“Cristo Risorto” by Marco Basaiti
The DAW®(Digital ArtWork) of the “Resurrection of Christ” by Marco Basaiti (1470-1530), preserved in the halls of Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan, replaced the original work that was being restored during the autumn of 2018. The painting represents the resurrected Christ in the foreground, seated on a stone ledge with his sides covered by the shroud in which was wrapped while he is pointing with his right hand the wound in his side and his left hand and holds the banner of Easter victory (the white flag with a red cross). The rock he is seated on has an inscription in Latin on the left, with a phrase from Paul the Apostle’s letter to the Romans making the words those of the resurrected Lord as an interpretative caption for the painting: “Death shall have no dominion over me”. The aim of SAVE THE ARTISTIC HERITAGE & CINELLO is to safeguard the heritage of Italian museums through DAW® (Digital ArtWorks). These are limited series in 1:1 scale of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art, certified and impossible to reproduce. They are digital copies authenticated by the museums that hold the originals, and 50 % of the net revenues from their sale will go to support the owner museum. The high technological content (which is made possible by the company Cinello and its patent) makes the DAW® absolutely impossible to reproduce and guarantees its uniqueness. These digital reproductions offer Italian and international museums the extraordinary possibility of organizing impossible exhibitions with artworks that are immovable from their original position.
