Palazzo Marino, Piazza della Scala
Visit to the palace full of art and history, institutional headquarters of Milan City Council, that hosts Tiziano’s “Sacred Conversation 1520”. The majestic altarpiece ‘Sacra Conversazione 1520 (Pala Gozzi)’ is the first known and dated painting by Tiziano.
Painted in 1520 by the then thirty-year-old painter for the Dubrovnik merchant Luigi Gozzi, and destined for the church of San Francesco in Alto in Ancona, the work belongs to the iconographic genre of the altarpiece called ‘Sacra Conversazione’. The Madonna with the Child suddenly appears in a sky of clouds in vibrant movement, inflamed by the magical light of the sunset; below, the vision of St. Francis, who the church was dedicated to, and St. Biagio protector of the Dalmatian city, indicating to the kneeling client the celestial apparition.The artwork comes from the Civic Art Gallery ‘Francesco Podesti’ of Ancona and can be visited at Palazzo Marino from December 5th to January 14th 2018.
