MONOGRAPHIC COURSE

The course aims to explain the artistic and existential story of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610), starting from the documentary data and the works related to him. Particular attention will be given to the reading in a naturalistic sense provided by the greatest art historian of the twentieth century, Roberto Longhi (1890-1970), starting from the exhibition held in 1951 at the Palazzo Reale in Milan. The historic exhibition will be retraced through a series of photographs of the exhibition that will allow to verify how much the relationship between the public and exhibitions has changed in the last seventy years.
