Tiziano e Caravaggio in Peterzano
6 February | 17 May 2020

Peterzano, Venere e cupido con due satiri in un paesaggio, 1570-1573


The latest major exhibition event at the Accademia Carrara is another world first.

A pupil of Titian and the master of Caravaggio, Simone Peterzano was a crucial figure in the art of the Renaissance.

In his painting we find Venetian colours and the down-to-earth naturalistic tradition of Lombardy.
A legacy that appears overwhelmingly in the work of Caravaggio.

In an exhibition with a wealth of masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and Caravaggio, the rediscovery of Peterzano’s work is shown in the setting it deserves – among the greatest names in the history of Italian art.
