Where the art begins?

You’ve seen quite a few ancient ruins?

But maybe, you’ll also run into cute characters and over the top, like the artist who often “exhibits” in front of the Ara Pacis Museum!

He has a solo show, you may visiting and strolling along the wire that leads from one work to another…

Eclectic character, a true artist!
Now, with classical music appointment.
So, go straight to Piazza Navona to hear the piano concert, with music by Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Liszt.

The virtuosity of the Piano:Bach

Creativity.
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.

Arts and extravagance often go together.

Arts and extravagance often go together.
Not always, sometimes, when the end is only the search of wonder, then, even if the artwork can be interesting, certainly not remain in history.

Instead, when the genius is revealed, it remains recognizable, unique and distinguishable.

This was Dali.

An eccentric with a great imagination, known as a painter, but less as a writer, catalytic of the Vanguards currents, illustrator, designer and filmmaker, set designer and passionate about science.

In this exhibition, Italy is the leitmotif of all exhibited works.

Art Nouveau and Liberty Stained Glass at Villa Torlonia Museum

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 appear beautiful 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.

English: Coat of arms of House of Torlonia, Vi...

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.”

“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…

A bit of fairy tale in Rome!

As soon as time will grant a truce, I recommend a visit to this fabulous area of ​​Rome: the Quartiere Coppedè.

English: Quartiere Coppedè in Rome
Image via Wikipedia

Named after the architect who designed it in 1913, seems straight out of a storybook ….

Every street is filled with a strong Art Nouveau, with Gothic, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque variations…

A very special combination of patterns that make the facades of the houses very impressive, redundant with decorations.

Among all, the Villino of the Fairies, only the name suggeststhe incredible stylistic expression of the facade!

Believe me, this neighborhood is like a bit of  fairy tale in Rome!

The Blind is a space – of Evgen Bavčar

I love art and therefore whilst photography.

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. “
