The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Pietà by Michelangelo

One of the greatest works of art ever made is Pietà by #Michelangelo Buonarroti.

☞ Do you know…

‣ Sculpture is a symbolic projection rather than a truthful representation: #Madonna is in fact very young compared to the age she would have had when her son died, because it would correspond to the appearance of when Christ was conceived. According to the author, this choice shows that life faithful to Christianity preserves youth and the #beauty [of the soul]

‣ Michelangelo’s mastery was supported here by the quality of the #marble that he personally chose, commissioned by a French cardinal. The artist, only twenty years old, exploited the folds of the clothes, through a play of light and dark, to give “movement” and three-dimensionality to the characters. It was also inspired by previous editions of the same subject, such as #Pietà by Perugino, but totally innovating the posture of the bodies, in particular by intervening on the rigidity, thus making “their own” much more natural
