How many details are needed to tell the story of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio?
Francesco Niccolini and Luigi d’Elia tell in their own way another fragment of the wild nature that is so dear to them. After White Fang, Moby Dick and Tarzan, they move away from great literature to sink into the most sublime and abysmal painting, that of Caravaggio. Caravaggio perfectly embodies the inseparable duplicity of the human being: both in his canvases in which he represents the sacredness of the themes and the humanity of the bodies through color and darkness, and in his life founded on a mixture of passions, betrayals, violence and escapes. But in all this the most important thing is the truth. Artistic truth, which means credibility, making what seems distant close. In his paintings Caravaggio seeks and finds this truth, making it concrete, visible and tangible.
