Item description for Encounters (Italian Edition) by Ludovico Pratesi...

In 1902 the Italian government purchased the extraordinary Gallery Borghese. The centennial celebration of the acquisition of this historical palazzo will conclude with an unprecedented event in Italy: the project Encounters, which brings together ancient art, contemporary art and the art of restoration. Encounters is about the coexistence and the dialogue between seven Italian masters and seven masterpieces of the past (five of which are being restored for the occasion) belonging to the Gallery Borghese and presented to the public for the first time.
The encounters are between: Carla Accardi and Giovanni Bellini (Madonna with Baby); Francesco Clemente and Raffaello (Portrait of a Man) Enzo Cucchi and Peter Paul Rubens (Head of an Apostle); Jannis Kounellis and Caravaggio (David and Goliath); Luigi Ontani and Annibale Carracci (Portrait of a Man), Mimmo Paladino and Antonello da Messina (Portrait of a Man), Giulio Paolini and Perugino (Saint Sebastian).
