There are just a few more days left to experience one of the most extraordinay exhibition of the Italian master Caravaggio in Italy. "Dentro Caravaggio" at Palazzo Reale in Milan presents an unexplored new perspective of the years of the artist's extraordinary production, under the light of a some new documents and more recent researches.

"Deemed as unique, this retrospective not only presents the public with works on loan from other major Italian museums, and from equally important foreign museums, but for the first time ever Caravaggio's canvases will be flanked by their respective radiographic images thanks to the innovative use of multimedia equipment, enabling the audience to follow and discover the artist's journey from his initial thoughts to the final achievement.

Through diagnostic methods such as reflectographs and x-rays, which penetrate to a different extent under the pictorial surface, it is possible to analyse Caravaggio's creative process, his idiosyncratic painting technique, his changes of heart, modifications and adjustments in composition".

The exhibition will remain open until the 28th of January.
