dc.description Considering art as a universal, thus necessary, form of expression for men, it is interesting to notice how rare it is to find a society with a homogeneous development in all of its branches. Indeed, Italy, located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and principal heir of the great civilizations of Antiquity, represents an almost unique phenomenon-since art requires not only specialized skills and proper material, but also, in most cases, cultural interchange. Comparing this privileged situation bestowed by geography and history to the birthplace of Dante, Leonardo and Vivaldi, we find an opposite example in the little portion of land of Rapa Nui: the most remote human haven on Earth, ignored by the western world until its discovering by the Dutch Admiral Jacob Roggeeven.
