On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the death of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio in 1610, Rome hosts a collection of his major paintings in the exhibition that takes his name “Caravaggio”, on view at the Scuderie del Quirinale from February the 20th to June the 13th.
The artworks spans Caravaggio 18-year career, but rather than put in chronological order, they have been arranged in a theme-based route. There are only authenticated works, historically credited by the hand of Caravaggio, and all dubious attributions ascribed to his school have been excluded.
The exhibition includes absolute masterpieces from all over the world: Amor vincit Omnia from Berlin, The Musicians from New York, The Lute Player from St. Petersburg, Baccus from Florence, Supper at Emmaus from London, and David with the head of Goliath from Rome are among Caravaggio most representative works.
The exhibition is held under the high patronage of the President of the Italian Republic, and organized jointly by Palaexpo and MondoMostre, in cooperation with the Ministry of Heritage and Culture.
Hours: Sunday to Thursday from 10.00am to 08.00pm, Friday and Saturday until 10.30pm. Admission is allowed up to one hour before closing.
