Roberto Bolle, his words on the importance of art are to be framed. Here is what he said


Roberto Bolle closed his 'Dance with Me' last night with a speech about the importance of art. Here's what he said.

A speech on the importance of art in the closing of Danza con me: last night, on Rai Uno, Roberto Bolle not only enchanted the television audience with his dancing but also emphasized what the true importance of art is. And so, in one minute, Bolle managed to condense most of the reasons why art plays a fundamental role in our lives: art as a way to grow and develop critical thinking, art as inclusion, art as consolation, art as a chance to build a better future.

Words that, unfortunately, we don’t often hear on public television, and all without even the usual rhetoric about “beauty” being lapped up. On the contrary, Bolle’s words open the year with an air of freshness: the hope is that they will be embraced by those who have to deal with the gesionte of art. Here is what Roberto Bolle said:

“We left behind a terrible year, dominated by fear. Fear of getting sick, of not making it. Fear of dying, of not working anymore, of being alone. Fear of not smiling, fear of no longer being able to touch, embrace. In a frozen, stuck world, what can art do? Some wondered, some even claimed it was useless to wonder. But what is useless, art has nothing at all. Art has the power to elevate our spirit, to make us better people, and to unite us on a deeper level that knows no barriers, walls or differences. Art is passion, joy, creativity, sharing, but also civic sense. Art soothes pain and comforts us even in such an absurd time. At the same time, art shows us truths, possible words, shows us what we will become again, what we must become again. This is what art does and this is what we have tried to do tonight, for you and for us. That is why we cannot stop and we will not stop: despite all the necessary braking, dance and art will never stop.”
