With this initiative, the paintings “Pesca miracolosa” and “Noli me tangere” by Benvenuto Tisi known as Garofalo have left the storerooms of the Galleria Borghese to arrive in Ferrara, where they have been exhibited at the National Archaeological Museum of Palazzo Costabili, together with the altarpiece of the “Crocifissione con la Vergine, la Maddalena e i Santi Giovanni e Vito” by the same artist, coming from the Pinacoteca di Brera.

 The three paintings are temporarily exhibited in the Sala delle carte geografiche waiting to be permanently placed – at the end of the new exhibition – in the Sala del Tesoro that preserves a wonderful vault frescoed between 1503 and 1506 by Garofalo himself, with a fresco depicting characters of rank facing an illusory balcony.

 The initiative is part of the project “100 works return home” launched by the Minister of Culture, Dario Franceschini, to give visibility to the works kept in the storerooms of art museums, of artists more or less known, and to promote the smaller, peripheral and less frequented museums.

 These three paintings are joined by Carlo Bononi’s painting “San Bruno in preghiera con altri monaci“, which arrived from Brera last December 15 and is now visible in the permanent collection of the Pinacoteca Nazionale di Ferrara (Gallerie Estensi).
