The article reports about the certain antiques and old landscape paintings found from the archaeological surveys. The exhibition entitled "The Allobroges: The Gauls and the Romans from the Rhone to the Alps," is on view until April 3 in the city of Geneva, Switzerland. It is centered on the most recent archaeological discoveries in Geneva and explores the daily life of the Allobroges as well as their religious and funeral rites. The article further informs about Salvator Rosa who was born near Naples in 1615 and spent much of his life in Naples and Rome and a period of nine years as a Medici court painter in Florence. His initial subjects were battles, but he soon specialized in landscapes. Rosa's approach was innovative, because he departed from notions of classical beauty and depicted wild and savage scenes.
