Thomas Companella…


A renaissance artist who achieved fame

and fortune by articulating the religious

doctrines of his mistress, a wealthy

Florentine dedicated to the church.


At the height of his fame a schism betwixt the

two developed with Companella proclaiming

the ascendency of nature’s rule while his mistress

held to the purer geometric forms of God.


In order that his most famous work, a depiction of

Christ on the cross, be seen the municipal art gallery

displaying it had, everyday, to reconstruct its production

from start to finish to the accompaniment of music.


This operatic endeavour became a wonder of

the artistic and ecclesiastical worlds though it did

little to reconcile the now bitterly feuding couple.


Toward the end of his career a reconciliation of

sorts was achieved when the couple sorted out their

differences by correspondence and agreed to meet.


Both were killed in freak accidents on the

way to their designated meeting place after

following the agreed instructions to the letter.
