The globally- acclaimed VGA exhibition makes its way in the beautiful deconsacrated church of Santo Stefano al Ponte located in the heart of Florence near Ponte Vecchio, where outstanding cultural and musical events take place.

The exhibition opened on 16 February 2015 and expresses a new way to experience art: fascinating and educational. It is produced by “Grande Exhibitions” and “Perlage Grandi Eventi”. VGA is a multisensory experience for all the family. Van Gogh’s art comes to life in a vibrant symphony of light, color and sound.

The innovative Sensory 4 system projects over 3,000 high-definition images to create an extraordinary exhibition and offers a journey into the creative and visionary world of the artist: immersing you entirely in his art and tumultuous existence.

Sensory 4 uses a bespoke software system which controls up to 40 high-definition projectors, and a digital surround sound system. Regarded as one of the most exciting multi-projection systems in the world, it projects huge crystal clear images onto an array of screen geometry configured to the deconsecrated church of Santo Stefano al Ponte Vecchio.

Starting from The Netherlands, going through the Impressionism in Paris, and ending in Arles, Saint Remy and Auvers-sur-Oise, where he painted most of his timeless masterpieces, Van Gogh Alive offers visitors a total immersion in his genius and controversal art: from the Potato Eaters to the famous Sunflowers; from Starry Nights to Wheatfield with Crows.

The journey through Van Gogh’s paintings is enriched with the projection of sketches of his art, which enable the spectator to better understand the artistic origin of his work, as well as some verses of his letters which offer a vision of his life, his ideas and his troubled state of mind.

The letters have been collected and published by his sister-in-law, Jo Van Gogh- Bonger. A total of 902 letters addressed to his brother Theo or to his friends, and which are able to tell us, in his own words, his work, his inspirations, his mental illness.

The high-definition projection of the images will transport visitors into Van Gogh’s world immersing them in all the glorious detail of his masterpieces, his extraordinary technique, and his unique and avantgarde , for that time, use of color.

All is synchronised to the music of Handel, Tiersen, Lalo, Delibes, Viseur, Barber, Schubert, Kusturica, Godard, Part, Chabrier, Nielsen, Sakura, Satie, Zorn, Saint-Saens, Liszt, Delibes and Godard.
