《丝绸之路艺术 —— 一带一路和文化自信》
l’Arte sulla Via di Seta - una Via e un Percorso di promozione culturale
con proiezioni video e immagini
Attraverso la storia del patrimonio artistico dell’Umanità delle Grotte di Mogao a Dunhuang, si racconta il passato, il presente e il futuro della Via della Seta, per giungere alle Nuove Vie della Seta nei tempi moderni, e alla previsione della futura Yi dai-Yi lu (“Una Via e un Percorso”).
Partendo dalle origini storiche dell’oasi e delle Grotte buddhiste (secoli IV-XIV) di Dunhuang, al centro della via settentrionale della Seta nella regione del Gansu, riscoperte un secolo fa e accuratamente studiate a Parigi, si traccia un “arcobaleno splendente” (敦煌) che idealmente collega Dunhuang con l’arte, la danza e la musica contemporanea di Hangzhou e la marea del fiume Qiantang.
