Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Artistic Easter eggs on display in Rome

2015-04-05

It takes at least four hours to make a chocolate Easter egg like this one. Some of them could take  days to finish. But what about artistic pieces like this one? Walter Musco is responsible for this tasty exhibit in Rome and Milan's Bompiani pastry shop

"It all started off with a basic concept, which was to reflect the work of artist Duchamp. We were trying to give an artistic angle to everyday things. So, for instance, with chocolate Easter eggs, we were looking at keeping their ordinary presence, but adding an artistic edge to the design.” 

The eggs embody works from artists like Pollock or writers like Murakami. There are 230 in total. The exhibition is celebrating its fourth anniversary this year.

"It started four years ago with small samples to honor artists like Lucio Fontana. However, I have been widening the concept to include new artists and expand the range. This year, we honored more than 20 or 25 truly great artists.”

Walter Musco says that he is successful because of the impression his exhibit leaves on the audience. This is how customers reacted when they entered his pastry shop.

"I came here by chance, and I have to say that I'm surprised and amazed. I congratulate whoever has made this. It is an absolute novelty and now I will ask if I can buy one. I hope the price matches the quality.”

"I believe it is edible modern art. I would love to have an egg designed by Banksy, the graffiti artist.”

The Easter egg tradition started among Christians because they abstained from certain foods during Lent. They kept their eggs during the season, and once it ended, they gathered them in front of the church to give away.

If you want to see the exhibition, hurry. Someone might just eat the artwork before you arrive.
