Antonio Canova was considered the greats sculptor of his time and worked for Popes, Queens, and even for Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson, who commissioned him George Washington’s statue in which he is portrayed as an ancient Roman statesman. Canova embodied the ideal of classicism and the renewed interest in the roman empire art in the XIX century’s Europe, he is considered the greatest classicist sculptor, and his works are in the most important museums in the world: from St Peterburg’s Hermitage to the Louvre, from the Borghese Gallery to the Vatican Museums. We will discover his masterpieces and his legacy, from his origins in Possagno in the mainland of Venice to his works in Rome and the Vatican and his travels to France and England.
When Octavian Augustus became emperor after the Battle of Actium in 31 BC he had already been using the Story of the Origins of Rome and its mythology to carve a space in it for himself and his family. Historians often say that the winner tells the history, but in this case, as, in fact, in many other cases, the man winner is the one with the best story, and this is certainly true for Octavian and the Myth of Rome. We’ll explore how Augustus turned the Fields of Mars and central Rome into an urbanistic celebration of himself and Julius Caesar legacy. The Ara Pacis, the Pantheon, the Horologium, and many other urbanistic and architectonical features of the new Rome built for the Emperor blow the Gens Julia horn and celebrate them as the Family born from the sacred blood of the founders to rule Rome and make it the great ruler of the world.
Saint Peters Basilica in the Vatican is the world’s largest Church and a stark image of the Catholic Roma Church: Baroque splendor, pompous ceremonies, large crowds. But all these grandeur had humble origins: the Tomb of Saint Peter the Apostle originally believed to be a simple earthly burial, later transformed in a red shrine and eventually buried under the large Basilica build by Emperor Constantine, who sought in the new religion a fresh start for a national belief that could unite once more the Romans under a new faith, at a time when nobody believed and worshipped the old gods anymore.
We will enter inside the Pantheon, using both drone videos and 3d Models and pictures, that we will be able to navigate as if we were walking inside it, using a mix of high res pictures and other media we will be able to discover the many secrets kept by this 2000 years old ancient roman masterpiece. We will talk about Emperor Augustus, Agrippa, Hadrian, and the renaissance Masters buried here like Raphael, and as well the Kings of Italy. We will also explore the symbology and the hidden stories and part of the monument, as well as some lesser-known facts and anecdotes! An appointment not to be missed!
In 1508 Raphael started what was going to be his greatest and longest enterprise: decorating the papal Rooms by creating a painted summary of both Theology and History of the Church. Helped by a team of excellent Artists like Giulio Romano, Francesco Penni, Giovanni da Udine, Perin del Vaga and Many others Raphael used contemporaries like Pope Julius II and Leo X Medici as models for the frescoes, in which he also portraited himself and many other artists. We’ll virtually explore in detail all of the allegories and symbology of the frescoes including some hidden messages and figures, like the daughter of Pope Julius and many other historical and biblical figures.
Leonardo da Vinci is universally recognized as an Absolute Genius, way ahead of his time, and he embodies more than anyone else, the Italian Renaissance: Science, Technology, Study of Nature, Art, Architecture, Engineering, Poetry, Anatomy, Geology, Geography, there is no field of human knowledge that he left unexplored. Although he always wanted to be acknowledged mostly as a Scientist and an Inventor, in his lifetime he was mainly known and employed as a painter and architect, ad often as a military and infrastructure engineer, in which he excelled. Anyway, he was ambitious, and he sought to publish science and research books all his life, which were never printed in his lifetime nor till much later in the XIX century. This Virtual Experience offers an unusual look at the life story of one of the most gifted men who ever lived, a Great Italian and a truly inspiring figure, often only superficially known, who deserves to be better understood.
More than the Roman Forum or the Roman Baths, the Colosseum, and every other Amphitheatre, is now a symbol of the Roman Civilization: and image at the same time of construction and engineering perfection and of brutality and cruelty. This talk will also give us the chance to learn how the Gladiators lived and what was their life like and what was their way of thinking and their social status, besides the ‘legendary’ images created by Hollywood.
When the Vesuvius Volcano erupted many citizens of Pompeii tried to escape, but others seek refuge in their building and remained trapped with their belongings for centuries. Today over two-thirds of the city have been excavated and the bodies of those Pompeiians have been found, telling us their story, together with their houses, their temples, their thermal baths,
and thousand of objects, artifacts, statues, frescoes, mosaics. We will explore Pompeii in a narrative way bring back to life the Pompeiians and their stories up to their tragic end.
For Michelangelo sculpting and painting was not the making of an artwork, but to bring to this world something already existing in the Mind of God. So all his life Michelangelo’s main pursuit was to live up to this call, a mission that he carried out meticulously and fighting against anyone who stood in his way, from the Medici to the Popes. Michelangelo’s life will illuminate lots of its artworks and achievements, especially in the last years when he moved to Rome and also became the architect of the Basilica of Saint Peters.
