Hi everybody!
This is my first topic.
I'm doing a translation, but because of my very bad English I have difficulty in doing it from the very beginning...
I don't know how to translate the phrase "In chiaroscuro outline":

"In chiaroscuro outline, on a high mountain plateau at sunset, as in a Bergman film, the three major ethical principles march entrained along the landscape..."

I think it could be something like "delineati in chiaroscuro", but I'm not sure. If someone could help me I'd be very grateful.
Thank you.

    Ciao, in questo contesto io personalmente interpreto "outline" come "profilo (dell'immagine)". Il profilo in chiaroscuro.... oppure il profilo dell'immagine in chiaroscuro...Bye.Benzene
