We believe that to have a true experience of historical sites, it is necessary to bring to life - on the spot - the ideas, emotions, and rhythms of life that shaped the lives of our ancestors. Through an awareness of their political, social and religious struggles, and through the culture and the personalities of great artists, we approach the past as though it is alive once more in the present. Only in this way can we carry back to our everyday lives, to both our intangible and tangible worlds, a living experience that touches the heart and enriches the mind. This is the task that we are resolved to fulfil.
In the same way, to have an experience of art, one must immerse oneself in a painting: in the story that it tells, in its colours, in the strong emotions with which it was painted, and in the relationships that are developed on canvas between the people depicted there. To comprehend Michelangelo’s Pieta, one must come to know Michelangelo and the great revolutionary ideas of the Renaissance; one must discover how in the Renaissance, for the first time, the embrace between the Madonna and Christ is presented as intense and human. This solid embrace is represented by Michelangelo in the most dramatic moment of life: when Mary holds between her arms the body of her dead son. With this fantastic sculpture and this tender and enigmatic embrace, Michelangelo reinforces the mystery or faith – for the believers - in the earthly passage of the Son of God and in our human and divine nature.
This is our mission. We sincerely believe that the experience of art can enrich and illuminate your life and that art can put us in contact with a wider humanity and help us to encounter other men as well as our deepest selves.
