A young German man descended to Italy from Lake Garda - the same tour that Goethe would later take - in 1494, and his travel opened a fundamental communication channel between the German and Italian Renaissance. He stayed and worked mostly in Venice, coming to terms with master painters like Giovanni Bellini, although unfortunately his works on the Lagoon were later destroyed by a fire.
.:. Many more paintings and engravings by the young man, whose name was Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), have survived, however. A hundred of works by him and other great German contemporaries like Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Altdorfer and Hans Baldung Grien (but also great Italians) are now exhibited in Milan.
.:. It's the story of the first massive cultural contact across Europe after the empire of Charlemagne six centuries before, but also the epic of the first systematic production of art prints ever undertaken on planet Earth. AD, an acronym which of course stands for Albrecht Dürer, did for the dissemination of visual culture what Gütenberg's method of movable type has done - forever - in reading.
