Lucretia and Verginia are featured in two paintings by Sandro Botticelli completed between 1500 and 1510. Once upon a time they hung next to one another on the walls of an aristocratic Florentine residence, but were separated by the vagaries of history: Lucretia went to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and Verginia went to Accademia Carrara in Bergamo.

Now they are reunited after two centuries for an exhibition-event. “Storia di Virginia Romana” and “Storia di Lucrezia” are exhibited alongside other works by Botticelli and 15th and 16th century artists. Don’t miss the opportunity to admire the two works together and learn more about the tragic fates of these two legendary women: Virginia Romana was killed by her father so that she would not be dishonoured and Lucretia chose death over rape.

Bergamo | Until 28 January 2019
