For those who haven’t visited Castel Sant’Angelo yet, now there’s one more good reason to do it: the exhibit ”Popes of hope: art and religion in Seventeeth century Rome” has been extended to 11 January 2015. On display masterpieces of Italian art between ‘500 and ‘600 (by Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Pietro da Cortona): at that time, indeed, the most skilful artists where called to Rome and sponsored by the Popes to embellish what was already becoming the “Eternal City”.
The exhibit has been designed in order to celebrate the first year after Pope Francis’ election, and achieve such a goal showing what a transformation occurred in Rome in those centuries when the city turned back to be the centre of Christian world after ages of troubles. Even thanks to the arts and those who sponsored them.
Where & when: Castel Sant’Angelo Museum. Tue-Sun 9am-7pm.
