Twentieth-century European avant-garde looked upon Byzantine art for inspiration, as they refused the neo-classic academic painting. Instead, Italian artists grew a deep aversion against Byzantium, as it appeared as the decadent civilization opposite to the classical Rome. All the same, the Fascist regime considered the Rome as its model. After Fascism had received a worldwide legitimation in the 1930s, such an attitude changed radically...

From Bergamo they moved to Milan to work on the construction of Santa Maria presso San Satiro and it is precisely here that, in a document that dates 1489, we see appearing for the first time the nickname of «Magistro Bertholameo Brabantino depinctore»...

Anno: 2016
In the last quarter of the fifteenth century, when Bramante arrived at Milan, the city was the major centre in Italy for the research of modern domed buildings. The challenge was to overcome the too strict Sagrestia Vecchia’s cubic type, incapable of clearly expressing the signum Crucis - the symbol of modern faith as opposed to the idolatrous pagan religion. The development of a modern Christian temple, cross-shaped and domed, had already began in the previous decades with Alberti (as an architect, not theorician) and Filarete’s Architettonico libro, for whom the cross was assumed as an iconic mark...
