The Capitoline Museums in Rome have introduced two new paintings for the Christmas season. They come from the fifteenth century Italian artist Pintoricchio.
Located right in front of the Piazza Campidoglio, Romans and tourist can visit this new addition that showcases this Renaissance art. The exhibit was opened as a gift by the city government for Christmas.Gian Maria Mairo
Art Curator“The sweetness of the relation between Mary and the Child is so close to remind us how important is this period to attend to the family and it's completely surrounded by the Christmas spirit.”
Now alongside many of Rome's ancient art pieces, tourists can find two of Pintoricchio's most well known pieces. Entrance to the exhibit is free to the public and will be open until February of 2012.
