On Saturday, November 18th at 6pm, there will be an extraordinary opening and guided tour of the birthplace of Amedeo Modigliani.
The birthplace of Amedeo Modigliani is located on the first floor of a mid-19th century building at Via Roma, 38, and preserves the charm of 19th century homes in Italy after the Unification. The Modigliani family, a typical bourgeois Jewish family of the 19th century, very educated, secular, and fascinated by emerging socialist ideas, owned the entire building with an internal garden, a noble floor, a first floor with rooms and attics, but the museum house unfolds in the drawing rooms and small sitting rooms of the noble floor, which, thanks to the owners, has remained intact, with its floral and geometric cement tiles, thin glass windows, and Livorno-style shutters. Here, time has stood still and accompanies visitors on an emotional journey: a sudden noise, a slamming door, and everyone turns around, as if the young Dedo and his older brothers were there. During the visit, the life of Amedeo is retraced from his troubled birth, with the official judicial officer coming to seize valuable objects and gold, silver, and the sewing machine piled up under the table, to his educational and artistic upbringing: the Gymnasium, the Micheli school, the Academy of Florence, and eventually the Colarossi school in Paris. At the end of the visit, those who wish can enjoy an absinthe served in the style of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, with a flambéed sugar cube and cold water. The tour costs 10 euros per person.
