House of Secrets: The Many Lives of a Florentine Palazzo, by Allison Levy
Welcome to Museum Reads, the Newport Art Museum’s Art-Themed book group for adults. It’s the same beloved Read/Eat/Chat book group format, with a fresh name. Join us!
House of Secrets tells the remarkable story of Palazzo Rucellai from behind its celebrated facade. The story begins in the fifteenth century and continues to the present, when the author, an art historian, serendipitously discovers a room for let in the palazzo, landing her in the vortex of history. This scholarly thriller takes us on a tour of the palazzo, the city of Florence and the lives and drama of the people who lived there.
We are pleased to announce that author Allison Levy will join our conversation.
This month’s Museum Reads will be delivered virtually on Zoom. Link will be sent directly to registrants, so be sure to register in advance!
