Caravaggio lived in Rome for a while and here left some of his greatest masterpieces. He was definitely a revolutionary, a pioneer, an inventor of new painting styles and a trouble maker. He was shocking for the people of his times, who actually loved him.
Walking on his roman footsteps will allow us to get know and enjoy the Rome of the 1600's, which was definitely an elegant papal city, but was also the city who gave Caravaggio his favorite models : prostitutes, pilgrims, poor people, workers.
