Marco Bertozzi. La tirannia degli astri
The frescoes in Palazzo Schifanoia
THE REPRINT OF THE SOLE EXHAUSTIVE PUBLICATION ON THE MEANING OF THE FRESCOES OF PALAZZO SCHIFANOIA
The Salone dei Mesi of Palazzo Schifanoia, with its mysterious astrological representations, represents the most precious and secret place of the early Renaissance.
Here we can admire the cultural atmosphere of an entire erain all its possible articulations.
Even today, we can be “enchanted” by this unique and refined pictorial cycle, as happened to Aby Warburg, who was the first to identify the source of the astrological band in the Latin version of Albumasar's Arabic treatise.
A mysterious cosmos, which readers can return to understand and decipher, thanks to the careful and well-documented reconstruction provided by the volume by Marco Bertozzi. This new edition shows many the spectacular images of the Salone dei Mesi in a new and brilliant guise, the fruit of the photo campaign taken after the recent restoration of the Palazzo.
