A Dream of Italy: The Marquis Campana’s Collection
The Musée du Louvre and the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg are joining forces for an outstanding exhibition based on the collection built up by the Marquis Campana between 1830 and 1850.
Fall 2018 – Hall Napoléon
For the first time in 160 years, the exhibition will provide a comprehensive overview of the 19th century’s largest private collection, whose 10,000 exhibits—archaeological items, paintings, sculptures, and “modern” objets d’art—included such masterpieces as the Sarcophagus of the Spouses and Paolo Uccello’s Battle of San Romano.
Addressing the personality and tastes of Giampietro Campana, the way he brought together this truly extraordinary ensemble, and its ultimate dispersal throughout Europe, the exhibition will also highlight the collection’s seminal role in the affirmation of Italian culture as the Italian nation gradually took shape in the course of the 19th century. Thus it will illustrate the collection’s significance in terms of cultural awareness in Italy and Europe as a whole.
