The latest major exhibition event at the Accademia Carrara is another world first.
A pupil of Titian and the master of Caravaggio, Simone Peterzano was a crucial figure in the art of the Renaissance.
In his painting we find Venetian colours and the down-to-earth naturalistic tradition of Lombardy. A legacy that appears overwhelmingly in the work of Caravaggio.
In an exhibition with a wealth of masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and Caravaggio, the rediscovery of Peterzano's work is shown in the setting it deserves – among the greatest names in the history of Italian art.
