Dame Patsy opens The Corsini Collection: A Window on Renaissance Florence

Tonight Dame Patsy and Sir David attended the opening of The Corsini Collection: A Window on Renaissance Florence at the Auckland Art Gallery. This stunning exhibition of art from the private collection of the Corsini family features priceless artworks, by Botticelli, Tintoretto and many others, that have never been exhibited outside Italy before. There's also a portrait of the family saint that still has the bullet holes from German soldiers who raided the family villa in 1944.
