The show

Paintings "never seen before" by the de Vito Foundation together with the most evocative seventeenth-century canvases of the Palazzo Pretorio Museum give life to an exhibition itinerary that aims to tell the determined impact of Caravaggio 's painting on the artists of the Neapolitan school in the seventeenth century through a choice of works from the two collections.

The exhibition, organized by the Municipality of Prato in collaboration with the De Vito Foundation and curated by Rita Iacopino and Nadia Bastogi, presents a small number of paintings, but of great quality, and is organized around some of the most important personalities of the art scene Neapolitan. The paintings of Palazzo Pretorio interact with those of the De Vito collection, according to a chronological, stylistic and thematic sequence: a journey that begins with post-Caravaggesque naturalism, in the different interpretations of the Neapolitan artists, up to the pictorial expressiveness of the Baroque language; an itinerary in which Battistello Caracciolo, Jusepe de Ribera, the Maestrodell'AnnuncioaiPastori, Bernardo Cavallino, Mattia Preti, Nicola Malinconico mark the stages of an exciting visual and emotional experience.
