Einstein from science to art with the works of Luisa Angelucci

November 25 was a special day in the history of science: the most caring scientists remembered and celebrated this date Including Albert Einstein, in 1915She presented to members of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin the final version of the theory of general relativity, the theoretical construct that pushed forward the frontiers of human knowledge.
The Encyclopedia Museum, with a small party in the private residence of Castel Azzara, celebrated the anniversary by presenting a preview of an exhibition of works by Luisa Angelucci inspired by the biography and works of Albert Einstein.
Angelucci is an artist with international experience, originally from Ascoli Piceno and recently returned to Italy after more than a decade spent mainly between London and Berlin, the capitals of European culture where she had the opportunity to become acquainted with seminal places. From the life of the great physicist. He is working on an art project dedicated exclusively to the figure of Albert Einstein: a project that began 10 years ago with Einstein in Blue, a large 1.45 x 98 canvas that now belongs to a private collection, and which continues with the creation of acrylic-on-canvas works dedicated to the universe and the planets of our system. Al Shamsi which currently sees a close-up of Albert Einstein in the style of “Great Faces” is in progress, a series to which the painter has already dedicated great figures of world culture and which has already been successfully exhibited.

The observation of space, galaxies, stars and planets also reminds us of other projects of the young artist: even when she produces works of a completely abstract nature, the drops of color, splashes and brush strokes remind us of the magnificent movements and above all the infinite lights of stars. From the universe. The work that Angelucci deserves to highlight is his film “Mercury” pictured in the images on this page. Why was Mercury one of the first works by the painter from Ascoli dedicated to Einstein? Precisely because through the new field equations given by Einstein on November 25, 1915, he explained the causes of anomalies in the orbit of Mercury, which could not be explained by Newton’s law of gravitation, and gave an initial confirmation of the quality of his exceptional work, which was followed by countless others. But Mercury also, in alchemical thought (for many pre-scientific scholars because it is introductory and preparatory to the experimental sciences, and for others still contemporary), is the element that connects Earth and space, and therefore its artistic representation takes on a double value and double value. meaning.

Giorgio Baresi, the Italian Nobel Prize winner in Physics in 2021, and thus Albert Einstein’s direct heir in honor of the very prestigious award, also celebrated the 108th anniversary of the presentation of the theory of relativity by publishing it on social media. The media published a post referring to this event in detail. Having mentioned Giorgio Baresi, we cannot help but remember that November 25 also represents a very important anniversary for him: on this day 10 years ago, November 25, 2013, the Italian physicist went to the Quirinale to receive Giorgio from the hands of the President of the Republic of Italy. Napolitano received the Nature Prize for mentorship in science, which preceded his Nobel Prize win by a few years.

Luisa Angelucci Gallery It will be held in two different locations in Toshiya, for which there are ongoing agreements: In a great location 16th-century palace designed by Ascanio Sforza in Brusinowhich has already hosted the Pentalogy of the Encyclopedia Museum for 12 months, from 2022 to 2023 (an initiative that has received a great response from the public and reopened the magnificent Sforza halls after the forced hiatus due to the pandemic), and at the heart of Viterbo, in Via Savi, in the newly created Anatomia dell’Arte gallery by Irina Larichevathe Ukrainian artist and entrepreneur who again exhibited her work as part of Pentalogy for the first time in Italy last year.

Professor Alfredo MarianiThe founder of the Encyclopedia Museum explains the interest in Angelucci’s artwork dedicated to Einstein as follows:The Encyclopedia Museum targets not only humanities, but above all science and teaching its methodologies. I am convinced that the world of education would be in dire need of an intimate exposure to scientific research, but unfortunately this is not the case. I find it ridiculous to think that our secondary schools do not include the study of epistemology and research methodology as independent disciplines, while students and their teachers are burdened with a bureaucracy revolving around courses, corsets, and initiatives that fragment opportunities for learning and cultural growth. . Therefore, the celebration of great scholars is welcome, especially if, as in this case, it advances the universal message of art, which always includes students of all ages. It is planned to establish a scientific research methodology laboratory in our museum itself, which I hope will be established when we find a specific location“.
The programs and times of the two exhibitions will be monitored permanently.
