XIV edition of “Artour-O il MUST” FIRENZE 2018
“Artour-O il MUST” is back in Florence, is more than an exhibition: it is an italian project born in 2005 to bring our contemporary art around the world; placing the figure of the artist in dialogue with the client, allowing to recreate a way of living “made in Italy”, bringing the art back to “the house”, its natural bed. Visitors are invited to enter an environment where art, design, architecture, beauty, music, fashion and food are the undisputed protagonists. Florence is the first location of this two annual appointments, while in October / November, the project flies to foreign cities.
Late November Artour-O was at Madeira, in Portugal, where it was very successful. In March, from 14 to 17, Artour-O returns to Florence for its 14th edition.
