«SOTTO IL SEMBIANTE D’UNA PACATA MESTIZIA…» LA CACCIATA DEL DUCA D’ATENE DAL MEDIOEVO ALL’OTTOCENTO FRA CRONACA, AFFRESCO, NARRAZIONE E PITTURA 

 

Roberto Risso

 

 

This article reconstructs the relationship between a medieval fresco, a nineteenth-century picture and Niccolò Tommaseo’s historical narration entitled La cacciata del duca d’Atene. The analysis focuses on the historical, political and artistic relevance of the three different pieces of art delineating the common effort to communicate and represent a strong message of unity, fierceness and responsibility.
