Page 2 POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 5, 2015 S ti rp_e_ i Nostra by Prof. Edmund Turiello A weekly column highlighting some of the more interesting aspects of our ancestry.., our lineage.., our roots. ROMANO VS. RAPHAEL While we are on the theme of Cupid, Psyche, and art, a very interesting story tells us about the community of Mantua in northern Italy, the birthplace of Vergil. He glorified the city's palace in his four books entitled "Georgica" This is the work which exhibited such a high artistic perfection in Latin poetry that it confirmed his position as the foremost poet of the "Golden Age of Latin Literati." Mantua played an impor- tant part in the turmoil of the Middle Ages when the Gonzagas obtained its mas- tery. This is also when the city attained importance and prOsperity. The Gonzagas _were genuine lovers of art and literature, and they made their court a brilliant center of culture, deeds, arts, and letters. One wife of a succeeding Gonzaga was the gentle Isabella d'Este, so wise and accomplished that she was called the first lady in the world. She corre- sponded with the most emi- nent men of her time, charmed all hearts and her requests were never refused. Whatever activity she un- dertook was well done and her high spirits never failed her. As a great connoisseur of art se LL.ed b(mks, gems, rare brocades, musi- cal instruments, paintings and other works with which she decorated her apart- ment. It was appropriately called "II Paradiso". The Gonzagas also built a summer residence which they called "Palazzo Del Te." Here, they decorated the walls with sensational and occasionally indelicate mythological and allegorical frescoes that were designed by Giulio Romano and ex- ecuted by his pupils. One room, for example, shows the notorious "Overthrow of the Giants." Colossal figures are Mannerism's most famous fresco: Giulio Romano's illusionism invents a dome overhead and dissolves the room's architecture in the Fall of the Giants. shown crushed between enormous masses of rock. Another chamber's frescoes relate the story of Psyche as told by Apuleius in "The Golden Ass". Here, however, the incidents in that fable are illustrated with every variety of fantasy and inso- lence that freedom permit- ted. In spite of their erotic nature, the compositions are important, not only for a study of the life and man- ners of the people .who fre- quented the residence, but for the influence that those pictures exercised on future art. Another very interesting series on this same subject is located in Rome's Farnese Palace. The structure was started in 1500 A.D., giving Michelangelo, Giacomo della Porta, and Antonio da Sangallo an opportunity to contribute to its design. The owner of the palace was a banker, an enthusiastic ad- mirer of the arts, and patron of Raphael. The ceiling of one large vestibule contains twelve fascinating frescoes displaying the same famous fable of Cupid and Psyche, but here it is told in a man- ner which is most graceful :x : ::::i " ::,:::::::::'*|v .... ;: ..... i::::',:;:::::> " :::=-:: 4 :: i 500 Canterbury Street Boston, MA 02131 617.524.1036 ST, MICHAEL CEMETERY CREMATORY The Respectful v,ay, Serving the Italian Community for Over 100 Years!

The entire compo- sition was designed and started by Raphael but completed by his pupils. This work" is rated on a par with the most charming cre- ations of the master. The scenes are neither coarse nor sensual; a nobility of proportion which never over- steps the bounds of refine- ment. This, of course, ex- plains why most people know Raphael for the great master that he was, while at the same time think of Romano, as a distributor of grated cheese. The next time you get to Rome you must visit the Farnese Palace --that's an order. NEXT WEEK: Aenaes, Founder of the Roman Race. I DIAMONDS 1 ROLEX ESTATE JEWELRY Bought & Sold Jewelers Exch. Bldg.

DONNELLY, JR., First Jus'dce of this Court. Date: May 18, 2015 Tara E. DeCdstofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 6/5/15 Res Publica by David Trumbull "The Emblem of Sunday, June 14% is Flag Day. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress in 1777. It's a good time to re- fleet on the meaning of the flag and of the P/edfe of AUe- glance that many of us re- cited daily in school. I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America should be ren- dered by standing at atten- tion facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men should remove their head- dress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoul- der, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, arid render the mili- tary salute (U.S. Code Title 4 Sec. 4.) The original Pledge of Alle- giance, "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the Republic for which it stands -- One nation indivisible -- with lib- erty and justice for all," was written in September of 1892 by Francis Bellamy for The Youth's Companion magazine in Boston. The phrase was printed on leaf- lets and sent to schools throughout the United States. The first organized use of the Pledge of Alle- giance came on October 12, 1892, whefi some 12 million American school children recited it to commemorate the 400-year anniversary of Columbus' voyage. In 1923, the first National Flag Conference in Wash- ington D.C. voted to change the words *my flag" to *the Flag of the United States of America." Congress officially recognized the Pledge of Al- legiance in 1942, but in 1943, the Supreme Court ruled that public school students could not be forced to recite it. The words "under God" were added in 1954 by then President Eisenhower, who stated at the time, "In this f it; the Land I Love" way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America's heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country's most powerful resource in peace and war."
