Desenzano del Garda - May, 13 / October, 13 2019
The MilanoCard Group together with Medialart, in collaboration with the Municipality of Desenzano, present the Caravaggio Experience, from the 13th of May to the 13th of October 2019. An exploratory journey to unveil the techniques, themes and secrets of one of the greatest innovators in the history of art, hosted in the extraordinary frame of the Desenzano Castle.
Thanks to the direction of Stefano Fomasi, founder of The Fake Factory, a spectacular video installation will surround the audience with fifty-eight works by Michelangelo Merisi. An immersive initiative from an aesthetic point of view, but also from an emotional and sensorial one. The public will experience an innovative way of cultural fruition and the continuous flow of images will bring the artworks back to life, making them come out of their traditional frames.
The video installation is divided into sections, each of which will investigate a "Caravaggesque" theme: from his studies on the effects of light, to the analysis of compositional processes, passing through the representation of nature and violence up to a virtual tour in the places of the painter's life.
The world of Caravaggio will thus be re-proposed in a new way through an original media contamination: an experience that makes his extraordinary artworks come to life by freeing them from their traditional medium; an innovative way to tell adults and children about the life and art of one of the most important painters in history.
After the public success in Rome, Turin, Rimini and Mexico City, Caravaggio Experience arrives at the Desenzano Castle, thanks to the MilanoCard Group and Medialart that, with this initiative, confirm their will to offer to the public a high-profile cultural proposal, but also an experience that brings even the less experienced closer to the knowledge of the great master.
