Baroque in Rome. The Wonder of the Arts
ROME, ITALY  •  Fondazione Roma Museo-Palazzo Cipolla  •  1 April - 26 July 2015
 

The Fondazione Roma Museo-Palazzo Cipolla presents an ambitious cultural operation, mainly driven by the exhibition entitled Barocco a Roma. La meraviglia delle arti (Baroque in Rome. The Wonder of the Arts). Like the metaphorical ‘Barberini Sun’ the exhibition is in the middle of an original ‘heliocentric system’, where the rays are represented by a rich series of satellite events and projects held in some of the main Baroque sites in Rome.

The exhibition presents several unpublished works such as the drawing referable to Ciro Ferri drawn from frescoes by Pietro da Cortona for Palazzo Pamphilj in Piazza Navona and other pieces which have never been exhibited in Italy, amongst which the so-called Counter-Project for the colonnade on Saint Peter’s Square by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Visitors may also admire Bernini’s sketches for the statutes on Ponte Sant’Angelo and the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa (belonging to the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg); the valuable tapestry The infant Moses trampling on the Pharaoh’s crown on cardboard by Nicolas Poussin (from the Mobilier National in Paris), as well as designs by Francesco Borromini and Pietro da Cortona. The presentation to the public of the Musician Angles by Giovanni Lanfranco (works that survived the fire in the Church of the Capuchins in the nineteenth century), which have been recently restored owing to Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei.

Other masterpieces which have been exclusively lent to the exhibition in Palazzo Cipolla are: Portrait of Costanza Bonarelli by Bernini; Atalanta and Hippomenes by Guido Reni (Museo di Capodimonte); The Triumph of Baccus by Pietro da Cortona (Musei Capitolini); Saint Mary Magdalene Penitent by Giovan Francesco Barbieri known as Il Guercino (Vatican Museums) and Time Vanquished by Love and Beauty by Simon Vouet (Museo Nacional del Prado).
