The catalog centers on a painting showing Torello da Poppi blessing a woman nearing the end of her pregnancy (oil on canvas, late 18th century), an utterly unique iconography in the panorama of Tuscan painting. Restored especially for the exhibition held in Florence from 8th July to 1st November 2022, the large canvas originally commissioned for the church of Santa Trinita in Florence is attributed to the Florentine painter Santi Pacini and has been dated to the late 1770s, when the artist was engaged in painting the frescoes in the vault over the choir in the church of Camaldoli.
