The show

The Torino Musei Foundation, with the patronage of the Fabbrica di San Pietro in the Vatican and the Archdiocese of Turin, from 14 May to 20 July 2021 presents, in the Medieval Court of Palazzo Madama, the painting La Madonna delle Partorienti by Antoniazzo Romano (last decade of the fifteenth century).


The work is exhibited as an absolute preview to the public after a long and complex restoration, promoted by the Fabbrica di San Pietro with the support of Fideuram - Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking.
The exhibition, a unique and unrepeatable opportunity to admire the precious painting, before making its final return to the Sacred Grottoes of the Vatican Basilica, is organized with the support of Reale Mutua.

“For the first time the Madonna delle Partorienti, venerated for over five centuries in St. Peter's Basilica, leaves the Vatican to be presented in Turin in an exhibition that tells its centuries-old history and restoration. It comes - not by chance - in the Marian month, to bring comfort in this time of pandemic and hope for less difficult and more serene days ”. With these words of Cardinal Mauro Gambetti, Archpriest of the Papal Vatican Basilica, the visitor is introduced to the prestigious exhibition venue of Palazzo Madama in Turin to admire the restored Marian painting.


A Madonna "full of grace" who tenderly supports the Child Jesus, bringing him close to her. The two faces, painted with wisdom and skill, have an extraordinary expressive power: the loving gaze of the Heavenly Mother, serenely directed towards the faithful, invites us to pray in a collected and silent dialogue; that of the Son, on the other hand, seems to extend to the whole of humanity in a symbolic embrace.
