Palazzo Barberini celebrates the style and artistic collaboration between Mattia and Gregorio Preti. The exhibition revolves around the Allegory of the Five Senses, a monumental canvas in the style of Caravaggio painted by the two brothers in the XVII century, and restored for the occasion by Giuseppe Mantella. Among the works on display, Christ and the Cananea, Archimedes and an Apostle, which testify the early reflection of Mattia on the paintings of Caravaggio and Jusepe de Ribera.
