An exhibition-event focused on the link between Antonio Canova and the city of Rome, with over 170 works and prestigious loans from important museums and Italian and foreign collections.
Framed within an installation of great visual impact, over 170 works by Canova and some contemporary artists enliven the rooms of the Museum of Rome in Palazzo Braschi. The exhibition tells in 13 sections Canovian art and the context that the sculptor found when he arrived in the city in 1779.
Through sophisticated lighting solutions, the warm atmosphere of torchlight is recalled along the exhibition route, with which the artist, at the end of the eighteenth century, showed his works to the guests, at night, in the atelier in Via delle Colonnette.
