Luca Cambiaso (Moneglia, Italy 1527 - El Escorial, Spain 1585) was one of the major figures in the artistic panorama of the mid 16th century, when Genoa, in a period of great vitality and flourishing economy, confirmed its leading role and the prestige of its aristocracy both in Italy and in Europe.

This publication accompanies the exhibition providing a comprehensive overview of Cambiaso's life and work. Forty years after the last exhibition on Cambiaso, an important new exhibition has been organised to pay homage to him, presenting to the public what emerged during the recent studies of the last years. What clearly emerges from the exhibition is the unique character of the Ligurian artist and his connection with the great masters of the 16th Century-- Michelangelo, Correggio, Titian - and his European dimension widely recognized by critics.
