Allegory, Renaissance and snail
I invite you to share this gentle and peaceful walk inspired by scenes from “Wondrous Boccaccio” ¹ with remarkable Tuscan landscapes. I particularly enjoyed some sequences, played with a smooth rhythm. Also, in the first part of my “ALLEGORIE”, I voluntarily took the time to put my music slow with the desire to provoke meditation.
The second part, “after meditation”, and without any premeditation, is the warm and “bolerorized” ² complement of the first. Finally, to illustrate the whole, without excess speed, with a nod to my lunar creations, I join you, my ALLEGORIE …of the snail.
