About The Event
Experience a cultural cornucopia of art, history, food and wine as we explore southern Italy through the eyes of a rebel artist. We will travel virtually, walking in the footsteps of Caravaggio through Rome, Naples, Malta and Sicily. A violent temperament, Caravaggio murdered a man in a sword fight and spent the remaining years of his life on the run. As he fled from one place to the next, he left paintings in his path. With vivid and gritty realism and dramatic lighting effects, he transformed pious religious imagery into action-packed scenes resembling a smoky film noir. We will study his work closely along with the novel artistic techniques and approaches he forged. Together, we will savor Southern Italian culture as we discover how Caravaggio revolutionized Italian art!
