On February 27th the exhibition Flesh and Blood: Italian Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum opened at the Kimbell Art Museum in Forth Worth, Texas, in the presence of the Consul General of Italy in Houston Federico Ciattaglia. The exhibition, which comes from the Seattle Art Museum where it has already been a great success, will open to the public on March 1st and it will be possible to visit it until June 14th.

The 40 masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance and Baroque come from the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, which holds one of the largest and most important art collections in Italy. The works were created between the 16th and 17th centuries by artists such as Titian, Raphael, Caravaggio, Parmigianino, Annibale Carracci, Artemisia Gentileschi, Guido Reni, Luca Giordano, El Greco and Jusepe de Ribera. The masterpieces on display are of various formats and purposes - from private devotion to state art - and present various themes - from Christian martyrology to the myth of passion. Among the most important paintings on display are the Flagellation of Christ by Caravaggio and Judith and Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi.

The Italian Ambassador to the United States, Armando Varricchio, expressed himself in these terms about the exhibition: "This spectacular exhibition is also a confirmation of the strong cooperation between some of the main cultural institutions and associations in Italy and the United States. They have worked tirelessly to renew and strengthen the bonds of friendship and deep cultural connections between our countries and peoples, bringing a unique view of Italy to Seattle and Fort Worth".
