Rome: "The universal museum.
From the dream of Napoleon to Canova "at the Scuderie del Quirinale Museum
In 1798, Napoleon has requisitioned absolute masterpieces of Italian art to complete the collections of the nascent Louvre. A wound that quickly turns into a chance for renewal and allows Italy to become more aware of its heritage. It was not until 1816 that most of the confiscated masterpieces were returned to the nascent Italy and came to find the works, in the meantime rediscovered in the private collections and churches of the peninsula. This exhibition presents this extraordinary adventure and presents some of the works of Italian artistic culture at the dawn of independence and unity of the country.
Until March 12th. Www.scuderiequirinale.it
