Florence and the Uffizi Gallery
Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

“Florence and the Uffizi Gallery” is a multi-dimensional journey of the
city that was once the cradle of the Italian Renaissance. Journey
through the most beautiful and representative works of art of the period
from Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Raphael, Leonardo and Botticelli, with
a detailed central chapter dedicated to the very treasure house
containing their masterpieces: the Uffizi Gallery. This feature includes
the breathtaking “Adoration of the Magi” by Leonardo Da Vinci, which
will be brought back to life in 2016, after several years of
restoration, and unveiled here in an exclusive premiere on the big

Goya – Visions of Flesh and Blood
Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

Discover Spain’s celebrated artist with this cinematic tour de force
based on the National Gallery’s must-see exhibition “Goya: The
Portraits.” Francisco Goya is Spain’s most celebrated artist and
considered the father of modern art. Not only a brilliant observer of
everyday life and Spain’s troubled past, he is a gifted portrait painter
and social commentator par excellence. Goya takes the genre of
portraiture to new heights and his genius is reappraised in a landmark
exhibition at The National Gallery, London.

Leonardo Da Vinci – The Ultimate Exhibition
– Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

This exhibition-event is the result of six years’ work by leading
Leonardo experts, Pietro Marani and M. Teresa Fiorio. It is divided into
12 sections, retracing with scientific rigor the multiple paths
travelled by the mind of the genius, including: the foundation of
drawing, the role of nature and science, comparison between the arts,
reflection on the ancients, the utopian projects, anatomy and mechanics,
the unity of knowledge, images of the divine and myths over the
centuries (starting with the success of the Mona Lisa).

Renoir – Revered and Reviled
Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

Renoir is one of the most fiercely debated artists and yet one of the
most influential. Picasso collected more Renoirs than any other artist.
Matisse revered him; Monet too. He was an artist that was instrumental
in creating the Impressionist movement and then totally rejected it and
went in a completely new direction – with extraordinary results. “The
Barnes Collection” in Philadelphia has more Renoirs than any other
gallery in the world and it is there that the search begins to tell the
incredible story of this remarkable artist.

Monet to Matisse – Painting the Modern Garden
– Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter
of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Artists like Van
Gogh, Bonnard, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful
subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous
names, are featured in an innovative exhibition from The Cleveland
Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London. From the exhibition walls
to the beauty of artist gardens like Monet’s “Giverny,” we take a
magical journey to discover how artists used the modern garden to
explore radical and wonderful new ideas.

Teatro Alla Scala: The Temple of Wonders
– Thursday, June 16, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

This is the theatre where absolute masterpieces came to life such as
“Nabucco,” “Norma” and “Othello,” and which hosted, in the fifties,
Luchino Visconti’s scandalous, cutting-edge “Traviata” featuring Maria
Callas. It is the place were historical mises en scènes have taken
place and where extraordinary voices have been immortalized, such as
those of Placido Domingo, Maria Callas, Renata Tebaldi, Mirella Freni
and Luciano Pavarotti, as well as incredible performances by legendary
conductors such as Arturo Toscanini, Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Muti and
Claudio Abbado.

The Papal Basilicas of Rome
Thursday, July 14, 2016 at 7 p.m. local time

“The Papal Basilicas of Rome” is a unique feature that combines history,
spirituality, architecture and art. It takes its cue from the
Extraordinary Jubilee, proclaimed by Pope Francis, which will see the
faithful from all over the world pour into Rome in their millions, to
cross the threshold of the Papal Basilicas and obtain a plenary
indulgence. The opening of the Holy Doors will be a historical moment,
certain to draw the whole world’s attention to Rome’s Papal Basilicas
and be the ideal opportunity to tell the story, using a narrative
language that will emotionally involve audiences, as they witness the
magnificence that lies inside the four Basilicas.
