At the Royal Palace of Colorno, a few kilometers from Parma, until 28 July 2024, some little-known aspects of the extraordinary figure of Ferdinand I of Bourbon Parma (1751-1802) will be on display through iconographic, historical and religious documents.

Thanks to numerous family portraits and works related to his devotional practice, as well as monumental projects and preparatory drawings for paintings with religious and allegorical themes, the figure of Don Ferdinando will emerge as a curious intellectual, collector and protector of the arts, freeing him from prejudice about his excessive religious devotion.

In a cultural and political context apparently unfavorable to religious sentiment, Ferdinand stood out as a modern supporter of a culture that unites art, religion and science, without being an illuminist or a bigot.
