Description

English summary: "The great panel, finished, now dominates on the High Altar of the cathedral, in Siena, my beloved homeland, the city of the white and black shields which seem eternal. A great procession and a heavenly music have accompanied it through the streets of the city, and clerics, and perfumes, and clouds of incense. I, Duccio, son of Buoninsegna, with all my family and pupils, followed it among the multitude, weeping for the pride of having painted it in such a way." This precious short tale on Duccio di Buoninsegna's Majesty is a fantastic journey into the territories of Senese Art History and Spirituality and conceals a secret message. Text in Italian and English. Italian description: La grande tavola, finita, ora troneggia sull'altare maggiore della cattedrale, a Siena, patria mia, citta dagli scudi bianchi e neri, che sembrano eterni. Una grande processione e musiche celestiali l'hanno accompagnata per le vie della citta, e chierici, e profumi, e nuvole di incenso. Io, Duccio, figlio di Buoninsegna, con tutti i miei famigli, la seguivo nella moltitudine, piangendo per l'orgoglio di averla fatta cosi. La piccola storia preziosa sulla Maesta di Duccio di Buoninsegna e una incursione fantastica nei territori della storia dell'arte e della spiritualita medioevale senese e cela un messaggio segretoashow more
