From June 15th till September 3rd, 2018. Body armour is far more than protection. Across time and cultures, the highest-quality armour has always been a combination of art, technology and personality. Centring on the exceptional Renaissance arms and armour collection of the Museo Stibbert in Florence, Italy, and enhanced with modern examples, this exhibition highlights many facets of armour, on the battlefield and as sports equipment, status symbol and pop-culture fantasy. An exhibition developed by Contemporanea Progetti in collaboration with the Museo Stibbert (Florence, Italy) and the Canadian War Museum.
