Energy Thoughts Beauty. It’s all connected
Italy is a republic founded on art and beauty: one could also affirm that it is a republic founded and refounded by artists. In one of the vaults of Assisi’s Upper Basilica, at the end of 1200, Cimabue, wrote “Ytalia” in the margin of a painting of a city, almost certainly Rome: a very early affirmation of the existence of Italian civilization. With this mark, Cimabue sanctioned that national boundaries are artistic before political and that national identity is made up of classic and humanistic culture, pagan beauty and Christian spirituality.
