Caravaggio returns to the province of Trapani thanks to an exhibition entitled "The Scream and the Light: meeting with Caravaggio", which will be held Sunday, January 21 at 18.00 at the Hotel Tirreno (Erice-Pizzolungo).
The exhibition recounts the creative journey undertaken by the great Lombard artist Michelangelo Merisi, known as Il Caravaggio, through the exhibition of 31 masterpieces displayed in five thematic rooms.
The title is very significant, because it wants to express the great evolution of thought and technique that Caravaggio has done in his works and in the complex search for a hidden, intimate truth that only a sensitive soul can undertake; in fact, those who visit the exhibition are invited to capture in his works the most intimate aspect of the painter and understand what he wanted to express in the pictorial representation, perhaps becoming a participant in the same representation.
The scream means the drama of human existence and the tragedy of reality, while the light that bursts, does nothing but annihilate what is negative.
Curator of the exhibition is the prof. Roberto Filippetti, professor of literature in Venice and of iconology and Christian iconography at the European University of Rome.
For years he has traveled around Italy to prepare adults and children in the great meeting with the beauty expressed by the art of great artists, such as Caravaggio.
As we said at the beginning, Caravaggio returns to the province of Trapani after ten years since some of his paintings were exhibited at the Pepoli Museum, on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the passage of the famous painter in Sicily.
On that occasion, a work attributed to him for the first time was exhibited for the first time: "I Bari".
Returning to the exhibition on Sunday, January 21 we remind you that you need to book if you want to participate in a moment of conviviality at the same Hotel Tirreno.
