CARAVAGGIO MURAL – Rome villa containing world’s only Caravaggio mural to go on sale

Spain, UK

The only known Caravaggio ceiling mural in the world has survived for centuries in a dark and dusty room of a Rome villa, but now the grandiose palace is up for sale to pay off the debts of its noble owners.

The oil painting of Roman gods Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto was created by Italian baroque master Michelangelo Merisi Caravaggio in 1597 and adorns a ceiling in Villa Aurora.EFE
