Twelve episodes on the life and art of Michelangelo Merisi. A journey through the works of a master about whom a lot has been said and written: Caravaggio’s pictorial revolution, his naturalism, adherence to truth, the game of contrasts, modernity. But also the relationship with the client and the world he loved to surround himself with. A life made of lights and shadows just like his canvases. From Rome to Milan, from New York to St. Petersburg, from London to Paris, from Naples to Syracuse, from Malta to the beach of Porto Ercole, where he died on 18th of July 1610 at the age of 39. An investigation based on the analysis of pictorial texts and documents. In the attempt to answer many of the unanswered questions about Caravaggio.
