This, I think is the best way to describe Bach.
Baroque music, finds full expression in his works full of energy, full of virtuosity.
Actually this music, created for other instruments, will find its full realization, in the piano.
If you love the piano, then, do not miss the concert of tonight, Homage to Bach, of Alexander Tharaud, young French talent.

European history is fascinating. Each country can tell us his personal tradition, made up of conquests, wars, pain, peace treaties, economic booms and misery, and art, art, art and more art.
One of the artistic periods, more coy, is undoubtedly that of Art Nouveau. In Rome, in the early ’20s, exploded the Art Nouveau, and began to appearbeautiful stained windows glass, painted on fire!
Eclectic art, at the beginning, offered mainly medieval figures, to meet the demands of the bourgeoisie. But soon after, appeared geometric shapes and natural themes. The windows became important decorative element of the domestic spaces.
You may see an example of the Art of glass is the ” CASINA DELLE CIVETTE ” ( “House of the Owls” of the noble Torlonia family) that currently has become the Museum of Liberty Stained Glass.

Here you can even see the evolution of the artistic technique, admiring the light that illuminates swans, peacocks, owls and migratory birds, butterflies and roses… that come to life from those wonderful windows.
In addition, the park where the CASINA DELLE CIVETTE is , is really nice….

“Putting on the same line of sight, the heart, the mind and the eye.”
This was the thought of Henri Cartier Bresson, the great photographer of the moment and eternity!
This exhibition is a journey between his art and the memories of his best friends, the thoughts of other great artists, historians, photographers and intellectuals who knew him
The exhibition is titled in fact, Images and Words, and narrative voices will accompany you as a guide.
The artist who knew how to make a seemingly insignificant moment, a masterpiece…
I love the black and white, even if it seems easier, not at all.
Here are his ten lessons for “photos from the road”:
– Focusing on the geometry – Be patient – travel – Be faithful to a single goal – Photographing children – Not be intrusive – Look at the world as a painter – Do not cut photos – Not develop the photos yourself – Think of the next photograph.
Cartier Bresson was not jealous of his pictures, like all geniuses, he was generous…

Italy is a country in constant turmoil art, too often overshadowed or forgotten….
In this context the European Institute of Design of Rome,the IED, is the protagonist of this exhibition that I’d like to suggest to you:
SINGOLARITA’ MOBILI CHE ABITANO UNO SPAZIO NOMADE <Individual moving into a space in continuous motion>
In the historic Villino Corsini, in Villa Pamphili,(marvelous contest) a selection of emerging artists has led to the creation of this event: a video research about Italy from the seventies to today, through various artistic languages.
Starring the visual arts, short films, but also theater and music.
I suggest this unique exhibition: The Blind is a space – of Evgen Bavčar
Evgen Bavčar images are a real challenge to his blindness, the age of twelve. Enhances the difference between looking and seeing with deep sensibility as a photographer whose works are shaped by his memories and impressions of the world, creating “visions of the soul” dreamlike, and exciting.
His photographs have the scent of Slovenia and express the memory of space, light and shapes of his childhood.
When asked how he photographed, he replied:“You must not ask how, but why I photograph. I photograph in relation to noise, smells and especially in relation to my experience of light. Then I choose my photos, thanks to the advice of friends with their eyes free from personal obsessions. “
Among the cool events of the season, I suggest you try at least once a “Musical Aperitif” with THE GREAT SYMPHONIES!
An unusual appointment that offers a guide to listening, accompanied by a tasting of some sought-quality beers with cheeses and other specialties!
The pianist and musicologist Giovanni Bietti, will introduce the public to the knowledge of the topics and authors that recur throughout the season, symphonic and chamber music, of the Academy of St. Cecilia.
