This extraordinary exhibition will recount the greatness of the most outstanding of all Baroque painters, Peter Paul Rubens and his relationship with the city.

The exhibition is produced by the Municipality of Genoa with Fondazione Palazzo Ducale per la Cultura and Electa, and was produced on the occasion of the fourth centenary of the publication in Antwerp of the celebrated volume of Peter Paul Rubens, Palazzi di Genova (1622). It is curated by Nils Büttner, professor at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart and the new chairman of the Centrum Rubenianum in Antwerp, and Anna Orlando, an independent Genoese scholar, co-curator of the exhibition The Age of Rubens held at the Doge’s Palace in 2004.

Over 100 works are presented in the exhibition, among which some twenty Rubens from European and Italian museums and collections are the highlight of the event, to which are added to those present in the city.

Starting from this core of works by Rubens, the story of the cultural and artistic context of the city in the age of its greatest splendour is completed through paintings by other artists that Rubens certainly saw and studied during his trip to Italy.
