The underground card players from “I Bari”, by Caravaggio, lose a card. A young onlooker, from our time, comes near. Is he approaching the cheaters, those who gamble and decieve even though playing card games for money in Milán is forbidden at the time? Or is he moved by the poor innocent boy, who still hasn’t realized he’s the victim of a con, a Trapola?
The creation of a new plane of reality, one that connects us with Caravaggio’s time and today… ¿To act how, exactly?
