Inside Caravaggio: An Original Voyage from the Thought of the Artist to the Canvas

It is not everyday, that one can follow the entire creative process of an artist, scrutinising the re-workings, the regrets, the adjustments made during the course of composing a work of art. And it is for this reason that the exhibition held in Milan promises to be so much more. During what is being called “the top event of the year”, the canvases of the moody master will be flanked by x-ray images that will offer the public the possibility to follow, thanks to the use of innovative multimedia tools, the process of Merisi, from his initial thought to the creation of his work. Dentro Caravaggio, more than an exhibition is an immersive journey, helping to reveal a part of the human and artistic life of the artist, also thanks to documents from the Archivio di Stato of Rome and Siena. From the Sacra Famiglia con San Giovannino on loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to Salomé con la Testa del Battista on loan from the National Gallery in London, along with other masterpieces, among others, on loan from the Galleria degli Uffizi, the Musei Capitolini, the Gallerie d'Italia Palazzo Zevallos of Naples and from other important National collections, an overwhelming selection of works that is absolutely not to be missed.
