An improbable investiture

A day dominated by the impulsiveness:  Investiture of Caravaggio deleted! 


By Egizio Trombetta. What really happened on the day of the investiture (which failed) by Caravaggio.. After appropriate checks I decided to make public what happened that day. Investiture yes/investiture no. Delays, tension, spites: Caravaggio lost a chance? But it made sense to give him a Knight of Malta post-mortem? Article made in collaboration with e Caravaggio Pittore Maledetto. In the video, Monsignor Sandro Corradini contributions (with English translation), Maurizio Marini, Giuseppe La Fauci, Federica Gasparrini and Grand Prior Fra' Giovanni Masi. Italian version. 


 15.09.2010. In those days, the days of the anniversary, last July, many people have heard of post-mortem of the investiture of the Order of the Knights of Malta to Caravaggio. The investiture was supposed to take place Saturday, July 10, 2010 in Principina, in the province of Grosseto.  The ceremony was scheduled for 7.45 pm after the conference held at the convention center "La Fattoria Principina." The conference, organized excellently in my opinion, at least in intention, by Grand Prior, Fra' Giovanni Masi and by the architect Giuseppe La Fauci. The conference had international speakers such as Professor Maurizio Marini, Monsignor Sandro Corradini, the architect Giuseppe La Fauci and Professor Federica Gasparrini. Everything seemed perfect, that day had all the ingredients for a memorable day, at least in the affairs regarding the Caravaggio. What was important is that at the end of the day Michelangelo                             
Merisi  was to become again, but post-mortem, a Knight of Malta. So it was not. Professor Marini is came late, the Grand Prior, Fra' John Masi, annoyed at the delay of Maurzio Marini, has not allowed a reasonable time for his speech.  Why? To punish Marini for his delay? But the Grand Prior knew who he was Professor Marini? Frankly I do not know, but I do not think. "Cut" Marini was a mistake, especially for the fact that there was plenty of time. My protests to the Grand Prior has further worsened an already untenable situation. Investiture deleted! But this investiture made sense? Do you know what were the reasons for this "operation"? They weren't certainly to pay homage to the master, though it seems, as stated by the Grand Prior Fra' Giovanni Masi interview (available in the video in this post), was for a good purpose. Having said this I add that I am convinced that the Grand Prior is a very good person, although maybe a little bit impulsive, as I am ... and how was our beloved
Caravaggio. Among the speeches of the day stands out among the valuable contribution of Monsignor Sandro Corradini - in the video his speech is translated in English - what advice to follow carefully. Corradini bears witness of his documentary, and says "The search is still open. From the documents of criminal type is so much information. A search is underway and this year we will have good surprises. And then there are the archives of Naples, which should reveal many of the last events of his life”. From a document recently found himself entertaining the speakers with the identikit of Caravaggio. He concluded his speech with an ominous phrase: "He wanted to become very Knight Malta, but was probably the cause of his death." Corradini, contacted on September 15, 2010 clarified that his words would not convey the direct responsibility of the Knights of Malta. By the end of the year, research completed, we will know what surprises us still reserving our Caravaggio, but with documents in hand.

Cerchiamo di essere ben chiari! La suddetta associazione dei 'Cavalieri
Ecumenici di Malta' non e'il vero e antico Ordine dei Cavalieri Ospitalieri,
nati come Cavalieri dell'Ordine dell'Ospedale di San Giovanni di Gerusalemme,
quindi conosciuti come Cavalieri di Rodi e in seguito come Cavalieri di Malta,
cioe' lo SMOM = Sovrano Militare Ordine di Malta, riconosciuto anche alle
Nazione Unite, ed unico erede della storia e della tradizione dell'Ordine
Gerosolimitano. Pertanto ogni nuova investitura creata dall'associazione dei
cavalieri ecumenici 'lascia il tempo che trova'.Povero Caravaggio... la
speculazione non finisce mai.
