TEN MAS­TER­PIECES… PLUS ONE

Italia Luxury - - Landmarks | Art -

You can travel around Italy to dis­cover its mas­ter­pieces of art or you can wait for them to come to you which, though rarer, some­times hap­pens. One such ex­am­ple is Ti­tian's ‘Sa­cred Con­ver­sa­tion 1520', a ma­jes­tic al­tar­piece, also known as the ‘Gozzi Al­tar­piece'. This work, which can be viewed, with free ad­mis­sion, un­til 14 Jan­uary at Milan's Palazzo Marino, is on loan from the Pi­na­coteca Civica in An­cona, a city in Cen­tral Italy. Although this work be­longs to the tra­di­tional genre known as ‘sacra con­ver­sazione', it also marks a turn­ing point where Ti­tian goes be­yond the stan­dards of ar­chi­tec­ture and per­spec­tive of the 15th cen­tury. The choice of show­cas­ing this work also affirms Milan's sup­port for the city of An­cona which, over the past few months, has played a key role as a cen­tre for the stor­age and preser­va­tion of the nu­mer­ous art­works and mas­ter­pieces from the re­gions of the Marche that were struck by an earth­quake, which hit cen­tral Italy in 2016.
