CARAVAGGIO AND THE ART OF MAYHEM
The life of Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio after the town of his birth, has previously been known to us only through the dates of his many court appearances and the recollections of his patrons.
Now at last the true story can be told by the one who knew him best of all; his lifelong companion Cecco, the beautiful boy from the slums of the Lido who inspired some of the greatest paintings of his age or any other.
It is a tale of ambition and intrigue, of subtlety and sensuality, and of a virtuoso genius scarred by murder and mayhem. It is also the tale of a love so strong that neither Time nor consequence could ever break it.
