The Festival of Italian Cinema has partnered with Cinemas UCI to present a cycle of documentary film dedicated to the greatest artists of all time.
Caravaggio: The Soul and the Blood (March 20, 19h)
An exciting journey through the life, works, and tortures of Caravaggio, a brilliant and controversial artist who, more than any other, gathered light and shadows, genius and disobedient, conceiving sublime works. The film is a narrative and visual excursion through the places where the artist lived and those who still today harbor some of his most famous works: Milan, Florence, Rome, Naples, and Malta.
