About Us

An Ekphrasis is a literary figure of speech that consists of the description of an artistic object within a text, which is considered of great documentary value by the scholars, since it can lead to the reconstruction of its historical an cultural background. These literary examples date back to the ancient Greeks, starting from Homer, and they witness how human beings always showed the tendency to consider the arts as a means of elaboration of thoughts and considerations on the world: hence the choice of this name for our blog, in which, starting from the observation of artistic pieces and projects, we aim at stressing the essential role of arts as a field sensitive to the themes and debates of our contemporaneity.
