General Admission  $10

Journey through the life, works, and struggles of
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. His existence, no
less than his art, was characterized by light and
shadow, contrasts and contradictions, genius and
sobriety. A revolutionary artist, he was often not so
beloved by his contemporaries.
In search of luck – or perhaps in search of himself – he
travelled Milan, Venice, Rome, and Sicily, escaping the
enemies and demons he found at every turn, giving
shape to masterpieces such as Bacchus, Boy with a
Basket of Fruit, Saint Catherine, Judith Beheading
Holofernes, and David with the Head of Goliath.
Featuring a previously unseen reconstruction of the
original location of the Madonna dei Palafrenieri,
thanks to Vatican approval.​

Runtime: 90 minutes
