The exhibition

Opened from 18 November, it will be until 18 March 2018 and celebrates the genius of Galileo Galilei tracing his life and his training told through other great of the past.

It is an exhibition full of works, objects and references to the Galileo’s discoveries who have revolutionized the way of seeing things, literally, starting from the XVI century. The eighteen Paduan years, then one of the most praised and frequented centers of European culture, are himself remembered as “the best of all my age”.

The works

The works are exhibited in the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà, in piazza Duomo in Padua in a mixture of art, science, music, philosophy and literature: paintings, illustrations and sculptures alongside ancient texts or extraordinary scientific instruments. A journey through seven centuries: from the visions of Leonardo da Vinci to those of Jules Verne, Doré or Georges Méliès up to the photos of NASA or Andreas Gursky.

The curators Giovanni Carlo Federico Villa and Stefan Weppelmann have thought of an exhibition including masterpieces by Dürer, Rubens, Guercino, Previati, Brueghel the Younger, Pellizza da Volpedo, Luca Giordano, Balla and Anish Kapoor.

An opportunity to remember how the sky was before Galileo and how it really is after his revelations, an opportunity to understand today a great Italian genius.
