Hall of Pietro da Cortona - Pietro da Cortona and his Circle

Baroque was born around the 1630s, out of the intense Roman cultural environment of the first decades of the seventeenth century, coinciding with the papacy of Urban VIII Barberini. Pietro da Cortona was the first authentic representative of this new style, especially for his grandiose scenes, the artist was also a model of an entire generation of painters.
