|“There is none good but one” (Matthew 19:17)|
by Pierangelo Sequeri
The thrill of the passionate look of God, entrusted with the earthly love of the Son, is written in the secret diary of the world. Rooted in that secret creative Thought of things, which hovers over the impenetrable Abyss of all possibilities. Those who have come, those who have yet to come. With this Thought, the artist spies on the reflections and steals the signs of every day life.
Pierced by those signs, the obviousness of our thoughtful (and presumptuous) reflectiveness appears, for a moment, as ash. One look, helpless and intense at the same time, lights diamonds in the hollow of the soul. To be kept free. Always. At any cost.
Ever since God dared to have a man's face it is in the eyes of man which turns on or off the invisible source of all energy of affection, which keeps the world alive. Given that, it appears, we know how to do everything, the battle now is for what we don't know how to do: letting appear hopelessly inadequate in the features of our human faces, the impossible bond of all possible bonds of love.
None of us is the true subject of this magnitude; repeated daily, "I love you." Each of us is destined to sink into his divine proportion. So as to save himself from the insurmountable disparity in which we live. If you're around, make a sign. Someone, a face, will answer you. And just maybe we'll make it through.
“Io ti amo” (I love you), when art marries knowledge
by Stefano Francoli
I think we are at the dawn of a new era. The crisis is clearly structural; socialism was the first to come down and now it's time for capitalism, in agony, all of its weaknesses and worst aspects are showing. When I think of the future I see a new humanism, a Renaissance in which the person will again be put at center stage, not as a client, but rather as a person. "Io ti amo” (I love you) means, in my opinion, let's work together on a project because we really have something to say and to be exchanged.
If I say "I believe," it reminds me of a reflection, useful but at the risk of being sterile. If I say "Io ti amo” (I love you), it reminds me of an action, being enlivened by good intentions which must only bring about something positive.
IO TI AMO represents the love of knowledge, but is also the vision of a business which requires a daily effort and two key elements;
The first: the idea that this age of commercialization of all good (including people) contains within it, the seed of a new Renaissance.
The second: the idea that the projects can truly contain the co-creation of meanings and values, however symbolic they may be.
