Early in 1500, a boy descends from the mountains of Dogado, a city covered in gold. He will be eventually remembered as the most excellent of those who have painted.” The film Titian. The Empire of Color explores the life and work of Tiziano Vecellio, one of the greatest painters of the Renaissance. From Ferrara to Urbino, from Mantua to Rome to the Spain of Charles V and his son Philip II, Titian spanned the century, illuminating it with his paintings. We are carried away by the beauty of the images and the spectacular settings that accompany the testimonials to this great production.
