VI RACCONTO TORINO

Mascheroni di Torino

Li troviamo sulle facciate di antichi palazzi, musei e portoni, con le loro espressioni truci: sono i Mascheroni Barocchi di Torino.

Rappresentano figure zoomorfe o antropomorfe.

Ibridi di fantasia riproducenti il volto umano o fitomorfi con forme ripescate dal mondo vegetale e sono uno diverso dall’altro.

Generalmente i mascheroni sono realizzati in gesso, marmo, pietra e cemento e rappresentano caricature di stati d’animo: l’ira, la paura, l’ingenuità, lo scherno, l’allegria.

Il perché di tali decorazioni si deve ricercare nelle famiglie nobiliari del tempo, che utilizzavano i mascheroni negli stemmi araldici come simbolo di forza, eleganza e sfrontatezza.

Mascherone della Cittadella
Mastio della Cittadella
Posto a chiave di volta del portone d’ingresso, sbeffeggiava gli invasori che tentavano di entrare per quell’ ingresso. Si trattava infatti di una falsa porta
Mascheroni Palazzo Carignano
Voluti dal Guarini contornano le finestre di Palazzo Carignano e rappresentano i capi tribù degli Irochesi

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

  9. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  10. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work
    due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

  11. What you published was very logical. However, what about
    this? what if you wrote a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t good, but suppose you added something
    that makes people want more? I mean Mascheroni di Torino – – Vi
    presento Torino – – Tra Storia e Mito is kinda plain. You
    should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create news titles to get people
    interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about
    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make
    your blog a little bit more interesting.

  12. Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?

    I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and
    views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  13. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means
    discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will probably be a lot
    more useful than ever before.

  14. Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a
    lot of work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary on a
    daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring
    bloggers. Appreciate it!

  15. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and
    tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she

    really something which I think I would never

    the hang of it!
