The Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Prime Minister, Bruno Tabacci, will inaugurate, on Monday, June 13, at the headquarters of the Aryan Scientific Research Center, the exhibition “The Golden Number of Fibonacci from Ancient Art to Ettore de Concilis”. The event, presented by Biogem President, Ortensio Zecchino, marks another stage of the 14th edition of the “Cultures 2” meeting, this year focused on the main theme of “Art and Science”, and spread throughout the year.
In particular, it is an exhibition designed by the world-famous physicist Antonino Zicici, with the aim of highlighting the link that unites art and science in the golden number (1.618), revealed by the mathematical genius of Leonardo Fibonacci (1170ca-1242ca). The track, curated by the director of the publishing house “Il Cigno”, Lorenzo Zichichi, and created with the help of leading technologies, will lead the viewer to admire the reproductions of masterpieces of art of all times, interacting with the works of Maestro de Concelles and other contemporary authors.
The exhibition, already held in Rome, Castel del Monte and Erice, aims to reveal the secrets of the golden number, defined by the mathematician Luca Pacioli (1445-1517) as a ‘divine proportion’, and considered an authentic expression of harmony present in creation and thus a symbol of perfection. aesthetic;
From the human body, to musical harmonies, from masterpieces of every age, to the geometric shapes of plants and fruits, this ratio, ubiquitous in nature, has been understood, studied, or ‘used’ unintentionally, since the beginning of human history. . The spectator of the exhibition will be presented with famous examples of golden proportions, from the Greek classicism of Phidias, to the medieval court of Frederick II, through to the Renaissance of Leonardo, Michelangelo and Botticelli, to the contemporary installations of Master Ettore De Conciliis and other authors, such as Bruno Ceccobelli and Paola Lo Sciuto.
The exhibition also departs in parallel from the more rigorous scientific and philosophical aspect, with in-depth studies, among others, of Plato and Euclid, right up to Leonardo Fibonacci, the medieval genius of Pisan, rediscovered and definitively rediscovered by Leonardo three centuries later. To end this tour perfectly through the centuries and to agree to the interaction of the exhibition, finally, was the video interview with Professor Zichichi, which aims to clarify the deep meaning of the golden number and the relationship between mathematics and art.
