Picture – view along the Rio de la Pieta at Furlani in Venice nearby the bakery shop from Palmina“s parents and the future Atelier owf Palma il Giovane (right side) and the Scuola (in the middle)

Palmina studied the new music score very interested and exercised some parts, especially the part (3) of „Water, Thunder, Wind“.
Palmina understood that this is the „Thinking on each other Melody“ (see par 1-2) in the „Mirror“-Version:  Melody moving down is mirrowed and transformed moving up and melody up is mirrowed to notes moving down.

Palmina smiled and Palma could feel it.

Now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

      * * *

1563, Venice.

A little 6 year old girl is bringing a little basket toa palazzo of the old wise Painting Master Titian.
She is wearing a typical bakery shop working dress and smiled friendly.
Before she could enter the fine Palazzo, suddenly she saw a few man carrying a long itter with a famous old man inside.
She stopped and saw that whole Venice had orange oil lamps in their windows.
She rememberes that her mother said today to her that this is done to honour the great and famous artist architect, sculptor, painter, writer and composer Michelangelo (1) who will come today to visit Master Titian in his  famous Titian School.

Later Palmina entered the rooms to bring fine fresh breads for master Titian he loves so much.
Very shy but smiling she stands with her basket.at the door of the huge room.
„With best wishes and greetings from  our bakery shop…“, Palmina said innocent and waited till she was allowed to bring the basked to old Master Titian.

  Master Michelangelo was now also there and they had an important talk about the future of the Venice Titian Art School – about the question who should be the keeper of the Venetian painting shool.
During the Pest Pandemy they had often, to close the school and a lot of people died in Venice (30 percent).
A hard time for whole Europe.
Master Titian feels more and more weak because he had also the Virus but survived.
Now he is only feeling weaker and weaker.
So the little breads are giving him a little bit joy and light in his old days.
He took a bread and asked Michelangelo also to take one.

„..This is my student Palma il Giovane…“ Master Titian said to Master Michelangelo.
The very young Palma il Giovane smiled and nodded shy to Master Michelangelo.

„Since one year he is working in the closest circle of my best students…I asked him to move from Rome back to Venice to stay here…
Here are some good paintings and his amazing drawings and some made by him. I am so proud to have him…“.

  Palmina looked shy to Palma il Giovane and to his paintings while she is holding her little basked with her breads.

Suddenly a lady with a lute came in the big room and tuned her music instrument.

She nodded friendly and sat down on her chair which was on a little wooden stage on the other wall of yhe big room.

Michelangelo whispered to Titian:“Oh, She is your secret model?“ Michelangelo wanted to know.
„She lookes like the women on your beautiful painting „Venus of Urbino“ which is now in Rome at Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino.
„Yes, I know, Duke Rovere bought my painting…“ Master Titian said and all his heart and all his weak eyes looked expecting to his secret love his model and musician „Venus of Urbino“.

Now she started to play full of heart and full of love.

Michelangelo, Palma il Giovane and of course Palmina Albina could hear this beautiful house concert.
Palmina opened her mouth and eyes and looked fascinated to the talented lute playing female musician.

The music touched her heart deeply and she listened to every single note.
After a few minutes she observed that Master Titian is feeling better and better like a miracle. The colours of his white-grey skin transformed to white-light-red.
She hold her hand in front of her mouth not to show her emotional surprise about the miracle of music.

Music was like a living, energy like a golden light.
Palmina felt deep in her heart that she wants also to learn to play the lute like her, to give love and light with music.

She wants not only to be a baker shop girl, she wants to became an artist in Venice.

Palmina smiled and then she looked at the student of Master Titian, Palma il Giovane.

Palma smiled back to her and she was lucky.

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision of the year 1563 Palma composed 4 new parts for her:
