Fendi is synonymous with the world of art, especially those concerning Rome, and the Italian fashion house has continued deepening its relationship with art and the city by partnering with the renowned Galleria Borghese for two objectives: bring a series of Caravaggio paintings around the world and support the exhibitions held at the iconic Roman art gallery, constituted under the umbrella of Caravaggio Research Institute.
The former is what we’re incredibly interested in, as it will be the first time that such well-preserved paintings from the Italian master, who was active during the Baroque and Renaissance periods, will step out of the gallery and into other countries.
The first stop of the global exhibition by Fendi and Galleria Borghese will be this month at the Los Angeles Getty Museum, starting from 21 November. It will host three works from Caravaggio – David with the head of Goliath, Saint Jerome and the Boy with a basket of fruit.
The Asian stops of the tour haven’t been announced but we’re hoping that Singapore will be one of the stops.
