Grandi Giardini Italiani


ENDS1 October 2017
Saturday, March 18th reopens Reggia di Venaria with a multisensory exhibition dedicated to one of the most famous Italian painters: Michelangelo Merisi well known like Caravaggio.

Caravaggio Experience is an original video installation presenting the works of the famous master Michelangelo Merisi in a dazzling contemporary display. Using a sophisticated large-scale multi-projection system combined with evocative music and olfactory fragrances, the exhibition creates a unique artistic and sensory experience in which the visitor is ''immersed'' in the artwork of the 17th century master.

In the grandiose architectural setting of Juvarra's Citroniera at La Venaria Reale, the visitor is invited to engage in a 50-minute projection and music show that accompanies the whole display, without interruptions and in loop, where 58 works by the great painter are evoked.

The installation presents the main themes of Caravaggio's entire production: light, naturalism, theatrical staging, violence. It ends with an ideal ''journey'' through the places where he lived, following chronologically the main phases of his incredible life.

Let's visit one of the most finest places of the network Grandi Giardini Italiani.
