Ce lo domandiamo sempre, ogni volta che guardiamo un'opera d'arte, in ogni forma essa si esprima: da dove traggono ispirazione gli artisti? Quanto sono condizionati da fattori esterni e quanto scavano dentro se stessi per trovare la propria originalità? Anche guardando le sculture del portale maggiore di San Clemente a Casauria ce lo domandiamo: a cosa pensavano questi "maestri"? Da dove traevano ispirazione? Domani ne parliamo insieme alle ore 11 presso l'abbazia! Prenotate ai contatti di DADAbruzzo: 388/2408406 - dadabruzzo libero.it

"Entry of the troops of King James I of Aragon through the door of Medina Myurka", the 15th-century altarpiece by Pere Niard. #ConquestOfMajorca ______ Since the peace negotiations failed, James decided to continue the battle and this time, he planned to break down the walls and towers in order to end the war as soon as possible. However, the siege was so difficult that when the Christians opened a gap on one of the walls, the Muslims erected another wall made of stone and lime to cover it. __ Finally, after heavy fightings for months, on December 31, 1229, James I managed to take over Majorca. The initial moment occurred when a gang of 6 soldiers managed to place a banner on top of one of the towers of the city and began to signal to the rest of the army to follow, while shouting, "In, in, everything is ours!" The rest of the Christian army then followed and entered the city shouting, "Santa Maria, Santa Maria!". __ It is reported that, after taking the city, the Christians apprehended the Muslim leader Abú Yahya and tortured him to make him confess where the pirates kept their treasure (since Majorca was used to be the safe haven for Muslim pirates). They even cut the throat of his 16-year-old son in his presence. __ At the same time, they burned the city and slaughtered the people who had failed to escape. The slaughter was so widespread that the resulting thousands of corpses could not be buried; as a result, the Christian troops were soon depleted by a plague epidemic due to the putrefaction of the bodies. #PartFour

«Era questo Cristo come deposto di croce, sostenuto dalla Nostra Donna entrando sotto et aiutando con atto di forza Niccodemo fermato in piede e da una delle Marie che lo aiuta, venendo mancato la forza nella madre, che vinta dal dolore non può reggere; [...]. Opera faticosa, rara in un sasso e veramente divina; e questa, come si dirà di sotto, restò imperfetta et ebbe molte disgrazie; ancora ch'egli avessi avuto animo che la dovessi servire per la sepoltura di lui a' piè di quello altare dove e' pensava di porla.» - G. Vasari, Le Vite Pietà Bandini, Michelangelo Buonarroti, 1547-1555 . . . . . #firenze #florence #michelangelo #buonarroti #michelangelobuonarroti #pietà #museoduomofi #piazzaduomo #firenzeduomo #operafirenze #scultura #sculpture #marmo #marble #toscana #tuscany #visittoscana #igerstoscana #beniculturali30 #culturalheritage #igers_firenze #historyofart #art #vasari
