Poisson, it's a NECESSARY way to express oneself because our culture is so uptight about nudity. it's a desperate attempt to fly sh** in the face of the naysayers. Justified but, nevertheless, still immature. Go beyond that mentality. (I hope you don't hate me for saying this!)
The proper accent for Pieta: Thank you for the Bill Gates workaround, around the (former) Steve Jobs workaholic. I EAT apples. - David Lyga
NUDES: aesthetic?, erotic?, literal? ... or singularly apathetic?
Like reminding racist Sicilians that they are part black? (I say black instead African as I'm not sure where the slaves that took over were originally from, forgive my ignorance)

That's very good for Spanish but not for Italian or as they say "close, but no cigar" .

All other vowels can only have the accento grave. ò à ù ì.
Therefore: la "pietà" di Michelangelo (Alt + 0224)
Middle age sculpture does not indulge into nudity as subsequent sculpture.
Michelangelo is just one of a long string of artists who celebrated Man as a divine creature as it is, its form being his beauty and his glory, be it in the bloom of youth or in the decay of old age. That's all Umanesimo, putting God-created Man at the centre of creation and at the centre of attention and interest, Man as the highest creation of God, and for that reason sacred in itself.
Omnia munda mundis, all is pure for the pure of mind (and consequently all is dirty for the dirty of mind).
Those who only think about sex end up being "puritans".
In "Sacred and Profane Love" by Titian who impersonates the "sacred" love and who impersonates "profane"?
The answer is inside yourself.
I've been to Florence. Oooo, David got back too.

I've been to Las Vegas and the David replica in Caeser's "got hat", too, if you go during the Black Hat Conference!
Grazie, Diapositivo, per zero, due, due, quattro. Solo quando si comprende tuttle le lingue si può fare questo accento correttamente. Ma, ho provato questo e non succede nulla diversa da quella pagina si sposta! - Davide Lyga
Thank you, Diapositivo, for the zero, two, two, four. Only when one understands all the languages can one make this accent correctly. But, I have tried this and nothing happens other than the page shifts! - David Lyga
Yes, Stone, there is a DECIDED difference between the mindsets of Sicilians and Sardinians. A truly decided difference!!!
The Sardinian language is VERY different from Italian, so different that Sardinians are taught the Tuscany (purest) dialect of Italian in school and, thus, speak perfect Italian, without regional accent. My grandmother who came through Ellis Island at age nine, in 1919, spoke English without any accent, spoke (Tuscany) Italian perfectly, and, of course, spoke Sardinian (to my grandfather, born 1894!, who did not bother to learn English very well).
I saw all this go into motion perfectly, and in sync, when she took me (and my grandfather) to Italy for my high school graduation in 1968 in order to visit relatives in both Sardinia and Rome. Getting through Rome's Fiumicino Airport customs with about SIX CARTONS of Marlboros was achieved through vociferous arguing with the customs guard and ending up with him getting a few quick pack of cigarettes and letting us though, unimpeded, and without due remorse. - David Lyga
