A blue and gold emotion
Benozzo Gozzoli. La Madonna della Cintola
Complesso Museale di Montefalco – untill 30 dicembre 2015
There are things that are so beautiful that, even looking at them for a moment, causing an intense emotion. That persists even now I try to tell about it. The brilliance of the colors, the proportions of the characters depicted, the overall balance, the spirituality of La Madonna della Cintola by Benozzo Gozzoli, painted around 1450, leave a mark in the minds. When I saw this shovel I thought: "Here, I have it in my house, to be able to see ... see ... see infinity".
Kept in the Pinacoteca Vaticana from 1848, after 167 years this precious shovel comes back in the Umbrian town of Montefalco in Umbria. In this way rejoin the cycle of frescoes that the author realized in the Chiesa di San Francesco. It is really worth a visit to admire it.
