Get On the Fiery March: Mussolini Prepares for War PDF

Via the Nineteen Thirties fascist dictator Benito Mussolini reached the realization that Italy confronted a transparent selection: extend its energy on the rate of the British and French Empires or face stagnation and decline. He believed that the regimes within the democratic West wouldn't have the capacity to comprise their inherent hostility towards fascist dynamism, whereas their demographic and political weaknesses supplied the chance for the more youthful, demographically virile fascist Italy to carve a brand new empire within the Mediterranean established order.

Example text

In the final scene the relic arrives safely in Venice, where it is received by the Doge and the clergy. The mosaic decoration of the apse tells its story in two different ways. In most cases the wall becomes a storyboard where scenes are placed side by side in chronological sequence. More subtle juxtapositions support an associative rather than sequential reading. The Pantocrator image is not linked to the four saints below by narrative sequence or chronology. Peter, Hermagoras, and Mark can be understood in isolation as unrelated images, but if we accept their position as a clue—they are close together because they are linked symbolically—and tie them to the Pantocrator, a reading based on association and rooted in the architectural space of San Marco comes into focus.

While recognizing a Tintoretto or a Titian by traits of style may be difficult and praiseworthy, and while churches and patrons often competed to hire the best-known artists, the interpretation of a biblical subject was the single most important criterion for commissioning and judging a work of art before about 1750. Most Western painting prior to that time was biblical or hagiographic, and viewing it today without a sense of the text it is representing and commenting on is a little like reading the stage directions to Merchant of Venice and ignoring the play.

Mark was not one of the eleven who received Christ’s commission directly, he played an apostolic role through his own missions and especially through his Gospel. It is entirely appropriate that a church in the shape of the Byzantine Apostoleion should be created in his honor. It is also appropriate that the decorative program of that church should explore the broadest meaning of the apostolic movement. Like Christ, who is the source of apostolic authority, the Pantocrator image is a visual point of origin.
