Porque sim!

"(...) when one is touched by the beauty of a sunset, a Beethoven string quartet, a novel by James Joyce, or a painting by Giorgio Morandi, one cannot help thinking that the experienced feeling of pleasure ought to be shared by others. Notwithstanding its logical singularity, the pure judgement of taste - i.e. the judgement of beauty - requires or 'demands' everyone else's agreement. Yet the demand for universal agreement is very peculiar, since it cannot be based on conceptual arguments or proofs and is only determined by one's own feeling of pleasure or displeasure." (Bart Vandenabeele, "The Subjective Universality od Aesthetic Judgements Revisited", in British Journal of Aesthetics, October 2008)
