"The exhibition shows a selection of paintings by some of the best landscape painters who worked in Rome between the 17th and 18th century, a period when landscape painting moves between The Ideal and The real".
"Landscape of Latium becomes the visualisation of a dream, it changes into myth as fables and ancient stories it performs, rising to a universal value. Tivoli is expression and synthesis of these ideas: the ancestral memory of ancient myths, the great vestiges of classical and Renaissance world, the panic sense of nature live together in an indissoluble union. The emotion caused by the landscape of Tivoli is expressed among the ideal, the real, the picturesque and the sublime in the views by Dughet, van Wittel, locatelli, Van Bloem, van Lint".
