About the exhibition

The Grand Tour of Italy, one of the most important journeys noblemen experienced between the 18th and the 19th century, is retraced through precious paintings and masterpieces from the “GRAND TOUR. Dream of Italy from Venice to Pompeii” exhibition hosted in the spaces of Gallerie d’Italia. The exhibition features around 130 works from the Intesa Sanpaolo collection, private collections and numerous Italian and international cultural institutions.
If, on the one hand, the works on display have been selected to provide a representation of a composite Italy, of poignant beauty, on the other hand, they present the documentation of the very protagonists who gave rise to the myth of the “bel paese”.

What’s on display?

Cities such as Venice, Florence, Rome and Naples, and historic villages, as well as landscapes (from the Alps to Vesuvius and Mount Etna) are some of the protagonists of paintings. The theme of festivals, carnivals, theatre and music are also celebrated the featured masterpieces, while sculpture tells of archaeology and the cult of the antique.
