La Misericordia nell'arte

31 May-27 Nov. Coinciding with the Vatican's ongoing Holy Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Capitoline Museums examines the theme of mercy through paintings, sculpture, engravings and miniatures by Italian masters.

The exhibition comprises works of art from across Italy, with highlights include paintings by Guido Reni, Jacopo Bertoia and Pierre Subleyras, as well as a bas-relief by Pietro Bernini, father of Gian Lorenzo.

The museum also highlights two masterpieces that were deemed too precious to leave their homes in Naples and Sansepolcro respectively: the Sette Opere di Misericordia by Caravaggio, and the Polittico della Misericordia by Piero della Francesca.
