truth and lies. Truth is as fragile as a
bud; it needs care and protection to
turn into a beautiful flower. Lies, on
the contrary, are exactly like hur-
ricanes. They grow relentlessly and
devastate everything in their paths.
Born Liars
pays tribute to the genius
of Eduardo De Filippo while largely
reinterpreting his original script. The
message, though, remains timeless.

Parma, Francesco (‘Parmigianino’)
Mazzola only lived to be thirty-seven
yearsold,yethiseloquent,innovative
art led contemporaries to dub him
“Raphael reborn.” During his short
life, Parmigianino was especially
esteemed for his portraits. Today his

a young woman, is an icon in the city
of Parma and admired as an expres-
sion of ideal female beauty in the tra-
dition of Leonardo’s
Mona Lisa

seen outside its home institution,
the Galleria Nazionale di Parma, this
masterpiece crosses the Atlantic for
the first time to be displayed at NYC’s

the exhibition offers a new interpre-
tation of the sitter’s identity and will
