CARAVAGGIO PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR – ROME GUIDES
CARAVAGGIO TOUR – ROME GUIDES
The Caravaggio Private Tour aims to allow the analysis of Caravaggio’s pictorial work, which has given the city of Rome an unmissable series of paintings, six of which are hosted in three churches. So, the Italian painter known as the “master of light”, who spent 12 years in Rome, will have no more secrets for you!
We will literally travel in his mind, trying to read his personality to understand every single secret of this special artist, famous all around the world for his art.
The tour will start with the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo where, in the Cerasi Chapel, two beautiful paintings depicting the Conversion of St. Paul and the Crucifixion of St. Peter are exhibited.
After that, it will be time to move on foot to the Church of Sant’Agostino where, on the altar of the first chapel on the left, there is the famous Madonna dei Pellegrini, dated between 1603 and 1606, represented with crudely realistic details.
Finally, the Tour of Caravaggio will give you the opportunity to visit the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, which probably contains the three most famous Caravaggio’s works in all of Italy: the Vocation of St. Matthew and the Martyrdom of St. Matthew, executed between 1599 and 1600, while St. Matthew and the Angel is dated 1602.
In addition to it, the route will also develop among the most famous places of Caravaggio’s tormented Roman interlude, until his rocambolesque escape after the murder of Ranuccio Tomassoni.
