Finally, 100 masterpieces, some of them unpublished, will be exhibited from 1 May to 26 July 2009 at Castel Sant’Angelo, in the XXVIII European edition of the Exhibition of Tourism and Cultural Traditions, which this year has the suggestive title of "Invisible Treasures”. "Invisible wonders”, we might add, because some of the impressive Italian cultural heritage is hidden, kept in storage of state museums.

The exhibit is divided into sections: “Deposit of Excellence "," Matter of Space", "Perennial Deposit”, “Extra-museum Deposit", "Architecture of the deposit", "Passages of State", "Memories from the warehouse", "Contemporary Deposits" and "The culture of the new citizens."


The works on exhibition come  from many parts of Italy: the prestigious Pinacoteca Vaticana and many of the most important Italian museums, including the National Archaeological Museum of Taranto, the National Palace of Venice, the National Gallery of Palazzo Barberini, and gallery of modern art in Rome, the Museo Regionale di Messina, the Galleria Regionale della Sicilia Palazzo Abatellis, the Capodimonte Museum, the Galleria degli Uffizi, the Palatine Gallery, the Pinacoteca di Brera The Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna, the Museo Nazionale d’Abruzzo, the National Gallery of Umbria.

At the exhibit there are delicate works, textiles, scrolls, manuscripts, prints, photographs, and many other objects and works of art that have been retrieved from the underground market by the Italian police.

This is of course, an exceptional opportunity to admire many interesting works of art usually kept away from the average tourist. To enjoy this and many other cultural activities, make a reservation at Hotel Des Artistes or Yes Hotel, our knowledgeable staff will be more than happy to help you to discover the wonders of the Eternal City.
