Il Profilo di Caravaggio - il genio e l'uomo

Il Profilo di Caravaggio - il genio e l'uomo

Art collective in homage to Caravaggio, with digital animation room in virtual reality. 

Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio, is to the history of art, as the inventions of fire, of sailing, of the engine, are to scientific progress. The Profile of Caravaggio-the genius and the man is proposed as an exhibition-homage to this figure who, more than central, would rather be said to be indispensable in the story and in the evolution of the same relationship between humanity and art. A highly selected group of artists, among the most representative of the contemporary scene, will be asked to re-read his works, be inspired by his works or his life, recover their technique and essence, giving life to a collective that reflects his genius and soul. 

An absolute immersion and a definitive exploration of the artist and man whose tireless work has changed the very concept of painting by establishing new and universal cardinal points. For these reasons the challenge is irresistible. Mediated through personal style and sensitivity, each artist delivers "his" Caravaggio to the visitor's eye. Which, crossing temporal boundaries and dogmatic fences, sublimates itself through metaphysics, surrealism, conceptualism and Pop Art. Feeding that virtuous circle that is inherent in the concept of art that generates art.

The project in memory of Caravaggio, who sojourned and perhaps died in the seaside town, was therefore born "The profile of Caravaggio, the genius and the man".
