Download E-books La lunga avventura dell'arte. Il tesoro d'Italia. PDF

By Vittorio Sgarbi

"C'è un'Italia protetta e remota a Morano Calabro, a Vairano, a Rocca Cilento, a Vatolla, a Giungano, a Torchiara, a Perdifumo, incontaminati presidi del Cilento. Poi ci sono le apparizioni. Come gli affreschi di Sant'Angelo in Formis, come il duomo di Anagni con il quale si apre il racconto pittorico di questo libro, anche se i primi segnali della lingua nuova, diretta, espressiva, sapida, sono nella scultura, a partire da Wiligelmo a Modena in parallelo con i primi vagiti della lingua italiana. Quei confini nei quali sono ristretti a coltivare i campi, cacciati dal Paradiso terrestre, Adamo ed Eva. Poco più tardi vedremo altri contadini affaticati, di mese in mese, nel Battistero dell'Antelami a Parma. Soltanto a Ferrara il lavoro sembrerà riservare una imprevista felicità. Il Maestro dei Mesi trasmette il piacere che ha provato estraendo fanciulli dalla pietra. Siamo nel 1230, in largo anticipo sul ritrovamento della vita nella pittura, prima ancora che in Toscana, nel cuore della Valle Padana, a Cremona, con il racconto delle storie di Sant'Agata di un maestro anonimo; non sarà un caso che los angeles nuova lingua toscana in pittura si espanda fino a Padova con Giotto nella Cappella degli Scrovegni, e di lì in tutto il Nord. Siamo in apertura del Trecento, e diventa lingua universale quella che ha iniziato a parlare Giotto, ponendosi davanti le energie dei corpi e los angeles loro azione..." (Vittorio Sgarbi) Introduzione di Michele Ainis.
