In honour of our teacher Signorina Nera Simi (1890-1897) who taught classical art in Florence for nearly half a century, her students will hold a second exhibition of their art works in Cardoso in The Apuan Alps, Tuscany.
There will also be presented unpublished paintings by Nera Simi which the Simi students have located and the owners have kindly lent for this exhibition.
After 16:00 there will be the unveiling of the marble bust of Nera Simi.
This has been commissioned by the Simi Students and carved in white marble by a former student Fred Brownstein. The bust will be a gift to the people of Stazzema where the Signorina was born.
Donations are still being received for the creation of the bust. If anyone would like to donate, however small a sum please to contact me for details: email@example.com
There is also a hardback catalogue of the show which costs €20:
