This is how Francesco d’Errico begins his speech, which he will deliver on Wednesday, October 18, at 3.30 pm at the Textile Museum of Posto, as part of the City University’s program of popular culture. «In later eras – he explains – brilliant figures from Greek, Roman and Islamic civilizations They publish many works on mythology, astrology, and philosophy as causes of the appearance of breast disease; We talk about Hippocrates, Aesculapius, Galen, all the way to Vesalius and Renaissance figures with a series of historical images and comments all the way to current breast medicine.”
Sinology, viewed as a pictorial art, is actually a development of the image of women in their physical appearance and in their social role in accordance with the historical period and the ability and will of the artist.. “The pictures are flowing From the Middle Ages to Christianity – He continues – which re-presents the lost symbols of fertility and motherhood. In country churches between 1300 and 1500, paintings of the Madonna del Latte by Lippi, Leonardo, seem to emphasize the proximity of the Madonna to the faithful in the most intimate work. Archbishop of Milan Carlo Borromeo in the second half of the 16th century focused on nudity as an act of disrespect for the Madonna, who appears dressed in lavish, heavenly clothing in works by Botticelli, Beato Angelico, and Raphael.
He concludes: “The700 It is the century of women’s liberation who from a submissive housewife became the heroine of the literary salons with the “cicisbeo”; The paintings are reminiscent of the beauty of Greek mythology and the bold clothing is a symbol of social pomp and wealth. In the contemporary era “Women, through the images of photography, social life and relationships, become a symbol of security, independence and struggle.”
