Simon Starling – La Decollazione (The Decollation)

June 14 - November 4

Part of an ongoing investigation into the torrid events surrounding the realization of Caravaggio’s Maltese masterpiece, The Beheading of St. John the Baptist (1608), La Decollazione (The Decollation) has been produced on a journey from the North of Italy to Sicily that tracks the trajectory of Caravaggio’s life. This journey, made with a tiny Ape Piaggio Pentarò articulated truck, involved accumulating the raw material for the production of all the pigments used in the making of Caravaggio’s painting.

Opening Hours:

Tuesday – Thursday, 10:00-12:00, 16:00-19:00

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 – 19:00
