Tondo CorsiniWe report an interesting initiative that does not directly affect the popular music but also leads to the idea of ​​music as a cultural behavior. And most of all music as a symbol and instrument of expression. It is “Colors and sounds. The Enchantment of an encounter: Andrea Mantegna, from Camera picta of Mantua to Parnassus to Isabella D’Este’s study “, the initiative by the Foundation Ranieri di Sorbello, which will take place at the Foundation’s headquarters in Piazza Piccinino in Perugia. The event is free admission and will take place in two rounds. The first is scheduled Friday, March 6 and will focus on the theme “Passion for the old. Andrea Mantegna, Camera from picta of Mantua to Parnassus to Isabella D’Este’s study”. The second will be held Friday, March 27 on the theme “Restlessness and oddity. The Tondo Corsini The Madonna and Child with St. John the Baptist and Angels by Filippino Lippi”. Both events will be coordinated by Stefano Ragni (Conservatory and University for Foreigners of Perugia and Member of the Board of the Foundation Ranieri di Sorbello) and manned by Emidio De Albertis (Academy of Fine Arts “Pietro Vannucci” in Perugia) and Stephen A. Graziano (musicologist). As you can read in the notes, the work of Andrea Mantegna (1461-1506) is famous for its ability to “study and play Antiquity so evocatively faithful and for his painting in which a triumphant architectural illusionism -spaziale aimed at the expansion of the real by daring perspective views”. In particular, The Parnassus “is a perfect example of evocation of the classical myth (Apollo and the Muses, although long it was thought, for Apollo, Orpheus, witnesses of forbidden love, but graciously accepted, Venus and Mars: love pleasing to the council of the gods except in Vulcano, legitimate wife of Venus)” and, in general,”the complex iconography and the exquisite workmanship of the work themselves constitute an encouragement for the idea itself connected to harmony (even music of the Renaissance”.
