Fifty years after the memorable exhibition at the Forte di Belvedere in 1972, Henry Moore returns to Florence.

Following the 2021 exhibitions Henry Moore. Il Disegno dello scultore and Henry Moore in Toscana, the Henry Moore Foundation has again partnered with Museo Novecento and BIAF (International Biennial of Antiques in Florence) to bring two Moore sculptures to the city.

Large Interior Form and Family Group will be exhibited in two symbolic places in the city: Piazza della Signoria and, in an exceptional case, in the churchyard of the Abbey of San Miniato al Monte, to interact with the historical and artistic heritage of Florence.

Curated by Sebastiano Barassi (Head of Collections & Programmes, Henry Moore Foundation) and Sergio Risaliti (Director of the Museo Novecento).
