A major exhibition dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the publication of the Orlando Furioso by the poet, who was the world-famous founder of the Renaissance and modern poetry has been ongoing since last autumn. It is in progress in Italy, and until January 29, in Ferrara, the city of Ludovico Ariosto. The Ferrara's exhibition concludes Ariosto's celebrations in Italy. Also in Italy, a new edge vanguard is blooming, which was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, Ludovico Ariosto himself and Early Renaissance: really a new Information Age Renaissance.

In remembrance, I conducted an exclusive interview with the founder of this new vanguard - Davide Foschi, a very famous Italian contemporary artist.

From Ariosto to the future

BN- Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso, masterpieces of the Italian and International Renaissance: after 500 years the Renaissance starts today from Milan?

Davide Foschi: "From Italy, land of Dante, Ariosto and Petrarca, Leonardo, Raffaello and Michelangelo, a breath of new air is coming. It all started several years ago: firstly with my personal artistic activities geared to the recovery of the true sense of Art Origins.

At the beginning of 2013, I wrote and published a document of intent, the "Manifesto of Metateismo for a New Renaissance." It was translated over a short period into many languages and distributed worldwide (in Italy published by Giorgio Mondadori editor in Monograph Davide Foschi - Metateismo).

In ten key points, I summarized the principles of a great movement capable of regaining the roots of the great sixteenth-century Renaissance and be able to look to the future, rebuilding our society starting from the human being and involving art, economics, culture, and science.

The New Renaissance has now spread not only in Italy, which has officially started in Milano in 2016 on the occasion of the Festival of New Renaissance but in many states in the world where you recognize these neohumanistic principles. From Ariosto celebrations to the five hundredth anniversary of the death of Leonardo - a new man is possible".
