Works of art that will leave you breathless, housed within this wonderful frame, and illustrated by the explanation of an expert guide that will tell you the history, the stylistic features and the hidden meanings of the main masterpieces.
From the expressive power of Bernini's sculptures such as Apollo and Daphne and his David, to the refinement of the portrait of Paolina Bonaparte realized by Canova; from the elegance of Titian's paintings (Sacred and Profane Love) to the Caravaggio's thick brushstrokes (Young Sick Bacchus and Madonna and Child with St. Anne), a small journey surrounded by immortal works of art.
