Pitting gilded gondolas against sumptuous coaches, Venice and Rome sought to surpass each other in staging the 18th-century's most spectacular festivals and celebrations. Peter Bjorn Kerber, curator of the exhibition Eyewitness Views: making History in Eighteenth-Century Europe, explores the pictures Canaletto, Panini, and other leading painters produced to record these dazzling occasions.
