  • I went with a very close friend of mine to see Moses by Michelangelo in the San Pietro in Vincoli’s church in Rome. It was a sacred music coming out from two speakers.
    We went close to Moses, then i stopped and I didn’t move a single muscle for a very long time.
    I was looking at his face, his beard, the way he was sitting, the structure of the entire sculpture and then I was wandering why he is looking on his left side and not straight ? Then it came to my mind that he is a particular man, this man met God face to face.
    Suddenly all the questions and thoughts crashed down and i started to see things without any interference, just seeing things … his left hand on his belly …. the fingers of his right hand taking the long beard.
    Then i moved on my left side to see him from a different point of view and right there it was a guide telling a story to his group about Moses and Michelangelo and it was a very interesting story.
    Then i moved to the right side just to get right in front of his sight and look in his eyes.
    After a while a different guide very discretely started to tell a different story about Moses to his group of people.
    Both stories was very very interesting to me and i was wandering …. did he really lived ? did he really met God ? How many stories we know about him and how many things we still don’t know about what really happened to him ?
    I was about to leave with my friend, my body started to lose that grounding and stillness …. and I was asking to myself : what is behind each point of view and each story ? and what happen to Moses when nobody is here ?
