Ecstasy - Estasi

by Mimmo Mallamo January. 18, 2012 3433 views

Music: The Butterfly (feat. Dolores O'Riordan) []
Great art is meant to inspire, to create ecstasy. The finer the quality of this ecstasy, the finer the art. Art that is less than pleasing is merely nice.

La grande arte è fatta per suscitare, creare l'estasi. Più fine la qualità di questa estasi, più fine l'arte. Solo l'arte minore si contenta del piacevole.

(Ezra Pound)

Parma, Italy. Sanctuary of Santa Maria della Steccata.

Your point about art is very well taken, Mimmo...and very well illustrated! I was in Parma, but I missed this one... shame, isn't it? I will have to correct this situation, ASAP!
