“The passage to the light effected by Tintoretto indicates the voyage of the spirit that returns to itself, that abandons the healthful objectivity of things and the physical nature of the world itself to plunge into the dizzying abysses of inner psychological subjectivity” (D. Formaggio).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Tintoretto.
