From October 17, 2018 to January 26, 2019, the Louvre offers a new exhibition by partnering with the State Heritage Museum in Saint Petersburg to display Baron Campana’s collection.

Paintings, sculptures, archeological items, modern art objects… A collection bellowing to Baron Campana, a very rich collection put together between 1830 and 1850 that the Louvre Museum undertook to present for this exceptional exhibition.

The idea is to give “a complete picture of the 19th century’s greatest private collection” for the first time in 160 years. A collection that has never been fully displayed then and at the same place, the works being scattered across Europe (mostly in France). It features over 10,000 pieces including many works of art such as The Battle of San Romano by Paolo Uccello, already displayed at the Louvre, or The Sarcophagus of the Spouses a work belonging to the museum’s Greek and Etruscan Antiquities.

This is a way to discover Italian aristocrat Giampietro Camapana’s personality who used to be a Baron of his state as well as to discover the way he put all these works together, his taste for art and the scattering of the collection across Europe. The exhibition also aims at showing “how important this collection is in the Italian and European cultural awareness” with a trail highlighting “the founding moment that the Camapana collection represents in the Italian culture assertion” and in the context of the emergence of Italy as a united nation at the time of the Risorgimento (the Italian unification).
