Francesca

Bringing Rome to You!

We will virtually walk on the footsteps of Michelangelo Merisi aka Caravaggio using google earth mixed with other visual aids! We’ll start from Piazza Navona and then visit 3 stunning churches: San Luigi dei Francesi, San’Agostino and Santa Maria del Popolo and “see” 6 original paintings by the master!

We will walk in the alleys where he lived, loved, worked and….fought until he killed someone!
It will be an opportunity to discover not only his art also his adventurous life (and explore the city centre of Rome at the same time).

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, best know as simply CARAVAGGIO, was not only a painter, but a “star”!
His adventurous life, full of sensational events, and his revolutionary style made him an undisputed leading figure of Italian art: you can find out everything about on our Caravaggio Experience

He came to Rome in 1597-98 in search of fame and died at the young age of forty in exile, banished by the Pope after committing murder. Caravaggio lived a short, dramatic life and knew the city of Rome in all its aspects, including the violent, sketchy and dangerous ones.

You will hear the stories about his friends, his loves, the models he chose among the poorest in the city, his favorite restaurants and much more!
If you can’t come to Rome, Rome will come to you and, remember, there is always time for questions and there is no stupid question!

My Background

Ciao! My name is Francesca and I have a passion: Rome! I was born here, I studied art history and I love sharing a lot of interesting stories about the incredible life of Caravaggio that I learned over the years at university and as a guide! Why choose me? Because I believe art must be for everyone and my recipe is: no boring history lessons but super high quality experience! Fun, exciting facts, incredibly beautiful places and..Caravaggio! I am a licensed tour guide, a highly qualified art historian, a professional who knows EVERYTHING about this unique artist nut more than anything else I love to share it!
I am also expert in involving people of different ages so you can join the tour with your children if you want!

The Setup For the Virtual Session

I'll be in my apartment in Rome and you'll be in yours everywhere in the world. All you need is a computer with audio/video functioning and a microphone if you want to interact and ask me questions. I have reconstructed the real tour I usually do walking so this will not be a lesson but a virtual walk on Caravaggio footsteps. We'll enter churches, walk in the alleys and be "outside" in Rome together!
