«Noi sediamo sulle rive del Po, lamentando la cattività del nostro paese»: gli ebrei nell’esilio babilonese come iconografia politica del Risorgimento

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

«On the banks of the river Po, there we sit down and weep the captivity of our land». Jewish exile in Babylon as a political iconography of Risorgimento. The Babylonian exile of the Jews is a Romantic iconography frequently depicted by German and French artists, that assumes in the context of Italian Risorgimento the value of a metaphor of the national movement’s conditions after the unsuccessful uprisings in 1848. To pave the way for this political interpretation of biblical imagery were massive use of biblical metaphors by Italian patriots and wide-spread circulation of poetic versions that propose of the psalms a secular, completely unorthodox interpretation. The article focuses on the literary and cultural groundings of the Art spectator’s ambivalent expectations during the Italian Risorgimento and it questions the artist’s use of this unvisible thread before and after the national unification.
