Michelangelo Caravaggio - Madonna di Loreto

Caravaggio’s “Madonna di Loreto,” the Madonna of the Pilgrims. Caravaggio’s hyper-realism is a magician’s conjuring trick, and a perfect metaphor for great art, which declines to make obvious its deepest truths, leaving us to decipher them if we can. (Basilica di Sant' Agostino, Rome).

There ain't no sin and there ain't no virtue. There's just stuff people do. - John Steinbeck, Grapes of Wrath

Da 409 anni se ne sta nella penombra, sulla soglia di casa, col figlio in braccio. Paziente, indisturbata perfino quando la città che la circonda diventa una spiaggia per turisti assetati. Le chiese di Roma ospitano quadri che nei musei attirerebbero le folle. Forse li proteggono da una curiosità effimera e sciatta: per vedere un quadro in chiesa, devi cercarlo.
