Il Gotico / Tirolo

Un profondo legame unisce il Tirolo allo stile gotico: il singolare corrispondere della nascita di questa regione come entità politica nel corso del XIII secolo con l'affermarsi in campo artistico delle nuove forme slanciate che suggeriscono il movimento, introdotte dal gotico. Il nuovo stile si radica con realizzazioni artistiche che non mancano di caratterizzazioni locali rispetto al  ...

Barocco & Rococò / Tirolo

Come in gran parte d'Europa, anche in Tirolo il Barocco giunse sull'onda dell'impegno controriformistico della Chiesa seguito al Concilio di Trento (1545-63), volto a rinnovare l'immagine del cattolicesimo. Ruolo fondamentale nella diffusione in questa regione retta da signoria propria fino al 1665, quando passò a far parte dell'Impero austriaco, fu svolto dalla Compagnia di Gesù fonda ...

Barock & Rokoko (Bayern Süd)

Mit Hilfe prunkvollster Interieurs wurde in Kirchen und Schlössern jedermann die Herrlichkeit göttlicher und weltlicher Ordnung vor Augen geführt. Und welches Land wäre besser dazu geeignet, den barocken Rausch der Sinne nachzuerleben, als Bayern, das wie kein zweites so nachhaltig durch die Barockzeit geprägt wurde, man ...

Les Omeyyades

Naissance de l'Art Islamique

Loin d'abolir la liberté des cultes locaux et de bouleverser les organisations urbaines existantes, les Omeyyades ont reconnu les langages esthétiques en vigueur à leur arrivée en Jordanie (41H/661 J.-C.), et en ont réinventé les formes avec une étonnante liberté d'expression. Pour brève qu'ait été leur hégémonie (moins de 90 ans), le rôle des califes omeyyades reste crucia ...

L'arte islamica in Portogallo

Il Portogallo sembra essere il luogo più propizio per sgombrare il campo da alcuni luoghi comuni con effetti devastanti. Ad esempio in questa regione della penisola iberica la prima grande interruzione traumatica di corso storico, non avvenne nell'ottavo secolo - epoca normalmente definita come periodo dell' 'invasione araba' - ma decisamente durante la Riconquista cristiana, con l'arri ...
