Palazzo di Venezia presents the first major exhibition dedicated to the Venetian painter Carlo Saraceni, who was active in Roma from 1598 until 1619, before returning to Venice where he died in 1620.
During Sarceni's time in Rome his work was much in demand by the era's most important religious and artistocratic patrons of the arts, and his commissions included the Sala Regia frescoes at the Quirinal Palace.
The result of years of work, the retrospective highlights how the artist's style evolved as well as his path to international fame and success. The exhibition includes both large and small pieces, works never exhibited and recently restored paintings.
