23 Mar CARAVAGGIO experience
Caravaggio Experience, a powerful and totally original video installation, adopts a contemporary approach to the work of art to explore Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s artistic career. The use of a sophisticated multi-projection system on a massive scale, combined with an original musical score and permeated with fragrances, takes visitors on a unique sensoral journey based on total immersion in the art of this 17th century master.
The aim is to allow visitors to observe and to explore Caravaggio’s work in true depth through a flow of emotions triggered by pure sensoral enjoyment, thus helping to draw a broader audience of experts and non-experts alike to appreciate his work in an absolutely novel fashion.
The original musical score is by Stefano Saletti, while the fragrances have been designed and supplied by the Officina Profumo – Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella.
