"DO NOT BE AFRAID OF BEING CRAZY"
"DO NOT BE AFRAID OF BEING CRAZY"
These words were expressed by Francesco Gallo, one of the leading art critics of Italy, during the meting with YSU students.

All talents used to bear the mark of being crazy in all times. They are not crazy, they simply had different type of thinking, that is why one could hardly understand them, - said Mr. Gallo during the meeting, initiated YUS Faculty of History Chair of Armenian Art History and Theory and RA Ministry of Culture. 

Professor Francesco Gallo develops his activities in Rome, Neapol and Palermo. He delivers lectures on the history of art in Neapol. He is the author of numerous works, as well as organizes exhibitions.

The topic, chosen by him for the lecture, was about the perception of the nice. Only free man can feel the beauty. If You are not free, the beauty can seem a pornography for You, - said the Professor.

Starting the lecture with the berth of beauty, which according to him, was born in Greece, he focused on the modern perception of the beauty. Today all of us can become nice, as we can change our bodies. An eighty years olds woman lives in America, who has the body of 20 years old girl. We all want to be nice, me too, but one can find the beauty in mans eyes, as they are the mirror of the soul and not the body.

Future specialist of art Ani Nalbandyan was very impressed by the lecture. It is pity that beauty in our days has not got the emotional perception it used to. I saw that the beauty has become more material, the concept of beauty in the individual has disappeared, - said a third year student.

Anyway, our guest is an optimist. If people speak of the crisis of culture today, then I speak of culture of crisis, - he said and summarized the modern ideology of the culture with following words: I know that I know nothing.
