The exhibition Three Centuries of Italian Art is an overview of 300 years of Italian art from 1500 to 1800 including masterworks from the Renaissance, Mannerist, Baroque and Rococo eras. More than one hundred works from public and private collections in cities such as Rome, Florence, Bologna, Venice and Naples are displayed chronologically.
