In the Capitolium archaeological area visitors are greeted by the 20 Testimoni (20 Witnesses, 2009), Paladino’s archetypical tuff rock sculptures. In the first Cell of the Temple stand the evocative Corali (Chorales,1997), four mixed media works on silver leaf applied on panel, and the large Untitled (1997) silkscreen print.

In the so-called Fourth Cell, the Capitolium’s Holy of Holies, is Ritiro (Retirement,1992), a colossal painted bronze figure evoking ancient divinities.

In the Roman Theatre of Brescia is one of the exhibition’s highpoints: the series of five-metre wide Specchi ustori (Shingle Mirrors) in brass, silkscreen print, and paint, a project that Paladino especially created for this location.
