Zielen van Naples (Souls of Naples)

Description:

Goethe’s statement “See Naples and then die”, from his mid-18th century trip to Italy, remains indelible. One more time it is a foreigner who understands and appreciates Naples beauty with its contrasts and social and architectural variety and gives an original interpretation. The central element in Zielen van Naples is the painting The Seven Works of Mercy by Caravaggio, the master of chiaroscuro. This altarpiece was painted in 1607, commissioned by the noblemen who founded the Pio Monte della Misericordia, a charity institution still active to this day. The legends on this painting, the history of the Pio Monte, the joy and the pain of the Neapolitans, alternate and combine within the dark/light counterpoint of Naples different souls.
