Forte di Belvedere: Florence exhibition

Join Joe Kitchen, from our Image Archive, in the Out of the Block exhibition to hear more about Moore's impressive 1972 Florence exhibition.

The 1972 retrospective exhibition in Florence was the climax of Moore’s career, with 345,000 visitors coming to see the 289 works on show.  Learn about the challenges of putting together such a large show – and how a 180-tonne marble sculpture, Large Square Form with Cut, was installed on the ramparts of the Forte di Belvedere.

The talk is included in your Studios & Gardens admission ticket. Please register your interest at the ticket desk when you arrive.
