Ancient documents and modern paintings to relive past emotions The exhibition includes vineyards face of ancient maps that show typical views o f the old town and modern paintings that have to prepare for the unexpected visi tor. Rodolfo Marma, Florentine painter of the '900, with his paintings shows us a cit y, Florence, live in his daily life: a populous city, the carts and markets, the humble people, maybe a little 'boorish', as Florence used to say, but frank and

honest. Stock cards are able to offer Ie same view of an ancient city, Pistoia, in his e veryday life, marked by the hall of shops and people, equally humble, perfectly identified with the spirit of citra. expressing the mood more vibrant. The comparison between these "art" shows a close parallel between two cities, ed ucated in an age very far apart, and reviving past atmospheres, evoking heartfel t emotion.
