Together we discover the Baroque Rome with its masterpieces heretical and scandalous, as it appeared in the eyes of contemporaries; learn to read his paintings and to evaluate them as open windows on the society of the time, faithful representations of the life of cardinals, immersed in a daily life of luxury homes and relationships "dangerous", as well as that of the common people (prostitutes, courtesans of fame International and young boys from their exemplary life) used as templates and realistically portrayed in painted religious subject "of the damned."

Our route will take us to admire the beautiful works in the churches of Santa Maria del Popolo, Sant'Agostino and San Luigi dei Francesi through places frequented by the painter himself in everyday life: the house where he lived, the taverns where he got drunk and had fun, also assoldava the characters we see today in his famous paintings.

We will visit Pallacorda where Caravaggio killed his enemy Ranuccio Tomassoni an episode which happened near the end of his troubled existence which forced him to leave Rome in order to escape the death sentence that hung over his head.
