The life and times of Caravaggio, one of the most famous renaissance painters, is highlighted through a new exhibition in Rome.

More infamous rather than famous, Caravaggio seems to have lived a turbulent life as his passionate character lead him to a series of events where violent arguments, crime and debauchery were performed on a regular basis.
