss it if your wanderlust takes you there!
