From Florence with love

For the first time ever you can see some of the best religious masterpieces from Florences's world-famous Uffizi Gallery right here, in Barcelona.
"El pa dels angels" (Angels bread) is made up of 45 pictures including biblical scenes immortalized by Botticceli, Luca Signorelli, Parmigianino, Luca Giurdano and other of the greatest XV, XVI and XVII century masters.
The extraordinary collection of religious art takes you an emotional, trascendental tour of Christian spirituality. Through the eyes of some history's greatest painters you revisit original sin, the annunciation, the last supper, the crucifixion and resurrection. And you follow 300 years of artistic innovation.
Caixa Forum, in colaboration with the Uffizi, will show "El pa dels Angels" until february 8th 2009. And it's completely free.
