Haltadefinizione takes part in the exhibition “Nulla è perduto / Nothing Is Lost"
Facsimile copies of Caravaggio’s masterpieces bring to life the cycle of paintings in the church of San Luigi dei Francesi in Rome.
Haltadefinizione is taking part in the exhibition “Nulla è perduto” or “Nothing is Lost” which is open from July 4 to December 13 in the town of Illegio in north-east Italy. The exhibit includes premieres of new works, newly found works and reproductions of works that must not be moved or that are lost.
The exhibition begins with two facsimile copies, reproductions made with Haltadefinizione’s ultra-high definition Gigapixel technology. The Vocation of Saint Matthewand The Martyrdom of Saint Matthew by Caravaggio, are displayed side-by-side with a regenerated copy of the first version of his Saint Matthew and the Angel, executed by the artist Antero Kahila, the original of which was destroyed in the Second World War.
Luca Ponzio, founder of Haltadefinizione, explains: “Haltadefinizione’s goal is to bring value and attentionto our cultural and artistic heritage, by providing ultra-high definition “Gigapixel” images of great works. These can be enlarged to reveal much more detail than the naked eye could ever see. They also faithfully reproduce colors, tone and fine details better than any other reproduction. With this technology, it is possible to make faithful reproductions and prints of the works. These images can also be used for the promotion and diffusion of the works themselves, such as the show in Illegio. A show like this one brings together a multitude of forces, without which, it would be impossible. When a work can not be physically moved, or for whatever reason it can not be brought to an exhibition, a faithful ultra-high definition reproduction is the best possible solution.”
