With this international exhibition, the Sabbioneta Heritage Foundation gets to the heart of its management and valorization activities of the artistic and monumental heritage of the UNESCO site of Sabbioneta, the Ideal City founded by Vespasiano Gonzaga Colonna.

Under the frescoed ceilings and along the twenty-six arches of the Gallery of the Ancients, imposing sculptures, large paintings on canvas and, for the first time all together, ten provocative engravings by the artist will be exhibited, whose distinctive feature is to reproduce the figures head-on down.
