Maddalena Penitente

“Voglio un letto di porpora, e trovare

in quell’ombra giacendo su quel seno,

come in fondo a un sepolcro, l’Infinito.”

 

“I want a bed of crimson and to find

when in that shade and on that breast I lie,

as if deep inside a tomb, the Infinite.”

 

Voglio un amore doloroso, Poema Paradisiaco, Gabriele D’Annunzio † 1892

Maddalena Penitente, Antonio Canova, Musei di Strada Nuova, Palazzo Bianco, Genova † 1796
