In 2009, on the occasion of the 84th anniversary of the birth of Don Oreste Benzi, Antonietta Corsini created a painting for the altar of the Church of the Resurrection in Rimini, which he founded in 1968 with Don Elio Piccari and Don Silvio Ceccarini. The work, consisting of a painting on canvas transferred with avant-garde techniques behind the main altar on a surface of mt. 4 x 5, is part of the more general artistic restyling of the ecclesial complex renovated for the occasion on the indications of the designer of the same church, the Rimini engineer Giuseppe Ferri. The painter was inspired by two classic masterpieces: the Deposition by Caravaggio and the Resurrection by Van Dyck, interpreting some shapes and colors. A large luminous silver wing, symbol of God present, acts as a trait-d’union between the two scenes.
