Caterina Napoleone - I Giochi Delle Muse

Publisher Corraini Edizioni

Idea Code 21349

This book by Roman art historian Caterina Napoleone testifies to an artistic inventiveness that captures the “eternal and ineffable meaning of beings and things”. Packed with over ninety images of ancient and modern mosaics that have been rendered abstract by time and set among remnants of textiles, we are reminded that the ever-playful Muses are the namesake of mosaics. Musivo, furthermore, is an alternative word for mosaic in Italian. Each mosaic bears a harmony of colour and composition, an evocative power of the sequence of transient visions, enhanced by the arbitrary combinations of these meandering "stone carpets".
