A team of researchers of the Sapienza University of Rome has analyzed the brain activity of visitors while observing a work of art live instead of looking at it on a computer screen. The experiment was carried out in front of the sculpture of Moses by Michelangelo in the Basilica of San Pietro in Vincoli (Saint Peter in Chains) in Rome. The study showed that visitors’ suggestion in front of the masterpiece by Michelangelo differs according to the place from which the observer looks at the statue. In particular, researchers demonstrated that the highest level of emotion is reached when people directly observe the face and eyes of Moses, that is from a lateral position in relation to the statue. Conversely, the level of emotion is significantly lower when the statue is frontally observed and Moses does not meet the visitors’ gaze. (ResearchItaly)
