Of Hate and Love. An exhibition at the Uffizi investigates the relationship between Giorgio Vasari and his contemporary artists from beyond the Apennines


From October 9, 2018 to December 2, 2019, the Uffizi Drawings and Prints Cabinet welcomes the exhibition D'odio e d'amore- Giorgio Vasari and the artists in Bologna.

The Edoardo Detti Room of the Gabinetto dei Disegni e delle Stampe of the Uffizi Galleries is hosting the exhibition"D’odio e d’amore - Giorgio Vasari e gli artisti a Bologna" from October 9, 2018 to December 2, 2019.
An exhibition that aims to investigate the relationship between Giorgio Vasari, an artist and historiographer from Arezzo, and the artists contemporary with him frombeyond the Apennines.

Through a careful selection of drawings and paintings, most of which come from the Uffizi collections, Vasari’s judgments, sometimes fierce and sometimes enthusiastic, “of hate and love,” toward other artists who lived in the same era as him are thus analyzed. The exhibition thus features works by other artists, such as Parmigianino and Prospero Fontana, who were the object of Vasari’s attentions.

This is an exhibition with an unprecedented intellectual discourse that starts from the text of Vasari’s Lives.

The director of the Uffizi Galleries, Eike Schmidt, said, “The exhibition boldly tackles a sophisticated and rare theme, guiding the visitor’s gaze through paintings and drawings, in a game of cross-references between text and image. It is the fruit of years of study by the curators on Vasari’s writings and works, with unpublished results and discoveries that reveal the Uffizi Galleries’ deep vocation for research and their educational mission, at the highest level.”

D’odio e d’amore - Giorgio Vasari and the Artists in Bologna is curated by Marzia Faietti and Michele Grasso.
