ARTE - CONFERENZA | SAN GIROLAMO SCRIVENTE

A public talk on Caravaggio’s Saint Jerome Writing by Fr Marius Zerafa OP

The talk will be in English and free admission.

Fr Zerafa, former Museums’ director will talk about Caravaggio’s painting and will recount the intriguing story of its theft, retrieval and the restoration. In all this, the Embassy of Italy played a very fundamental role by bringing two experts to help out in the investigation and its retrieval. The Embassy also provided a military plane to take the painting to Rome for restoration. He will also talk about Caravaggio’s “Beheading” and how in this case as well two Italian military vessels transported the painting to Florence for restoration.

On this special occasion, Fr Marius Zerafa will donate one of his latest works – a full size copy of Caravaggio’s St Jerome to the Italian Cultural Institute, as a token of appreciation for the Embassy’s cooperation for the restoration of the 'St Jerome' and the 'Beheading' and the Italian Cultural Institute’s collaboration in bringing to Malta impressive exhibitions such as the 'Bronzetto italiano' exhibition held in the Palace in Valletta, the 'Carra''exhibition, the one by Maccari and many others and the support over the years in the form of scholarships to enable him to follow Art studies in universities in Florence, Milan and Venice, and for assistance given to so many of his students..

The talk and Q&A will be followed by a cocktail.

Free entrance. First come first serve basis.
