Rome, Scuderie des Quirinale

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Scuderie des Quirinale and 400 years since the death of Michelangelo Merisi, alias Caravaggio, the artist’s seminal works come together in an extremely concise exhibition; it focuses exclusively on the artist's "capital" works, namely, only those works historically ascertained to be by the master's own hand.

The result is a consistent and stringent exhibition that sheds new light on the various stages in the development of Caravaggio's tortured artistic career. It includes many of Caravaggio's most representative works, including the Bacchus from Florence's Uffizi Gallery, the David With the Head of Goliath from the Borghese Gallery in Rome, the Musicians from the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Lute Player from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Amor Vincit Omnia from the Staatliche Museum in Berlin, and numerous other masterpieces from many of the most important museums in Italy and around the world.
