Caravaggio's violent triumphs go high-tech in Rome

His depiction of Judith slitting Holofernes’s throat, blood gushing from the wound, has enthralled art lovers for centuries: now Caravaggio’s portrayal of seduction and betrayal can be “relived” at a high-tech exhibition in Rome. From the “Martyrdom of St Matthew” to the depiction of the youthful wine god “Bacchus”, the exhibition is intended as a “full sensory experience”, according to The Fake Factory, the video design company behind the project. Studies of works like “Judith Beheading Holofernes” have revealed Caravaggio’s painstaking adjustments — in this case slightly moving the partly-severed head from the body — and the exhibition uses outline sketches to explore form.
