奧迪汽車的廣告 前沒多久有一個奧迪汽車的廣告(Audi CF)，以史湯達爾(Stendhal)症候群，來形容完美至極到令人想逃脫的心靈感受，讓人印象深刻。它的廣告配樂也值得一提，旋律非常奔放，高昂且熱情，充滿想像的空間。那首音樂正是孟德爾頌的E小調小提琴協奏曲的第一樂章(Mendelssohn:Violin Concetro in E minor, Chapter1. Allergro molto appassionato)，值得反覆聆聽。
Stendhal syndrome or Stendhal's syndrome is a psychosomatic illness that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, confusion and even hallucinations when the individual is exposed to an overdose of beautiful art, paintings and artistic masterpieces.
It is named after the famous 19th century French author Stendhal (pseudonym of Marie-Henri Beyle), who gave an early detailed description of experiencing the phenomenon his 1817 visit to Florence, Italy which he published in his book Naples and Florence: A Journey from Milan to Reggio.
Although there are many descriptions of people becoming dizzy and fainting while taking in the art in Florence, especially at the Uffizi, from the early 19th century on, this was not described as a specific syndrome until 1979, when it was written up by Italian psychiatrist Graziella Magherini, who observed and described more than 100 similar cases among tourists and visitors in Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance.
There is also a horror film called The Stendhal Syndrome (penned and directed by Dario Argento) in which a policewoman suffering from Stendhal syndrome is trapped by a serial killer in a museum.
