Suono Italiano 2020 - Stockholm Early Music Festival: Punctum Contra Punctum. Symmetries and visions in the Italian Renaissance - Concert by Simone Vallerotonda

Punctum Contra Punctum

Symmetries and visions in the Italian Renaissance

V centenary of Raffaello Sanzio's death (1520 - 2020)

"The Prince of Painters"


"In Urbino on April 6, 1483, Raffaello Sanzio saw the light at three in the morning. Raffaello began his short adventure on Earth, so intense and burning that it has to be considered as a legend; and the game of coincidences seems to pre-order and favour faithful circumstances more loyal to the man than to the myth. On April 6th, 1520, at three in the morning, Raphael died".

Painting, architecture, music, poetry, theater, society, everything seems to look at the Greek model of perfection and beauty. Everything looks at Nature as harmony, proportion, symmetry. Man is at the center of the universe and in this new harmonious and synergistic dimension with nature and God, man is the architect of his own destiny.

The enhancement of all human potential is at the basis of the individuals dignity with the refusal of the separation between spirit and body: the research for pleasure and happiness is praised in all its forms as a research and knowledge of one's own "I" according to nature, or within the Nature system in which man is at the center. 

The concert is presented as part of the Stockholm Early Music Festival (SEMF), the largest event dedicated to Baroque, Renaissance and medieval music in the Nordic countries.


Stockholm Early Music Festival is blocking rows and seats in order to maintain social distancing according to the Public Health Authority in Sweden. If you want to make a reservation, please visit Stockholm Early Music Festival (SEMF)'s website
