Genoa has a rich and fascinating history 

Genoa celebrates one of its greatest periods of splendour from March 27 to July 10, 2022 with the Superbarocco Project. 

The Baroque period, between the 17th and 18th centuries was when the Republic reached its apex o and experienced a moment of singular vivacity not only as an economic and financial power, but also as a cultural and artistic capital.

Genoa is also in the spotlight in Rome

The Superbarocco Project presents two major events for art and culture enthusiasts: the exhibition The Shape of Wonder at Palazzo Ducale and the The Protagonists of the Baroque in Genoa series of exhibitions spread throughout the city. All of this is in keeping with the Scuderie del Quirinale's major exhibition in Rome, which is a magnificent tribute to Genoa and its most glorious days.

Masterpieces by many of the world’s greatest artists

The Shape of Wonder - Masterpieces in Genoa between 1600 and 1750 focuses on a unique period in Genoa's history with works of extraordinary quality created by renowned foreign artists like Rubens, Van Dyck, and Puget, as well as brilliant local talents like Bernardo Strozzi, Valerio Castello, and Gregorio De Ferrari.
