The section dedicated to painting focuses on the early Italian Novecento and reflects Chiara and Francesco Carraro’s interests in painting.

The three canvases by Donghi provide immediate presage of the Collection’s tone and quality, and are appropriately placed in dialogue with two still lifes by Morandi. Giorgio de Chirico’s La notte di Pericle [Night of Pericles] and Severini’s impressive fresco complete the Ca’ Pesaro Collection.
