I also experimented with various painting techniques using scientific methods “.

The Poetics of the Cosmos in the Art of Giuseppe Muscio. If there is a concept, contained in a term that more than any other sets agree the scientific thought, the theological and the philosophical one, this is the Cosmos. The ancient understood the term Cosmos as the harmonic order created after the original chaos.

All this for every created thing not only for humans. For the Greek philosophers Cosmos was the idea of maximum beauty united between souls, psyche and outer man, rational life.
