The action begins in the late spring of 1560, at the end of a century ravaged by wars and great historical and religious changes. In that decline, the Venetian painter Tiziano Vecellio is caught in his studio, in front of a sketched canvas. The authoritative, disenchanted Master, now seventy-years-old, is waiting for the visit of the “painter of angels”, a mysterious artist just arrived in Venice, whose incredible gifted artwork was so sublime as to have earned him the title of “Painter of Angels”. Tiziano senses a foreboding danger to his position, fame and standing, won over a lifetime of service to princes and popes. In fact, the arrival of the young artist does upset both the professional and private life of Tiziano and will throw him and his beliefs into inner conflict. In a dramatic crescendo of spiritual revelations, the duel between the two artists will shift from Venice to Bergamo, and back to Venice, until the unexpected, double ending that will add the last brush stroke to the masterpiece.
