“Dante in the shell of a walnut” by Museo Divino, Sophia Women Project Towards Beauty and Virgil’s Song 14 at the Domus Ars ai Decumani
In this year so full of events dedicated to Dante, the association “Progetto Sophia. Women towards Beauty ”proposes to“ explore the warmest and closest aspects to our “feeling” of Dante’s work, with particular attention to the artists madly in love with the Divine Comedy ».
Therefore “a small and clumsy Dante, a little lost and a little haggard, who resembles all of us much more than the surly and majestic poet who often terrifies us: this is the poet who will accompany us on Sunday 14 November in an afternoon of readings, visions and reflections in the beautiful setting of the Domus Ars. The Russian poet will lead us on this first path Mandel’stam rash, who dedicated beautiful and imaginative pages to Dante, through the voice of the equally imaginative cantor Vinicio Capossela», Whose Dante tour first touches Salerno on Thursday 11 November.
On the occasion also an announcement from the Divine Museum of Naples: in the early months of 2022 the Olschki publishing house of Florence will publish a volume dedicated to the tiny Divine Comedy in a nutshell by the Stabian priest artist Antonio Maria Esposito, created by the association in collaboration with the Illuminated Dante Project with the patronage of the MIC and with the participation of distinguished guests from the Universities of Naples, Pisa, Turin and from Museo Rodin Paris.
And Capossela himself has kidnapped the Decumani museum – currently undergoing restoration and refurbishment – which provides visitors with magnifying glasses to admire spectacular reconstructions of the salient steps of the Divine made in the space of a walnut shell, shells made incredibly vast by the mastery of the priest-sculptor. Precisely on that occasion Capossela and the director of the Silvia Corsi Museum discovered the common passion for the Russian poet Mandel’stam rash.
