Annunciazione is a surface, and as such extends in two dimensions only: the horizontal and the vertical one.
As a photograph “the event is never transcended for the sake of something else […]. Photograph is like the gesture of the child pointing his finger at something and saying: that, there it is, lo! but says nothing else; a photograph cannot be transformed (spoken) philosophically, it is wholly ballasted by the contingency of which it is the weightless, transparent envelope.” (Roland Barthes)
Sound breaks the image and go beyond the two-dimensional. It’s the unique element giving volume, hence color, to what is shown on the scene. This has the purpose of entering in a narrative dynamics, only sticked to the visual element which is actually empty.
The narrative structure that is shown on a TV screen exists only to allow the show to start, go on and finish.
