Niccolò Berrettoni’s frescoes in Villa Cattani Stuart
Niccolò Berrettoni (1637 – 1682) was an Italian painter from the Baroque period.
Born in Macerata Feltria, as a young boy he studied under his master Simone Cantarini in Pesaro and after his master’s death moved to Rome around 1670 to work in Carlo Maratta’s studio. Thanks to Carlo Maratta, he obtained important work assignments.
Berrettoni’s legacy to the city of Pesaro resides on the piano nobile of Villa Cattani (17th century) thanks to its splendid frescoes, restored by our property in 2021 and now admirable free of charge for all guests of the structure.
Here is a foretaste of what you can admire live during your stay at Villa Cattani Stuart.
