A detail, one of the many that it’s possible to contemplate in this famous painting by Botticelli, a masterpiece of the Renaissance, an icon in the great sanctuary of painting which is the Uffizi Gallery, a destination for lay pilgrimages every day. The thousands of tourists who with pictures and selfies immortalize the picture, return home trying to grasp what is elusive, the elegance of its female figures, rendered in its highest expression; the enraptured looks of the characters, some smiling but silent, also for this reason even more mysterious. The interpretations of Botticelli’s painting are many and divergent, at least as many species of flowers have been identified in the meadow of the “hermetic wood”, a hortus conclusus where Beauty and Philosophy celebrate their wedding on the occasion of the new season, the rebirth one: Good Primavera everyone!
