Menarini and Art: tradition and innovation
Art monographs, specialist magazines dedicated to the great masters and more. Today, with ‘Pills of Art’, Menarini enters the city’s museums to reveal some of the curious facts on the works of the most well-known Renaissance painters. An initiative which confirms the company’s affiliation with art, a close connection which has led them to publish, each year and for more than six decades, an art monograph dedicated to the great masters of artistic beauty: a tradition which dates back to 1956 and which has continue and evolved over time, right up to today.
In this section, through a series of short videos, we shall take a trip through the history of our art publications, sharing anecdotes on some of the most famous works which have been, or shall become, the topic of volumes to come. Our exceptional guide on this ‘adventure’ will be the Director of the Uffizi Galleries, Eike Schmidt.
"Per far apprezzare i capolavori dei grandi maestri dell'arte italiana come Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Giotto o Vasari in tutto il mondo, specialmente nei 136 paesi in cui è presente il Gruppo Menarini - ha detto Valeria Speroni Cardi, Direttore Corporate Press & Media Relations Menarini - le video pillole, realizzate ora in italiano e in inglese, saranno a breve sottotitolate anche in altre lingue, tra cui cinese, russo, spagnolo e tedesco"
