CARAVAGGIO (2007) by Angelo Longoni
with Alessio Boni, Paolo Briguglia, Elena Sofia Ricci
Michelangelo "Michele" Merisi, born into a humble family in the town of Caravaggio (from which the future artist would derive his professional moniker). Cursed with a violent temper, Michele becomes as well known for his brawling as for his art, frequenting the seamier side of Rome and using its prostitutes and thieves as models, even for his religious paintings. Eventually, his art creates a fervent group of admirers, while his personal life establishes an equally dedicated battery of enemies.
