How could one of the most celebrated – and notorious – of the Renaissance Masters just disappear?

Historians can trace almost every detail of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s life, but strangely… his final resting place is a mystery.  Silvano Vincenti, Chairman of Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage, is on quest to find Caravaggio’s bones – and he’s going to start with a hundreds of bones found in a crypt in the village of Porto Ercole.

Why search this crypt?   What could have possibly brought the fiery and flamboyant Caravaggio to this small, seaside town?

The answer is a Museum Secret.
