Bergamo's airport takes its official name from the famous painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, whose major works were created in the artistic centers of Baroque Rome, Naples and Sicily in the late 16th and early 17th century. Caravaggio trained as a painter in Milan, where he studied under Simone Peterzano. He was as famous in his lifetime for his outrageous lifestyle as he was for his stunningly beautiful paintings and his influence on the art world has been immense, having an impact on the way artists like Rubens, Bernini and Rembrandt painted in later years, particularly in the way they used light in their works.

One of Caravaggion's most famous paintings, Supper at Emmaus, painted in 1606, is housed in the Pinacoteca di Brera and is a highlight among Italy's art collections, a must-see for any art lover visiting Milan. For art lovers planning departures at Milan Bergamo Airport that include genuine works of art or antiques, there are strict customs and excise rules to follow, but it is unlikely anyone will be permitted to leave with a genuine Caravaggio painting as part of their luggage!

Most museums and art galleries sell some very good reproductions and there are plenty of excellent reference books on one of Milan's most famous former residents that contain very good facsimile of his works. A coffee table book of Baroque painters makes for a wonderful reminder of the time spent among Milan's cultural riches.
