Abstract

The word “violence” has a negative aura that suggests aggression, anger, intimidation, rudeness, brutality. By contrast the idea of the “aesthetic‟ means for many people beauty, artistic activity. Violence and aesthetics can be seen as a contradiction. However, both terms can perfectly relate to the sport. Violence appears constantly linked to physical activity, certainly as a problem but also as an integral part. No one dares to deny the beauty, the aesthetics of sport. The question is, can they be both at once? And if so, in what context?. This text will try to establish which is the aim pursued by the aesthetics of violence and what idea is intended to communicate. Ultimately we will try to interpret its language. Obviously this is a language addressed to our unconscious, so that it becomes necessary to determine its key features, since indeed the image of strength, of sports violence has been used again and again by political regimes of all kinds, democratic or totalitarian, to send a message according to their ideology. This fact leads us to another paradox. The message intended to convey is not the privilege of an ideology. From one end to another of the political spectrum the image of sports is used to convey completely different values. We will try to understand what message is wanted to convey with that “official” image projected by sport in its major events and utopian models, focusing specially in a paradigmatic case, Nazism.
