Review of Casa Di Giotto

Casa Di Giotto
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Near a small place Vicchio , Colle di Vespignano hamlet , 35 km north of Florence , is a farmhouse on a hill . Traditionally opinion is that this birthplace of Giotto , the famous painter and architect of the late Middle Ages , the Renaissance predecessors . Today there is a museum dedicated in his honor . First experiencing a stylish display with parts of his works . A couple of steps on the floor , there is a room , paint workshop for children . Next is a room with a huge projection of his meals on three walls , explanations in several languages ​​( choose your own). His work is the bell tower of the Bell Tower in Florence and a fresco in the church of Santa Maria Novella, just across from the main railway station . Pictures reflect the first signs of perspective , full of bright colors , the characters more human than saint . House jeizgrađena in traditional Tuscan style . Through the windows , the view stretches of rolling hills , vineyards , fruit trees and grass . After visiting the museum , we went to lunch at the so-called Sagginale . This Sunday's event is popular all over the Mugello (agricultural , livestock region north of Florence ) . It is held each time in a different place . We were in a tent with lots of benches . Locals preparing themselves and share local food . The food was delicious and very cheap. Otherwise , profits went to benefit the local football club .

We were randomly exploring the area (actually hoping we were going to stumble on an open winery...but that aside), saw the sign and went inside. There was a visiting artist showing when we visited; it is a lovely venue for an art show. The slide show/presentation on Giotto told the story of his life and his art, it may have been a bit schmaltzy or simple for those that are familiar with the story: but it brought us up to speed!
