“Matthias Corvinus And Florence. Art and Humanism at the court of Hungary’s King” is currently taking place at Florence’s Biblioteca Monumentale, situated in the Museo Nazionale di San Marco, and is to run until 6 January 2014.
This year is the year of Italian culture in Hungary, and, in return, of Hungarian culture in Italy. The Museo di San Marco has chosen to mark the occasion with an exhibition dedicated to Matthias Corvin, King of Hungary from 1458 to 1490. The show displays Hungarian humanism’s roots in Italy, as well as offering a parallel view of Lorenzo di Medici, aka Laurence the Magnificent, who was a key figure in the development of art and culture during the Florentine Renaissance period.
