- Spot! guided interpretation of a work
from 12 march to 11 june 2010, at 9 p.m.
And off we go with the third spot! event, a date for the guided interpretation of a work of art. On the occasion of the exhibition "Caravaggio", four encounters to retrace the vicissitudes of the Milanese painter: from his first attempts in the workshop of Simone Peterzano, through the influences of Lombardy culture and on to the Roman period, when the stylistic features of an artist who loved "to paint naturally" were defined. Then the Neapolitan period when he reinforced his style also in relation to the autobiographical element that would be a feature throughout his work. It's this relationship that we want to confirm and reinforce, accompanying visitors to discover, with the artist, the force of reality.
