L’opera poetica e la spiritualità

Vittoria Colonna (1490-1547), belonging to the well-known and powerful Roman family, was one of the most fascinating figures of his time, animated by an authentic religiosity and a remarkable artistic sensitivity. Friend of Michelangelo, was herself a poet delicate and refined, as evidenced by his Rime.
The present study, dense and well-informed, examines the opera production of Vittoria Colonna, highlighting the link between popular poetry and the profound religious experience.
With this book opens the new series of "Collana di Studi Cappuccini Lombardi", curated by his father Constanzo Cargnoni.
