The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The #loveproject arrives in Siena

The Love Project in the cradle of the Renaissance - The plan is to place two paintings in five of the most important piazzas of Tuscany’s five most important cities: Florence, Siena, Livorno, Pisa and Lucca. Anyone who wants them can take them away, at no cost. Absolutely free.

The venue was not a gallery in Barga or Lucca, […]
