Caravaggio. The contemporary.

Where? Mart Rovereto


From an idea by Vittorio Sgarbi

The exhibition in Rovereto, offers the opportunity to contemplate the Burial of Saint Lucy, the oldest Sicilian work by Caravaggio, normally located in Syracuse, in the Church of Santa Lucia alla Badia.

The exhibitions scheduled for autumn at the Mart in Rovereto are a journey through the centuries, with a fascinating idea that guides the schedule: all art is contemporary. Thus, classical and modern masters interact with each other and with the works of one of the richest public collections in Europe, in search of connections between history, great masterpieces and the languages of the twentieth century. The other contemporary proposes the opening in succession of three major exhibitions dedicated to Caravaggio (October), Boldini (November) and Depero (December).

Caravaggio. The contemporary

Through the proposal of different levels of dialogue, the exhibition highlights the spiritual relevance of Caravaggio, the Lombard genius. The seventeenth-century masterpiece resonates in a selection of contemporary works and photographs.

The work the Burial of Saint Lucy is placed in dialogue with some precious works by Alberto Burri, master of Informal Art. In a constant dialogue between images, symbols and similarities, the exhibition is completed by a large painting entitled I naufraghi (1934) by Cagnaccio di San Pietro, works by the artist Nicola Verlato and photographer Massimo Siragusa, and a few shots that focus on the life and death of Pier Paolo Pasolini.

The exhibition is enriched by a programme of events: shows, performances, meetings, presentations in collaboration with Centro Servizi Culturali Santa Chiara and Nuovo Cineforum Rovereto.
