The exhibition – consisting of over fifty masterpieces borrowed from leading Italian and international museums –  including but not limited to Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, Galleria Borghese in Rome, and Museo del Prado in Madrid – hinges upon the great Venetian painter Titian and the two key works-of-art he painted in Brescia: the Polyptych commissioned by Bishop Altobello Averoldi between 1520 and 1522 for the collegiate church of Santi Nazaro and Celso, and the three canvases with Allegories of Brescia, painted by Titian many years later, in the sixties of the 16th century, for the Salone della Loggia,  and destroyed by a fire in 1575.
