On a historical note, the exhibit marks the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and the Order of Malta. To make the exhibit a reality, several museums from Russia, Malta, Italy, the Louvre in France  came together to loan some of the pieces to Moscow's Kremlin Museum.

Included is also a Caravaggio portrait of Antonio Martelli from the Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
The exhibit titled "Treasures of the Order of Malta: "Nine centuries at the service of Faith and Charity,” is also making history in yet another way. The Order's Grand Master, Matthew Festing attended the opening, marking the Order's first high ranking visit to Russia in over 200 years.

Organizers hope the exhibit will highlight the strong bonds between the Order and Russia, especially how that country helped the Order to continue its charitable works.

The exhibit will run until September 9th.
