From Caravaggio to Bernini
Masterpieces of the Italian Seicento from the Spanish Royal Collection at Scuderie del Quirinale
Through a remarkable selection of paintings and sculptures, the exhibition ‘From Caravaggio to Bernini. Masterpieces of the Italian Seicento from the Spanish Royal Collection’ reflects the close political links and cultural strategies established by the Spanish court and the Italian states over the course of the 17th century.
The art collections of the Hapsburg dynasty were enriched by the frequent diplomatic gifts from Italian rulers striving to earn the favour of the Spanish overlords, who with their domains conditioned the development of the complex political situation in Italy from the mid-16th century onwards.
A large number of well know artworks are included in this amazing selection, part of the remarkable collection under the protection of the Patrimonio Nacional, the Spanish Royal Collection.
The masterpieces presented in Rome have been selected on the basis of their outstanding artistic and historical value.
The Exhibition will be open until 30th July 2017
