Caroto e le arti tra Mantegna e Veronese

13 Mag – 2 Ott 2022

From 13 May to 2 October 2022, the Palazzo della Gran Guardia in Verona will be hosting the major exhibition Caroto e le arti tra Mantegna e Veronese (Caroto and the Arts between Mantegna and Veronese) dedicated to this Renaissance artist who worked in Verona, Mantua, Milan and Casale. Visitors will be going on a journey through Renaissance art in Verona by Caroto and the other great masters of that period, to learn about this flourishing season of arts, archaeology, natural sciences, and collecting.

The exhibition

Caroto e le arti tra Mantegna e Veronese (Caroto and the Arts between Mantegna and Veronese) is the first exhibition dedicated to this artist born in Verona. It is ideally linked to similar other events promoted by the Direzione Musei Civici di Verona and dedicated to Mantegna (2006-2007) and Paolo Veronese (2014), completing a sort of trilogy on Verona’s Renaissance.

This major exhibition, set up in the monumental spaces of the Palazzo della Gran Guardia, showcases the artistic evolution of Giovan Francesco Caroto (circa 1480 -1555), and follows him from his youthful beginnings and early career to his acknowledged role as an artist of great renown. More than 100 works from some of the most prestigious Italian and international collections inform an exhibition itinerary featuring 10 sections, with three innovative multimedia installations, with projections, and digital immersive reconstructions of historical contexts.
