Caravaggio Art Walking Tour - The Other Michelangelo - Private Tour

There was more than one Michelangelo? Absolutely. Michelangelo Merisi, the ‘black’ painter, better known as Caravaggio. During this walking tour, we´ll learn about his / her very interesting life. The churches of St. Mary of the People, St. Augustine and St. Louis of the French all hold works from Caravaggio dating from the end of the 16th century. This was a time when the Catholic Church was commissioning "uplifting art - highly ideological images of angels, heaven, lands and abundance, but this was not Caravaggio's style. Caravaggio painted ‘real life’ images; human beings plagued by fatigue, old age, sickness and misery. He painted torture and death. You can guess, this didn't make him very popular with the church. We'll tell you about his life and why he painted this way. His story is, in our opinion, probably one of the most fascinating stories in the history of art.

Private 2 Hour Walking Tour from Piazza Navona: Artistic Rome

The famous Piazza Navona is paved on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, built in the 1st century AD, and follows the form of the open space of the stadium. The ancient Romans went there to watch the agones "games), and hence it was known as "Circus Agonalis" (competition arena). It is believed that over time the name changed to in avone to navone and eventually to navona. During its history, the piazza has hosted theatrical events and other ephemeral activities. From 1652 until 1866, when the festival would take place, it was flooded on every Saturday and Sunday in August in elaborate celebrations of the Pamphilj family. The church San Luigi dei Francesi was designed by Giacomo della Porta and built by Domenico Fontana between 1518 and 1589, and completed through the personal intervention of Catherine de' Medici, who donated to it some property in the area. It is the national church in Rome of France. The three world-renowned canvases of Caravaggio are in Contarelli Chapel.

The masterful paintings of 16th-century artist Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), better known as Caravaggio, continue to fascinate more than 400 years after his death. The artist's paintings combine with gritty, realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, and make dramatic use of chiaroscuro. Today Rome hosts about 25 Caravaggio masterpieces that can be viewed by the public: several can be seen in the churches, others by some of the most important art collections in palaces and museums. Raffaello Sanzio known as Raphael was an Italian painter and architect of the High Renaissance. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, which forms the traditional trinity of great masters of that period. Raphael was enormously productive, running an unusually large workshop and, despite his death at 37, leaving a large body of work. Many of his works are found in the Vatican but also in some churches.
