Featuring over 200 masterpieces from the most prestigious museums around the world, public and private institutions, religious bodies and private collections, the exhibition includes paintings and altarpieces, sculptures, tapestries, drawings, engravings, furnishings and precious objects. The exhibition takes the visitors on an extraordinary journey into European art between the late seventeenth and mid-eighteenth centuries, a journey towards modernity that hinges upon the direct confrontation between Rome and Paris, the two main cultural hubs of the whole of Europe, with which Turin established in those years a fruitful exchange of ideas, artists and works. The defiance to the Baroque is launched by artists in the name of modernity. Vying with the great works of the Ancient Masters of the Renaissance and the first half of the seventeenth century, the artists explored the potential in the observation of nature, reality and emotions, experimenting with innovative languages of expression and communication.
