Under the Stars of Giotto

Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 686 Park Avenue, NY
Monday through Friday 10AM to 4PM – Saturday and Sunday 11AM to 4PM


Giotto was the painter who transformed Western art.

Giotto was able to blend realism and spirituality, man and the divine.

From November 14, 2023 at the New York Cultural Institute, visitors will be able to enter Giotto’s masterpiece, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, through a virtual immersive experience.

A scanning campaign conducted in the summer of 2023 made it possible to recreate in detail both the Scrovegni Chapel and its crypt, which is usually not accessible. The technology used is Italian and belongs to a cutting-edge company: Hidonix. Tickets: general entry: $16 – children $8, senior $12.

A precious authentic panel from the fourteenth century, with an angel by Guariento, will testify to Giotto’s influence on court painting.

Explanatory panels will tell how Giotto’s painting inspired the extraordinary cycles of fourteenth-century frescoes thanks for which “Padua – Urbs picta” was recognized as a UNESCO site.

A photographic exhibition by Francesca Magnani “Padua Postcards” will give visitors the emotion of the human context in which the works of Giotto and Guariento are inserted.

Moroso’s furnishings will create an evocative bridge between the past and present of Italian creativity.

The installation in progress by Ozmo – one of the most important representatives of Italian street art – will dialogue with a memory that has nourished our future for centuries.
