The wedding at Cana: the forgotten history of a famous canvas
How Paolo Caliari buried the great master Giorgione for a second time under the colors of his palette, and the swings of the protagonists of the monumental work that marveled Europe for centuries.
The work recounts, in a literary tone, the rugged and laborious remodeling of the central scene of the painting from its beginnings to the providential arrival of Ortiz, along with the vicissitudes and misadventures suffered by its author.
Las Bodas de Cana: la historia olvidada de un cuadro famoso
De cómo Paolo Caliari sepultó al gran maestro Giorgione por segunda vez bajo los colores de su paleta, y de los vaivenes de los protagonistas de la monumental obra que durante siglos maravilló a toda Europa.
La obra relata, en un tono literario, la accidentada y laboriosa remodelación de la escena central del cuadro desde sus comienzos hasta la providencial llegada de Ortiz, junto con las vicisitudes y desventuras que sufrió su autor.

Il Veronese and Giorgione in concerto: Diego Ortiz in Venice
We are proposing that the Spanish musician Diego Ortiz is represented in Paolo Veronese’s famous mannerist picture "The Wedding at Cana". Specifically, we suggest that he is the person who seems to be making comments to Veronese, as the conductor of a viola da gamba ensemble. Presumably, the author of the picture represents the musician as one of the most significant contemporary exponents of this instrument. We derive our proposals and conclusions from the few available biographical data of Diego Ortiz, his portraits in his treatise and in Veronesne’s canvas, and from an analysis of the repeated and unsuccessful trials in the literature to identify this personage.
We also suggest that the Venetian painter Giorgio da Castelfranco (named Giorgione), was represented in the initial design of the painting at the position of Ortiz and then painted over.
El Verones y Giorgione en concierto: Diego Ortiz en Venecia
El ensayo propone que el músico español Diego Ortiz está retratado en el famoso lienzo manierista Las Bodas de Caná de Paolo Caliari, concretamente en el rostro del personaje que parece hablar al oído del autorretrato del propio Veronese, en tanto director de un conjunto de violas da gamba. Conjeturamos que el autor representa al músico como uno de los mayores exponentes contemporáneos de este instrumento. Nuestras propuestas y conclusiones están basadas en los pocos datos biográficos existentes, en el grabado que le retrata en su propio tratado, y en el retrato que proponemos suyo en la obra de Veronese, junto con los repetidos y hasta ahora infructuosos intentos en la literatura para aclarar la identidad de este personaje. Proponemos igualmente una identificación razonada para el rostro que ocupaba el lugar de Ortiz en el diseño original, el pintor veneciano ya fallecido Giorgio de Castelfranco, también llamado Giorgione, el cual fue sustituido por el de Diego durante la realización de la obra.
