  • In the unfinished opera par excellence, not only of Michelangelo, but Western classical art. The grand old man, in "Saturday of Sunday since" subbiava "di Carnovale is still" the marble, with the chisel, the marble with whom he engaged in a struggle lasting decades to bring out the shape from the material, intelligence from the chaos. Fight won? Yes and no. In extreme carving, destined never to be understood for decades to centuries (but is really, we've included, or we do is projecting Giacometti on Michelangelo, making it a disservice to one and the other?), the Titan Supreme Supreme depicts the victory and defeat. There is an endless tiredness, contagious, heartbreaking, in the Rondanini Pietà, in the back arched, Gothic, stone just chipped stone, which becomes the front view in the most sublime mess of plastic art of all times: two faces of the Virgin, looking in different directions (one barely perceptible in the veil), two different, the first of which, that Cristi mighty, heroic, Michelangelo, survives only a Herculean arm suspended in a vacuum While the other, exhausted, teenage and senile at the same time, blends with the body in a regressus ad uterum suspending Mother without precedent in the history of the Visual Arts. That boldness, and that fatigue, when "it is finished". Seem to hear it resonate among the subbia l "Es ist vollbracht" of Bach's St John passion. I'm so tired and I want, ultimately, to return the child, risprofondare in the body warm, gracious, the mother once again in the manger, changing bandages and diapers, to become nurse, getting blow on the body by the ox and the donkey. The Rondanini Pietà is also, paradoxically, a Nativity, which stages once and for all the inevitability and the scandal of the sacrifice, the disappointment of the story, is another Gethsemane asking that the Cup has moved away, knowing full well that you cannot, you need compassion, consolation. Isn't this, after all, compassion? Watch asssoluto abandonment of the body of Christ, especially the 15-year-old legs, smooth, slender, polite, look at the inside of the right knee, and perceived, in your right knee, that abandonment exhausted, that mortal fatigue. Nature WINS: nobody really Michelangelo, neither before nor after, forcing the Viewer to perceive either Donatello, plastic work not with the eyes, or with the mind, but in the depths of your muscular and nervous tissue. It is served that immense sacrifice? Ask to your right knee.

  • Michelangelo's last work, unfinished because of supervening death. A lesson in how it enhanced a work of such importance. Placed in the Hall of the Spanish hospital, the statue is the sole and undisputed star. Stunning impact, seeing her from behind and gradually you can see from all angles. Well lit, you can photograph until memory camera and observe without any limit. Council, before joining, read the presentation broadcast documentary in the Hall of the National Museum of ancient art.
