I am honored to have been invited for the fourth time at the Foundation Cini during The Alpine Fellowship 2017. The greatest philosophers of our time will gather again with a small group of artists to envision the future of Art and Philosophy in a closed monastery. It is one of the most beautiful experience of my life to be part of the conversation for the past 4 years. For me to walk on the Palladian pavement in such company is like breathing the oxygen of a transcendental world. Each time I have the privilege to stay in this extraordinary gathering, the words of Schelling are beating in my heart :
'' I AM SPEAKING OF A MORE SACRED ART. AN ART THAT IN THE WORDS OF
ANTIQUITY IS THE TOOL OF THE GODS. THE PROCLAIMER OF DIVINE MYSTERIES.
THE UNVEILER OF THE IDEAS. I AM SPEAKING ABOUT THIS UNBORN BEAUTY WHOSE
UNDESECRATED RADIANCE DWELLS IN AND ONLY IN PURER AND ILLUMINATED
Schelling The Philosophy of Art ( 1804 )
