The itinerary finds its main nuclei in the reconstruction of the relationship between Hayez and Verdi based on the sharing of very popular themes such as I due Foscari , I Lombardi alla prima crusade and I Vespri Siciliani and so also in the series of paintings dedicated to tragic characters, such as Maria Stuarda, Anna Bolena, Caterina Cornaro, Marin Faliero, have become familiar due to their musical reworking by Donizetti from Bergamo and the frequency with which they appear, throughout Europe, precisely in painting.

Thanks to a scenographic display full of multimedia contributions, the exhibition will take you to discover the heroes and themes of Italian melodrama, restoring the likenesses of those who were the protagonists of this extraordinary world.
