Genoa – A bubbly, as always, Vittorio Sgarbi, in his capacity as artistic director of the Pallavicino Foundation in Genoa who donated the work, discovered in the early afternoon the statue that pays homage to the Genoese composer Niccolò Paganini, the work of the sculptor Livio Scarpella, chosen by the Foundation. The statue was placed in the porch in front of the Carlo Felice theater.
“There was a first sketch, static, inspired by a sketch by Ingres, but it was very Apollonian – says Sgarbi – Instead, Scarpella transfigured it into Dionysian dimension attributing to the sculpture a thrill, a dynamism that alludes to the physical conformation of the violinist who, it is said, had made a pact with the devil to play with such skill “.
“Bucci he will be 100% re-elected “, added the critic, speaking of how the city of Genoa is doing.
