However, thanks to the strong glass installed earlier to further protect the canvas, it remained intact.
In Italy, environmental activists tried to stick to the canvas Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli. This is reported by Voice of America.
A woman and a man who bought entrance tickets to the Uffizi Gallery in Florence tried to stick their hands to the painting “Spring”. However, thanks to strong glass for additional protection of Botticelli's canvas, the activists' action failed, and the painting remained unharmed.
In particular, Italian environmental activists placed in the hall dedicated to the works of Sandro Botticelli a banner with the inscription “Last generation – no gas , no coal.” They were immediately “torn off” from the picture by the museum's security.
“Spring” and another masterpiece by the Italian artist “The Birth of Venus” are two cult canvases dating from the end of the 15th century. They are among the most popular art gallery in Florence.
