Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

The Meeting between King Rachis of the Longobards and Pope Zacharias during the Siege of Perugia

Francesco Solimena

Solimena’s two studies were kept in the church of San Giorgio in Venice and were chosen for the Pinacoteca by Pietro Edwards, the city’s Commissioner for Requisitions. The subject, another study for the decoration of the now destroyed Chapel of St. Carloman, is once again associated with the history of the abbey of Montecassino.
