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.

The school of Athens

Remaining on the subject of the past few days: the greatest representation of philosophical matter is the fresco “The School of Athens” by #Raphael which depicts all together the most famous thinkers and mathematicians of antiquity.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The two protagonists in the center are #Plato, on the left with the robe highlighted by our bright red and Aristotle, that is the two philosophers who have laid the foundations of Western thought.
The artist represents his characters with other #faces for example for Plato he uses that of Leonardo da Vinci to further mark the allegorie. In addition to them, there are another 56 figures on the scene, including a self-portrait by Raphael himself


‣ The design of this #painting stems from the desire to strengthen, in the eyes of the community, the relationship between classical #culture and Christianity. Therefore the interpretation of “The School of Athens” – exaltation of rational #thought – cannot be separated from the fresco that is found in the same Vatican room but on the opposite wall: “Disputation of the Sacrament” which in fact treats faith and #theology
