Scuderie del Quirinale

The exhibition is curated by Eugenio La Rocca with Serena Ensoli, Stefano Tortorella and Massimiliano Papinim. It features large frescoes, refined portraits on wood, decorations and friezes that represent the wonders of ancient art: landscapes, still life paintings, scenography, portraits and the interpretation of myths in the Roman tradition. About 100 works are displayed in five different sections that reconstruct the development of modern pictorial genres. All works were borrowed from some of the most important archaeological sites and museums in the world, including the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, as well as the archaeological museums in Munich, Frankfurt and Zurich.
