Giuseppe Nuvolone’s mythological paintings shed new light on the painter’s relationship with the brescia cultural setting in the last years of the 16th century, expecially with Fortunato Vinaccesi, man of  letters and scientist, and the scholar Giulio Antonio Averoldi. the article specify a singular and unpublished correspondence between iconography and philology research and literary productions, in the  height of the Lombard baroque. these correspondences have to be read in scientific perspectives and new concepts of the universe, where myths are interpreted in the name of science, especially towards  astronomy, which has become an essential part of the new world view. In addition, the new course of research in the reinterpretation of mythology and above all the parallel astronomical explorations,  open to an unprecedented “love discourse”, in accord to the prolific season of melodrama to the point of presenting synaesthesia with the inventions of librettists and musicians.
