Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Italy
Correggio and Antiquity

Correggio and Antiquity
ROME  •  Galleria Borghese  •  Ongoing

Antonio Allegri, known as Correggio is one of the three artists that form the so-called Renaissance triad – the others being Raphael and Michelangelo. Correggio’s contemporaries recognized him as a superb artist, the equal of Raphael and Michelangelo, and all scholars have always considered him as one of the greatest artists of all time. However, his fame has never been as widespread as that of the other two protagonists.

Curated by Anna Coliva, the Borghese Gallery's exhibition aims to argue the idea of Rome in Correggio’s work and the distinctiveness of his interpretation of Roman "forms". For the artists of the Renaissance, Rome was synonymous with the antique, the new awareness of its immanence, and the vitality of classical antiquity, which only in Rome was alive and not merely the subject of academic teaching.

Sixty masterpieces - paintings, drawings, and works of Antiquity - are on view.
