Presentation

From this period of unprecedented artistic emulation, stylistic innovations traveled the peninsula in just a matter of years. Andrea Mantegna’s House of Spouses dialoguing with Raphael’s Stances at the Vatican; Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci going head to head; the Sistine Chapel overturning Venetian paintings…

 

UMA embraced this theme by designing a surreal space. The iconic works of churches and palaces are punctuated by a resolutely contemporary architecture.

 

The 10 most emblematic artists of the Renaissance, from Giotto to Correggio, are neck-and-neck.   The perspective, the color, the anatomy and the composition enter a whirlwind of modernity that will forever mark the History of Art.
