An exhibition centered on one of the most significant paintings in the Medici collections, The Allegory of Patience, which holds a complex collectors’ history. Initially attributed to Parmigianino in the inventories of Palazzo Pitti, then catalogued in the museum’s first guides under the name of Francesco Salviati, it was yet later attributed to Girolamo Siciolante by Federico Zeri.
