The main challenge in presenting art exhibitions today is to give a contemporary language to the antiquities, D'Arelli says. "That's why we base all our projects on the design."

The largest showcase of Caravaggio art in China, the scenography of the exhibition is conceived by renowned Italian designer Aldo Cibic, who is also the co-founder of the Memphis Group and an honorary professor at Tongji University, and architect Joseph Dejardin.

Starting from the soft light of the first exhibition hall and ending with Caravaggio's dark world, the exhibits range from small and medium-sized paintings to huge exhibits and items from the Caravaggio Gallery.

To allow visitors to immerse themselves in the Baroque artworks, 38 musical pieces by Baroque composer Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643) will be played throughout the exhibition space.
