Rinascimento visionario: Giovanni di Paolo tra i surrealisti

Research Seminar
L’intervento intende ricomporre la fortuna critica e la memoria visiva di un artista senese del Quattrocento in ambito surrealista: dalle pagine della rivista «Documents» alla mostra Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism al MoMA di New York, l’interesse crescente per la pittura ‘eccentrica’ di Giovanni di Paolo è esemplare dell’osmosi che esiste tra storiografia e arte moderna e interroga le dinamiche che definiscono questo scambio in termini di riscoperta critica, appropriazione culturale, intertestualità visiva.

Media Involution and Political Conflict in Fifteenth-Century England

Over sixty years ago, Curt Bühler, curator of rare books at the Morgan Library, mused, “The fifteenth century, it may well be said, was one of the most curious and confused periods in recorded history. Not the least curious and confusing of its aspects is the story of the book production in that century.” While Bühler was reflecting on the impact of print, his comments apply well to England’s situation, which, for the most part of the fifteenth century, remained unrocked by any media revolutions.

Con l’inizio degli anni Cinquanta, la ripresa degli studi di Cinecittà come luogo della produzione coincide con il racconto cinematografico del suo stesso impatto come macchina dello spettacolo. Allo stesso tempo Roma, con la sua espansione urbanistica e trasformazione edilizia, continua a essere esplorata sebbene in discontinuità con l’esperienza neorealista. Gli studi di via Tuscolana, le scalinate di Piazza di Spagna, le consolari che collegano il centro con le aree più periferiche, il nuovo Ponte Marconi, sono solo alcuni dei luoghi di Roma resi iconici e animati dalle reti affettive e sociali attivate dal racconto filmico di questo decennio.
