Malta, Siracuse, Messina, Naples,

Porto Ercole. 18th July 1610.

Four years on the run,

so many labels on the luggage...

and hardly a friendly face, always on the move,

running under the poisonous blue sea

running under the July sun.

Adrift...

Salt water drips on my finger

leaving a trail of tiny tears on the burning sun.

The fisherman carrying me high

on their shoulders.

I can hear you sobbing,

Gerusalemme.

Rough hands wore my dying body...

..snatched from the cold blue sea.

They are lowing me back to the village,

their breath warm on my blue lips.

and dying in time of the splash of the oars

If arms steady as this embrace me and live !

to think Gerusalemme,

our friendship should end in this room...

..this cold white room so far from home !

The stars are the diamonds of the poor.

The richman hides the diamonds in walls...

..embarrassed to compare over the riches of

the Lord, the spark in the sky

WHISTLE:

The gentlemen is confering a

great honour on our family.

Be faithful and honest, like the men of our country.

Bleah !

Poor dumb Gerusalemme,

not used as a shepherd !

You look to true St Jhon

brought from the wilderness !

I told you the colours, and how

to brighten...

..the blood red cinnabar

and dirty grease grounded poppy and linseed.

The art of priming, glazing with soft squirrel brushes

My companion in my loneliness !

Now I am counting the sheep

on the hill side of our house.

Pasqualone sometimes comes to move me.

his hand ? my hair...

..like the ripples

of the bottom of the ocean.

Far below my mother wears

a white sheet.

Bed time, Michele. Michele !''

Her voice floating like the silver mask

beholding the evening hand.

My true love Pasqualone, laughs.

Bed time Michele of the shadows

Returns holy home. the stones

clattering under our feets...

..the white sheet is

swallowed in the twilight.

''Pasqualone!''The mountains echo.

Then the darkness comes.

How much?

- Fifty.

Thats deep

- Have you more at home?

It will cost you !

Oggetto d'arte !

E io sono molto caro !

ln plain english mate, Im an art object

and very, very expensive

Is that your money worth?

RlDE

I built my world

as divine mystery..

..found the God in the wine

and talking to my heart...

..I painted myself as Baco...

..and took on his feets: I wild

orgiastic dismenberment !

I raise this fragile glass

and drink to you my audience.

Mans character

is his feet ?.

Why did you paint the flesh

so green?

I have been ill all summer,

Excellency.

- Is true to life.

- And art?

- It isnt art.

- I see.

A most interesting idea.

What is your name?

- Michelangelo da Caravaggio.

- Michelangelo ? Michelangelo...

''No hope, no fear.''

The motto is rather extreme.

and the knife is illegal.

The price of the painting is my knife

I see

Show me the painting.

What have you written on the music ?

''You know that I love you.''

''Safe... to they like believe...''

''..that nothing is impossible...for you.''

''Think yourself... immortal...''

''..and capable...of understanding...''

''..all arts,

all sciences...''

''..the nature...''

''..of every living thing.''

''..than the...lowest deep.''

''Most higher,

than the highest pied ?...''

''..descend lower...''

Eraclito predicted from glimpse...?

''The way up and the way down

all one and the same.''

Bruno is repeating an old truth

in new lenguage.

That is the task.

Simple you could say...

..but nothing is more difficult

that simplicity.

Matter is in life...

God all this quotes! I can build the terror ? with them

perhaps he talks himself to sleep.
