Vocazione takes the reader on an illuminating journey through the heart of the Eternal City, where a visit to the church of San Luigi dei Francesi forces two people to re-evaluate the basis of what they believe in and mean to each other. Moving between and examining in close detail the iconography of Caravaggio's The Vocation of St Matthew and Graham Greene's The Third Man, it is the story of a modern relationship, which provides an off beat and original look at the ambiguous figure of the artist re-imagined in the context of film noir. Through the work of Graham Greene and Caravaggio, Vocazione brings to life two very differnt cities both modern and ancient, to form a contemporary picture of human behaviour, where cinema and art combine to illustrate the redeeming power of memory.
