Mantegna-Bellini: A talk with Caroline Campbell and Giovanni Carlo Federico Villa

“A story of art, family, rivalry, and personality”

Join us to witness a talk between two of the most respected curators and expert of Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini.

The decade-long dialogue between Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini has been one of the most profitable and fascinating in the history of Italian art.
