CARAVAGGIO in ROME

Caravaggio.
I think there’s anything to say.

But since we are, let me give you some addresses where you may admire the Caravaggio paintings in Rome.

CARAVAGGIO in ROME
Start from the Santa Maria del Popolo Church, in Piazza del Popolo, and you will find two of his finest works: The Conversion of St. Paul and the Martyrdom of St. Peter.

Go to Via del Corso and planned a stop at the Galleria Doria Pamphili, to admire the Rest on the escape into Egypt.

Continue towards the center, Piazza Navona, and visit St. Luigi dei Francesi Church, where you could stay long to admire the Calling of San Matteo, but if you have little time, go to the nearby Church of St. Augustine, to see the Madonna of the Pilgrims.

There are other sites where you can admire Caravaggio, as in the Galleria Borghese

The power of the gaze: Raffaello

Just a stone’s throw from the Trevi Fountainthe National Gallery of Ancient Art, in the Palazzo Barberini, restored last year, with its 34 rooms, is a beautiful setting for exhibitions and events.

Today I suggest you, a very interesting exhibition: Raffaello meets Raffaello.
Two famous works of Raffaello, Portrait of a Young Man (the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum) and La Fornarina, are compared.

Works apparently so different, they hid a common thread: the gaze.
