After the first edition’s success, "Aperitivo ad Arte! (Art Aperitif) makes its return with a series of weekly encounters and events in three of Florence’s State museums.
The museums taking part are the Uffizi Gallery (from June 6th), the Bargello Museum (from August 6th), and the Galleria dell'Accademia (from June 5th).
Each aperitivo will take places after the relevant museum’s normal opening hours, and will include some cultural element, along with happy hour within some of the museum’s most charming settings.
The Uffizi happy hour will run every Thurday, 7 PM to 10 PM, until September 26th, and will allow the public to view the Cinquecento (1500s) Rooms – also known as the Red Rooms – that are home to works by Raphael, Bronzino, Allori, Vasari, Andrea Del Sarto, Rosso Fiorentino, and Pontormo. Meanwhile, aperitivo will be offered on the terrace over the Loggia dei Lanzi.
The Galleria dell’Accademia, rather, welcomes cultured imbibers to visit the Galleria dei Prigioni, with the Tribuna del David, and to enjoy happy hour and buffet in the museum’s refined courtyard space.
Finally, August and September will be the Museo Nazionale del Bargello’s time to shine, as it opens up its courtyard, and the Michelangelo, Renaissance and Donatello rooms to those who wish to partake.
