Discover the wonders of the Baroque in Rome with three lengends of art: Bernini, Borromini and Caravaggio and learn how these artists reshaped the art and fabric of the Eternal City.
Join our virtual tour to get inside the mind of one of the most controversial geniuses in the history of art: Caravaggio, one of the most famous painters in Rome, a real bad boy of the Baroque era. His personal life was constantly marked by drama that is reflected in his paintings of brooding chiaroscuro and left an indelible mark on the world of European art.
Next we will admire the masterpieces of two greatest geniuses of the Baroque: Bernini and Borromini, whose rivalry has become legendary.
Bernini served eight popes and innumerable cardinals, he was a brilliant sculptor, an excellent architect, painter and stage designer and he changed forever the Roman skyline. He worked in many part of Rome to create fountains, palaces, churches, funerary monument and he is universally recognized as the last great Italian genius after Leonardo and Michelangelo. His best-known works include St Peter’s Square, the sculpture Apollo and Daphne in the Borghese Gallery, the baldachin inside St Peter’s Basilica,Barberini’s Palace and the Fountain of the four Rivers in Navona Square.
Borromini was one of the leading Baroque architects, a highly talented but volatile character. Borromini was the one who brought architecture to life by abandoning simple symmetry in favor of dynamic relationships. He refurbished St. John in Laterano and he created true masterpieces as St. Charles at the four Fountains and the Oratory of Saint Phillip Neri.
Are you ready for this? It will be a fascinating virtual tour to discover the marvellous masterpieces of the best Italian artists of the 17th century but also to know better the personality and soul of three of the brightest stars of the Baroque.
