Tignano Festival 2015, meeting with Franco Cardini – The artist Patrizio Landolfi presents “The Humility”
Barberino Val d’Elsa (Florence) – What is the common thread that links an
artistic work, oriental dances and the meeting with Islam by Franco
Cardini? There are more and more -esoteric- disciplines and sciences, or
holistic ones, which find in the unity of knowledge the key to interpreting
the profound reasons for our existence. All -things- appear fragmented in
appearance but seem to be linked by the leitmotif of wisdom. It would be
enough to start searching to discover its secrets.
The inauguration of the 28th Tignano Festival for the Environment and
the Meeting between the Peoples has seen on stage, Wednesday, July 8th
at 9.15 pm, the protagonists of the free entry-debate, organized in
collaboration with the cultural association Active Citizenship and
Participation, entitled “Islam, clash of civilizations?”. Speaker Franco
Cardini, historian and essayist of international fame.
It was the artist Patrizio Landolfi who introduced the evening and
presented his work rather eloquently entitled -The Humility-. The
presumption and arrogance, according to the author, are the causes of all
violence and atrocities that the adult world is able to produce. The work
sees the four most widespread religions represented in the world, at the
center the man who through humility can find the path of dialogue and
encounter with the other.
