  • The Marche region is one of the least known of Italy despite its beauty and art treasures that collects. For some time the Marisa Bellisario Foundation had decided to play our usual autumn annual meetings to Macerata where we were received by the city authorities with exceptional hospitality. Among the various initiatives to entertain us we were given the opportunity to visit the palazzo Buonaccorsi of which I knew almost nothing. The imposing construction is at the center of Macerata and dates back to 1701 when Pope Clement XI granted the investiture to conte to Simone Buonaccorsi who wanted to give his family a Palace worthy of the importance gained. The building, designed by Giovan Battista Contini is the result of compaction of more buildings and was completed several years later by Ludovico Gavaskar by adding an inner courtyard and a garden which is a balustrade. On the main floor there itself an extraordinary succession of salons decorated with mythological subjects, notable examples of Baroque and Rococo, which reaches its maximum expression in the great gallery called hero's exploits inspired paintings of the Aeneid Virgil. The Palace also houses an interesting collection of modern art (from the macchiaioli, futurists, the "Roman school"), the library "Amedeo Ricci" and a fine collection of vintage carriages so that brushed aside the Palace is referred to as the "Museum of carriages". While the exit still giddy from the medieval streets, driving experience that sometimes offer unique glimpses (the rolling countryside of rolling hills, the smell of the sea near ...) I wondered what they would do if they owned a small town like this abroad and not surprisingly I came to mind "small town" by Thornton Wilder, describing the harmonious charm of everyday life and what a privilege it is to live in a world like the one where I was moving , made of feelings of solidarity and of people who easily meet, they know each other, greet each other and maybe help if necessary. In short, the harmony of the time is wasted, not enriched by cultural events of international importance that Macerata Opera Festival offers each year as the Jazz Festival and an excellent (and beautiful) Universities that run up the guys from many parts of Italy that closed the books, found in the festive square measure of their youth. A few days after we left the earthquake shook the Macerata and I cannot but remind everyone of the obligation that we have to defend such grace and civility.
