The Cartoon for the battle of Ponte Milvio by Giulio Romano on display in the Pinacoteca

From 23 November 2023, in room 1 of the Pinacoteca, it is possibile to admire the cartoon “The Battle of Constantine” by Giulio Romano, on display again at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana after a restoration which took place as part of Restituzioni 2022, the programme for the restoration and valorisation of cultural heritage promoted by Intesa San Paolo

The preparatory study on paper, already known in the past as “a battle of Giulio Romano” for the fresco commissioned by Pope Leo X in the Room of Constantine, represents a precious tool for investigating the artist’s work. The fragment of the cartoon, whose restoration has allowed an unprecedented reading of all the drawing and chiaroscuro values, was used to fresco the group of soldiers who, in the composition, are distributed to the right of the figure of Constantine up to the the Ponte Milvio.
