La grande bellezza dei Musei Capitolini Immortalata dall'obiettivo di Marcello Grassi

Thin, pungent, admittedly fellinian, with sudden and violent tones, but so intensely true and strive to understand also the details more seedy and the most popular 'superstructure' of relationships between people and especially in certain social contexts, where to passepartout are certain labels, certain phrase books, attitudes, masks.

"The great beauty" of Sorrentino exudes all of this is the intricate circle of these lives and these narratives is inserted in the context of the City par excellence, the immense and eternal Rome.

Breaks the breath the parentheses that Sorrentino crop within the film, dedicating it to a nocturnal tour of the most beautiful 'palaces' of Rome, and in this fleeting tour also appear the Capitoline Museums, and some works between which the Dying Gaul, tragic and suffering in its dense shadows.

The Capitoline Museums are a real treasure trove of wonders very often neglected by a public much more attentive to rigid and standardized stages from tourist travel package.

In this regard, it is among the photographic project "Anatomy of the time", the artist Marcello Grassi, which takes in his shots, the entire texture cold, candida, smooth of marble, with veins and grooves that form monumental bodily volumes that lacks only the blood in the veins and dynamic shooting in the tendons, the evidenced by strong chiaroscuro and contrasts between light and shadow.

The ability of Marcello Grassi to extrapolate the whole truth in these works, and their aspects more human and surprising, even through trivial shadows that show or hide the lineaments, or glimpses special cuts and violent of shots.

Everything goes back to the oxymoron of the distracted society and of the artistic heritage of the city:

"The scant inconstant glimpses of beauty. And then the squalor and woeful man miserable".
