News from Italy that Pontormo's celebrated The Visitation will be temporarily rehoused in the Villa Medici in Poggio a Caiano. This is due to its usual home, the church of San Michele e San Francesco in Carmignano, requiring urgent roof repairs. Fortunately, the painting will be in good company as the Villa Medici happens to contain frescos by the artist.
