Exhibition July -

EXHIBITION THE CARAVAGE - THE POWER OF LIGHT POSTPONED (initially scheduled 17 July to 6 September 2020- New date to be confirmed)

Exhibition of several masterpieces of Caravaggio and "his disciples"

The light that comes into contact with the bodies, and unleashes their inner torment. An asceticism from the abyss of shadows and evil to the light of God and truth, the one who wanted to dare where others did not even dream. A creative parable of the painter, but before that of man. His torments, his demons, his inwardness. Some of his masterpieces from museums and private collections will be on display, accompanied by works by so-called "followers". Those who dedicated their lives and their artistic work to the lesson of the Lombard master, without ever, and for no reason, being able to abandon it. The exhibition will be supported by an international scientific committee of absolute importance, chaired by Mina Gregori, who, above all others dedicated her life to the studies of Caravaggio, continuing for over half a century the work and rediscovery of the incomparable Roberto Longhi.
