12 Dec-11 April 2010. Almost all the most important buildings in the city host a section of this major exhibition. It is dislocated in six venues but the core of it is in the collection of works from Caravaggio to Solimena at the Museo Capodimonte. At Castel S. Elmo are many of the restored 17th and 18th century works from churches around Naples. The Certosa of S. Martino is one of the best examples of baroque architecture in the city. The Museo Duca di Mantova houses the decorative arts, and the still lifes are at Museo Pignatelli. Palazzo Reale displays the architectural drawings, maps and nativity scenes. The period covers a century and a half, examining three periods; the arrival of Caravaggio in the city in 1606, the influence of Luigi Vanvitelli and Ferdinando Fuga (1750) and the departure of Carlo di Borbone for Spain in 1759.
