Description

Francis of Assisi wrote his celebrated Canticle of the Creatures, sometimes known as the Canticle of Brother Sun and now become part of our spiritual heritage, during the final months of his life. No one has better expressed such infinite tenderness for the sun, the moon, the earth and the wind, considered brothers and sisters by the Poverello. This universal love towards the world and its creatures is also manifest in the legendary passages of the Fioretti, in which Francis is seen talking as a friend with the birds and the wolf. In order to recapture the original flavour of these texts, the calligrapher and stone-cutter Missant immersed himself in the culture of the Italy of the end of the Middle Ages, whose aesthetic he has recreated with his pen. "Blessed are you, o Lord, for brother wind, for the air and the clouds, and for the calm sky and all the weathers which allow you to assure the survival of all your creatures." (Francis of Assisi)
