la raccolta e tremula dedizione d’un cuore.

Jacopo Zucchi | L'allegoria della Notte, 1588

"L'allegoria della Notte" di Jacopo Zucchi (1542-1596), è una delle nove tele dello splendido soffitto del Terrazzo delle Carte Geografiche, nel primo corridoio degli Uffizi a Firenze.
Fra le ombre della notte, al chiarore della luna, tutto può accadere.
Una dama alata, dalla carnagione eburnea, culla i suoi figli sopra una nube in un cielo stellato.
Uno di loro gioca con la falce del tempo.
