closed Caravaggio Experience

The show

It is an extraordinary journey, enveloping and emotional, which winds through immersive video installations, animated visits in period costume, Baroque sounds, fragments of paintings that materialize in small sets: here is “Caravaggio Experience. The escape and the investigation ", which opens on Sunday 22 December at 6 pm at the Sant'Elia Foundation, in via Maqueda 81, a project carried out by the Sant'Elia Foundation in collaboration with the Casa del Musical Production, Medialart Srls, Tourism Sports Department and Performance of the Sicilian Region, Metropolitan City of Palermo.

The Mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando says: "Palermo once again makes culture its strong point, demonstrating a willingness to give continuity to a process that has begun some time ago, and that continues step by step. An example is also "Caravaggio Experience", which confirms attention to the most innovative artistic languages>.

The Superintendent of Palazzo Sant'Elia, Antonio Ticali, underlines the importance of collaborations with private individuals: .

During the inauguration, which will be open to the public, the actors of the Casa del Musical under the direction of Marco Savatteri, will perform three replicas of the show specifically created for "Caravaggio the Fugue and The Inquiry", dedicated to the history and life of the painter, between escapes, duels, loves.

Performances - in period costume - will take place at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm.

During the opening of the exhibition, the other dates and times in which to watch the performance are: December 27th, 17-18-19-20; December 29, at 17-18-19-20; December 30, at 17,18,19,20, December 31st at 12-13-14.

"Caravaggio Experience" is conceived as a subjective and emotional experience for the visitor, a show of projections and music with a total duration of approximately 45 minutes, which runs along the entire route, without interruption, and in a continuous cycle.

Immersive art is an art form that uses digital technologies, video projections, music and sounds to engage and immerse the viewer in a fully emotional experience.

One of the distinctive traits of Caravaggio's art, on the other hand, is his constant attempt to break down the barrier between painted space and real space, to obtain the maximum involvement of the viewer.

A special involvement that is made possible by the use of an entirely innovative projection technique: "Caravaggio Exprience" through the use of Canon video projectors and the Infinity Dimension-ooD system developed by Medialart in The Fake Factory laboratories, represents from the point technolgically a milestone in the realization of immersive video installations.

The use of projectors with a system of liquid crystal panels on silicon makes it possible to process clear and crystal-clear images, preserving the visibility of the smallest details. The images are homogeneous, characterized by perfect gradations of color, completely eliminating the effects of pixels or lattice, giving perfect and vibrant shades of color and the visual rendering of a uniform brushstroke.

The video installation in which the spectator will be immersed, has as its purpose precisely that of breaking down the barrier between painting and the public, to let the viewer literally enter the space created by the artist, also through the aid of graphic and cinematographic animation techniques that invite the public to interact emotionally with pure vision.

The video installation is divided into a series of "rooms", as if they were both architectural spaces and musical themes, each of which is linked to a Caravaggio-like subject.

Six rooms in a row, on the noble floor of the Sant'Elia palace: we start with an educational room and introductory to the path, which prepares the viewer for the vision and involvement, which
