22 Dec-29 May 2011. This exhibition is the last to celebrate the fourth centenary of the death of Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio (1571-1610). It reconstructs the studio of the great Italian painter in Campo Marzio, where he lived and worked for 14 years, in an attempt to evoke the atmosphere of the time. With lenses, mirrors and optical tools it reconstructs how Caravaggio achieved his noted sense of light and shade with special techniques normally used in the 16th century only by scientists. Despite the impressive bibliography on Caravaggio many of his artistic techniques still remain a mystery and are the subject of extensive international studies. The exhibition is designed to better understand the methods, tools, mechanisms and creative processes that inspired Caravaggio during his time in Rome. This exhibition is accompanied by a series of weekly conferences on Caravaggio at Palazzo Venezia from January to February 2011.
