The synthesis of more than thirty years of studies on the painter, giving us the figure of a different Titian. Not the usual courtier and colored painter of princes, popes and beautiful women, but a new artist, a painter who reflects and debates with intellectuals on contemporary issues and current problems between politics and religion, music and literature. A painter ready to break away from Venice and the last Italian lordships to address the risk of the European dimension. Titian, in the history of ideas.
