”POPES OF HOPE: ART AND RELIGION IN SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ROME”: CASTEL SANT’ANGELO LATEST EXHIBIT

”POPES OF HOPE: ART AND RELIGION IN SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ROME”: CASTEL SANT’ANGELO LATEST EXHIBIT

The current exhibit at Castel Sant’Angelo is entirely dedicated to the Popes who – between ‘500 and ‘600 – made of Rome the capital of Christian world throughout sponsoring works of art: that was the time indeed when art started to be considered as a precious vehicle to spread Christian religion. All major artists gathered in the Eternal City to beautify it with paintings and sculptures which we can admire till today. Many of them are now on display in the Popes’ fortress on the Tiber river: works by Caravaggio, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Pietro da Cortona, just to name a few.
Castel Sant’Angelo Museum is open Tue – Sun from 9am to 7pm. The exhibit has been extended to 11 January 2015. Contact http://www.hotelrome.net/ to get more information on the exhibit and to find the most suitable accommodation to you!
