🖼 #Berthier130
Nella piccola Adorazione dei Magi che fu di Giulia Arese, moglie di Renato II Borromeo, la cura che Giulio Cesare Procaccini mette nella regia e nella resa delle figure, concepite come microsculture preziose, ci ricorda che l’artista attorno al 1605, sebbene trentenne, è da poco approdato all’arte della pittura.
.
Nato a Bologna, figlio di Ercole Procaccini il Vecchio e fratello di Camillo e Carlo Antonio, tutti rinomati pittori, Giulio Cesare fu l’unico della famiglia a iniziare la carriera artistica come scultore.
.
Questa tavola della Galleria Berthier è uno dei migliori esempi delle sue sperimentazioni giovanili, dove la pittura veloce, impetuosa e improvvisa rilegge i maestri di area emiliana, primo fra tutti il Parmigianino.

In the little Adoration of the Magi by Giulia Arese, wife of Renato II Borromeo, the care that Giulio Cesare Procaccini puts into directing and rendering figures, conceived as precious microsculptures, reminds us that the artist, in around 1605, although thirty years old, had recently arrived in the art of painting.
.
Born in Bologna, son of Ercole Procaccini the Elder and brother of Camillo and Carlo Antonio, all renowned painters, Giulio Cesare was the only one in the family to begin his artistic career as a sculptor.
.
This panel from Galleria Berthier is one of the best examples of his early experiments, where fast, impetuous and sudden painting reinterprets the masters of the Emilian area, starting with Parmigianino.

Pronunciate il nome Viburnum. Quale sensazione vi lascia?
🌿
Se vi sembra risuonare fortemente tra le labbra, come qualcosa dal carattere molto forte, è perché avete intuito la caratteristica dei suoi rami: la tenacia.
🏹
Gli antichi arcieri avevano scelto proprio il legno di Viburnum lantana per realizzare frecce leggere e dalla dirittura molto precisa. I rami del Viburnum opulus, invece, venivano usati come scudisci per cavalli.
❄️
Noi abbiamo scelto il Viburno per dare un tocco di magia ai viali dell’Isola Bella in inverno. Quando sbocciano sembrano batuffoli di neve profumatissima.

Say the name Viburnum. What feeling does it evoke?
🌿
If it seems to resonate powerfully between your lips, like something with a very strong character, it is because you have embodied the essential characteristic of its branches: tenacity.
🏹
Ancient archers chose the wood of Viburnum lantana to make light arrows with a very precise straightness. The branches of the Viburnum opulus, on the other hand, were used as shields for horses.
❄️
We have chosen the Viburnum to give a touch of magic to the paths of Isola Bella during the winter. When they bloom, they are like balls of fragrant snow.
