A magnificent retrospective of the painter Titian’s work is currently on display at Scuderie del Quirinale. Forty pieces demonstrate how the artist’s work matured and changed radically over the course of his lifetime. After viewing the collection it is no wonder why Titian is known as the greatest artist of the Venetian Renaissance. We were spellbound by the thought provoking Allegory of Prudence and the contrasting skin, facial, and hair tones of Flora.
Bonus: there is a great view of the Rome skyline at the end of the exhibit, before descending to the ground floor.
Audio guides are available in English, Italian and French. Skip the free Tiziano App available for Apple devices and Smart phones. The App offers a cheaper version of the audio guide but ours stopped loading and we had to go back to the entrance to exchange it for an audio guide. The exhibit runs until June 16.
The floor near the artwork is clearly delineated to mark the distance visitors should keep from the paintings. Several times the alarms went off by people not respecting the boundaries. Don’t be that guy.
