Tito Moretti (Perugia, 1840–1913) was an Italian painter and manuscript illuminator.


He was the younger brother of Francesco Moretti, who had trained with Silvestro Valeri at the Academy of Fine Arts of Perugia. Tito also trained at the academy, and collaborated for over a decade with Francesco in painting enamel on glass. Tito later became academic of merit and professor of design at the Royal Technical School. Among his works are two large windows: one depicting a Pietà with Angels (1874, Cathedral) and the other a half-figure Madonna.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Bartolomeo Caporali</span> Italian painter

Bartolomeo Caporali was an Italian painter and miniaturist in Perugia, Umbria during the early Renaissance period. His style was influenced by Umbrian artists Gozzoli and Boccati, two of his first mentors, and continued to evolve as younger Umbrian artists came onto the scene, such as Fiorenzo di Lorenzo, Perugino and Pinturicchio. Although primarily a painter, he is also known for executing missals, restoration work, gilding, armorials, banners and celebratory decorations, which speaks to his decorative, detail-oriented artistic style. His most famous works include Madonna and Saints (1487) for the church of Santa Maria Maddalena at Castiglione del Lago, The Virgin and Child Between Two Praying Angels, and his Adoration of the Shepherds.
