Tiziano’s last artworks are characterized by the creation and development of a curious tecnique called “pittura a macchia” (spotted painting), which has always been the object of international study and research. Tiziano has a his own style, easily recognizable, characterized by quick and sometimes inaccurate marks, with no drafts, which makes figures real and alive, and together with subjects sensuality makes unique these artworks.

In this exhibition it is possible to admire one of the artworks that the world museums envy, Tiziano’s last artwork, La Pietà, par excellence symbol of that tecnique and that artistic period.

The exhibion is made up of 3 sections, which are respectively dedicated to the portrays, to the profane topics, and to the holy painting, all prestigious artworks whose union represents a unique event for Italy.
