Italian Renaissance Alive takes visitors on a spellbinding tour across Italy, indulging in the beauty and brilliance of arguably the greatest artistic period in history.
The Renaissance brought a cultural, artistic, political and economic rebirth to Europe following the Middle Ages and the fall of the Roman Empire. Out of the darkness emerged a new vision of civilization that was portrayed on canvas, in fresco, and sculpture throughout Italy.
Italian Renaissance Alive traverses the entire Renaissance period, from the 14th to 17th Centuries. It celebrates the exceptional artistic and cultural influences of the period, immersing audiences in culture, architecture, sculpture, and literature of this iconic movement.

ITALIAN RENAISSANCE ALIVE - THE EXPERIENCE
Visitors will be instantly transported by the history and splendour of this extraordinary period, surrounded by its beauty, and experience in glorious detail, hundreds of masterpieces from some of the world’s most revered artists and sculptors. Make no mistake – this is no ordinary art exhibition. Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience.
Explore like never before Michelangelo’s breath-taking Sistine Chapel, Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Boticelli’s Birth of Venus, and other glorious works by Raphael, Caravaggio, Titian, Veronese and more, in an awe-inspiring, large-scale, immersive experience.
Accompanied by a powerful Italian operatic score including works by Puccini and Verdi, combined with a compelling narrative, this multi-sensory experience will deliver audiences a captivating, educational and entertaining moment to remember.
The Renaissance period grew out of a clear and vibrant vision of what art should and can be, and in doing so, showed us how full life could be. What might we create today if we view our world through the eyes of the Renaissance masters? Italian Renaissance Alive will inspire us to ponder and dream of the possibilities.
