Lives of the Italian Renaissance

Curator : Jean Vergès

Synopsis of the exhibition

Synopsis of the exhibition

Who never dreamt of discovering the greatest masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance? Nested in the churches and palaces of Italy, these works have shaped the course of history and have changed forever our way of painting.

UMA immerses you in an original and modern architecture, where you will discover:

  • Ten masterpieces by ten masters of the Italian Renaissance gathered in one place
  • Rooms dedicated to Italian primitives, the High Renaissance and Venetian painters
  • An unprecedented confrontation of the geniuses of the time

An unprecedented period of artistic emulation, stylistic innovations roam the peninsula in only a few years: the House of Spouses by Andrea Mantegna dialogues with the Stanzas of Raphael in Vaticano; Michelangelo and Leonardo confront their genius; the Sistine Chapel shakes the Venetian painting.

UMA embraces this theme by designing an unreal space, where the emblematic churches and palaces are punctuated by resolutely contemporary architecture. The 10 most emblematic works of art of the Renaissance, from Giotto to Correggio, are thus confronted. The perspective, the color, anatomy, composition enter a whirlwind of modernity that will forever mark the History of Art
