Caravaggio Beyond the Canvas is a theatrical, cinematic, narrative experience into Caravaggio’s life



Like in a theatre, four black boxes come to life to tell in a new, powerful way the life of one of the greatest painters in art history: Caravaggio.

The course unfolds itself in four acts, tracing the artist’s life chronologically through a sophisticated system of multi-projections, sensorial elements and an intimate narration that guides the visitors. One of the most sophisticated video mapping technologies – the creation of which required 360 hours of footage and an international team of over 50 professionals – has been used to give a face to otherwise invisible works. 

Over 40 paintings await to capture the visitors in their mysterious tricks of lights and shadows: be prepared to be amazed by the dark atmospheres, sometimes grotesque, of the most famous paintings, from a unique, cinematic, emotional point of view. The highlights of the life of the painter, the friendships and the loves, the tragedies and the successes are also reviewed, thanks also to video footages of his places of the soul: from his native village to the studio in MiIan, from the splendour of Rome to the flight to Naples and Malta.
