Canaletto 1697-1768

Canaletto-mostra

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of his death, the largest group of works of his hand ever exhibited in Italy: 68 paintings, drawings and documents selected for their beauty and importance, which illustrate their thinking and the method, the technique and the relationship with reality.

A great opportunity for Rome, the city where in 1719 the twenty-two year old artist decided to specialize in the view: Rome fascinated him with his temples and ancient stones and, even if he did not return to the Eternal City, the Roman motifs will never abandon his work. A room full of exceptional loans is dedicated to the views of Rome, realized in the years of maturity.
