Dive into the ecstasy of art
Take your time until June 28th to visit the lovely exhibition 'La Collezione Cavallini Sgarbi' at the Bishop's Palace in Portogruaro, Venice.

The works of the collection belong to Vittorio Sgarbi, a renowned art historian worldwide, and his family. Their love for art is well expressed by this family's legacy with the best artists and their masterpieces, stories, and portraits, full of amorous allure dated from the fifteenth century. Indeed, the canvas is pure, some luminous and other detailed with a pathos that exerts attraction and power on the visitor. The images of beautiful women literally establish a sentimental connection within the person who is looking to them and the same happens with the Madonna and Child, other Saints and political men and several Christ's scenes. It is important not to forget the fantastic busts you can admire in this harmonious setting. Among the seventy works selected for the exhibition, the most significant and expressive are:
