Il punto di vista del cavallo: Caravaggio

By Vittorio Sgarbi

Caravaggio è doppiamente contemporaneo.

È contemporaneo perché c’è, perché viviamo contemporaneamente alle sue opere che continuano a vivere; ed è contemporaneo perché l. a. sensibilità del nostro pace gli ha restituito tutti i significati e l’importanza della sua opera. Non sono stati il Settecento o l’Ottocento a capire Caravaggio, ma il nostro Novecento. Caravaggio viene riscoperto in un’epoca fortemente improntata ai valori della realtà, del popolo, della lotta di classe.

Ogni secolo sceglie i propri artisti. E questo garantisce un’attualizzazione, un’interpretazione di artisti che non sono più del Quattrocento, del Cinquecento e del Seicento ma appartengono al pace che li capisce, che li interpreta, che li sente contemporanei. Tra questi, nessuno è più vicino a noi, alle nostre paure, ai nostri stupori, alle nostre emozioni, di quanto non sia Caravaggio.
