Mindful Hands. Masterpieces of Illumination from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini
"Mindful Hands" (from 17th September) will feature 120 illuminated pages and initials - plus a group of particularly fine illuminated codices - from the most important collections of miniatures worldwide, acquired by Count Vittorio Cini from the Libreria Antiquaria Hoepli in Milan in 1939-1940 and presented to the Foundation in 1962.
But Mindful Hands is much more than a straightforward display of exhibits.
An integral part of the project has been the collaboration with Adam Lowe’s
Factum Arte, experts on digital techniques applied to the conservation,
reproduction and interpretation of works of art. Digital media organised in a
thoroughgoing art installation will highlight and "translate" this
extraordinary heritage in a modern key.
