Dall'hic et nunc all'ubique et Semper?
According to Walter Benjamin the aura of a work of art lies in its unique existence in a particular place (“here and now”), but certain copies/facsimiles – like those discussed in this paper – seem to challenge this point of view and realize Paul Valéry’s prediction about the possibility to produce everywhere, any time, the “system of sensations” generated by the originals.
