Caravaggio, born Michelangelo Merisi, has entered history due to his paintings of dramatic intensity. Despite his work being admired, there was harsh opposition towards his extraordinary realism in painting human beings. Due to his passionate personality, he encountered more than several conflicts with people around him, as well as with sponsors and the law. One of his foremost artistic twists was the extreme contrast between brightness and darkness, light and shadow. Mauro Bigonzetti is one of the leading choreographers of Italian ballet, which freed itself from the predominance of mainly classical opera companies in the 80s.
