Goethe once said, “A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which has been implanted in the human soul.” Perhaps that is exactly why I get so much out of the work of Luca Longobardi. It not only dissipates the negativity that can occasionally filter into my daily life through unpleasant news reports, unbearably hot weather, or even Roman traffic jams, but it brings the Beautiful of this world front and center, wrapped in sound, like a gift for which I am very grateful.% | % | % | % | % | % | % | % | % | %
