L'Enigma futurista di Samarcanda (dittico)
[...] "Horse run, run please
I will lead you to Samarkand,
do not stop, please flies
Run like the wind that will save me [...] "(*)
Come to the Art has to feel the same feelings that the "Vecchioni's soldier" warned electrifying on the skin as soon as he set foot, unless, in Samarkand. Escape war and death, and he had found refuge in the ancient city, which rises like phoenix each time more and more prosperous and flourishing from the ashes of its rubble.
Crossroads of Cultures, Samarkand lends itself in a strategic manner to represent the emblem of Art. Art, in turn, a crossroads of cultures, currents, movements, which flow into one big sea. Artistic currents that saves man from the semantics obsolescence oblivion, and from the "black lady" - even in the Vecchioni's pen, "she" remains still lurking - inevitable, but not impossible to get around. Fooled. Postpone ... DELAY.
Delaying with creative flair. With the cool contemporary artistic concept of the classic, sometimes too close to the Grand Masters who have made the History of Art.
Dress masterfully on the role of Pygmalion who creates his ideal and perfect muse, and so build a millennial happiness. The man who creates the Art. THE RIGHT OBJECT OF SALVATION. The runaway Carrà's horse furious galloping at the speed of light, and it echoes the Vecchioni's horse "son of the time", in a futuristic move that segments the "4th cubist dimension" in a multiple facets, that as a video frame crystallized in the Time draw and let the entire movement from alpha to omega point. And then a repeat of all, in a race against time, until reach the safe destination, and lead there the soldier to safety.
"[...] It's not so distant Samarkand,
horse run, run beyond ...
I sang with you all night
Run like the wind that will come [...] "(*)
TO FILIPPO STANISCIA.
TO HIS ART, HIS CREATIVE ESTRO, WHICH IS THE CARRA'S HORSE IN CONTINUOUS FUTURIST/CREATIVE MOVEMENT, KEEPING ALIVE THE GUIDE LIGHT, THAT LEADS US HARMLESS TO THE MYSTERIOUS SAMARCANDA.
MY TRIBUTE TO HIM, TO THE EXTRAORDINARY CREATIVE PERSON THAT GIVES HIM WHO IS THE NEXT, TO THE BEAUTY OF HIS CREATIVE ESTRO, TO HIS INEVITABLE AND UNBEATABLE CONTRIBUTE TO THE MOTHER ART.
IF WE HAVE MORE, AND, TAKING IN LOAN THE DOSTOEVSKIJ'S THOUGHT, THEN SURE THE ART, THROUGH THE BEAUTY, WILL SAVE THE WORLD.
(*) Verses from the song "Samarkand" by Roberto Vecchioni.
