You can leave it in Italian ("pieta," with the accent-grave on the "a"). Although the most renowned example of the style is Michelangelo's late 15th-century marble sculptural group, "pieta''" is also the generic name for paintings depicting Christ in his mother's arms after his descent from the cross. The phrase "Una Pieta' cinquecentesca" with reference to a painting simply indicates that a work on this theme was painted in the 16th century (i.e., the 1500s). -- HTH, HC
