Despite the pouring rain, last Friday a large number of people participated to the presentation of my new book: the 500th of the “Blue Series” by Velar-Elledici … The event was a sort of journey through the ancient history of a unique place, a treasure trove of art in the heart of the Ancient Bergamo. Thank you all for the warm participation and to Paolo Sandini (Velar) for the photo shoot.
Published by Editrice Velar, my new book tells about an act of mercy, performed by Grata for St. Alexander, the noble Theban knight, patron of the city of Bergamo (Italy). I found this fascinating story in a wonderful treasure of art: a script of the Thirteenth Century, composed by Pinamonte da Brembate. Art, history, literature and culture come together in an extraordinary document that lives on today thanks to this publication.
