  • There was more than one Michelangelo? Absolutely. Michelangelo Merisi, the ‘black’ painter, better known as Caravaggio. During this walking tour, we’ll learn about his extremely interesting life on a visit to six of his works that can be found in the centre of the city.

    The churches of Santa Maria del Popolo, Sant'Agostino and San Luigi Dei Francesi all hold works from Caravaggio dating from the end of the sixteenth century to the beginning of the seventeenth century. This was a time when the Catholic Church was commissioning ‘uplifting art’ - highly ideological images of angels and heaven, garlands and abundance, but this was not Caravaggio’s style.

    Caravaggio painted ‘real life’ images; human beings plagued by fatigue, old age, sickness and misery. He painted torture and death. As you can imagine, this didn’t make him very popular with the church.

    We’ll tell you about his life and why he painted this way. His story is, in our opinion, probably one of the most fascinating stories in the history of art.
