The Strozzina, Centro di Cultura Contemporanea at Palazzo Strozzi, is hosting the “Portraits and Power: People, Politics and Structures” exhibition until Jan. 23, 2011. The exhibit analyzes power as an expression of the charisma of those individuals who have become icons or symbols of their age. It probes the power of institutions and social models that either represent themselves or are represented in a critical light, and investigates the hidden mechanisms of powerful authorities.
