THE THIRD EYE (THE FIRST TWO ARE OURS…): THE VIDEO

 

The video shows my new collage for Lacer/actions project. It’s all made with little pieces of waste paper of advertising posters. The title is “The Third Eye” (the first two are ours …). Sizes: 74 x 44 cms. For info: funtasyeditrice@gmail.com

LA MODA E L’ARREDO DEL ‘600: DA VEDERE A FIRENZE A PALAZZO DAVANZATI

OKAY!

Al Museo di Palazzo Davanzati di Firenze è aperta da domenica 8 dicembre 2019, e fino al 13 aprile 2020,  la mostra Bellezza e nobili ornamenti nella moda e nell’arredo del Seicento. L’idea dell’esposizione è nata dall’acquisizione, promossa dai Musei del Bargello per Palazzo Davanzati, di un rarissimo e inedito corpus di disegni per ricami e merletti databili alla prima metà del XVII secolo e apparsi sul mercato antiquario nel 2018. Si tratta di una delle più estese raccolte esistenti di disegni di merletti e ricami costituita da 105 fogli, centodue carte ad inchiostro e tre a grafite e sanguigna, giunte fino a noi in ottimo stato conservativo e attribuibili per la gran parte alla firma dello stesso autore, Giovanni Alfonso Samarco da Bari, un disegnatore di ambito meridionale dall’indubbio talento grafico la cui identità rimane ancora oggi ignota.

Attorno a questi disegni per grandi colletti, bordure e fregi…

THE CRACKS FILES / IS IT A SHATTERED SKY DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING?

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project which investigates and explores the incredible dimension of the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings billboards. Since 2009 I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks (yes, cracks are maybe another metaphor of Life, as well as the waste-paper…). All the Cracks pics are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images. So, welcome to Cracks world, where matter is broken but not split…As you can see in this image. This image may look like a painting depicting a sky that has shattered under the blows of human stupidity …Or due to global warming. But more simply it is a macro picture of the cracks on a sign at the Monterotondo train station, Rome.

PARIS-SACLAY UNIVERSITY CREATES THE CENTRE FOR QUANTUM SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

 

 

qUANTUM PARIS 2qUANTUM PARIS 

Paris-Saclay University is a major player in the field of quantum science and technology in France and around the world. In partnership with several leading manufacturers and research organizations, it announced the creation of QUANTUM, an interdisciplinary centre for quantum science and technology in Paris-Saclay.

Major progress in quantum science has been made over the past decade. The entry into play of major industrialists and the mastery of quantum technologies are perceived by states as a crucial issue for their sovereignty.

In this context, where a technological revolution is underway at the international level to exploit the specific properties of quantum mechanics such as quantum superposition, entanglement and control of individual quantum systems, the strengths of Paris-Saclay University contribute to the research and development of these strategic areas of quantum science and technology.

Sylvie Retailleau announces the creation of QUANTUM at Paris-Saclay University: “The 40 research teams in our scope, most of which are the result of a close partnership with major organizations such as the CNRS, CEA and INRIA, represent more than 35% of the research effort in France, making Paris-Saclay University one of the cradles of the second quantum revolution at the highest international level. Equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and unique know-how in nanotechnologies and ultimate instrumentation, our activity has seen the rise of spintronics, the violation of Bell’s inequalities, the first quantum communications, the first superconducting qubits, and the emergence of mesoscopic physics,” says Sylvie Retailleau, President of Paris-Saclay University. Invited by Thales to the 2019 Innovation Days, she today announced the creation of QUANTUM, the quantum science and technology centre at the University of Paris-Saclay.

All the laboratories in the Paris-Saclay area, whose know-how is based on the work of joint research units led by the CNRS, CEA and INRIA in particular, are the cornerstones of the field. They support the ambitions and actions of the centre, within higher education and research institutions (UPSud, UVSQ, ENS Paris-Saclay, Institut d’Optique Graduate school, CentraleSupélec) and national research organisations. Alongside them, major French and international manufacturers, Thales, Air Liquide, EDF Lab, ATOS and IBM, are already showing their support.

Quantum@Université Paris-Saclay is organized to:

– strengthen basic research and interdisciplinarity in research in order to accelerate technological progress and develop the necessary links between different fields of physics and between several disciplines (physics, engineering, computer science and mathematics);

– intensify interdisciplinary initial training to broaden our students’ knowledge base in the field and employment opportunities;

– develop further education for technicians, engineers and private decision-makers;

– stimulate early links between research, innovation and industry to enable the rapid exploitation of scientific progress and encourage the emergence of new concepts.

About Paris-Saclay University

To face the challenge of international competition in education, research and innovation, 13 of the most prestigious institutions in France form Paris-Saclay University and combine their programmes and research in order to compete at the highest international level.

Paris-Saclay University offers a wide range of education programmes, from bachelor’s degrees to doctorates in fields involving natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities. There are currently 65,000 students in the founding and associate institutions, including 9,000 master’s students, 4,600 doctoral candidates. www.universite-paris-saclay.fr/en

GIARDINO DI BOBOLI (FIRENZE): QUELLE STRAORDINARIE COLLEZIONI DI AGRUMI

OKAY!

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

Il Giardino di Boboli e il Museo del Palazzo del Re Jan III a Wilanów  (Polonia) insieme per valorizzare il proprio patrimonio. Parte da Firenze il progetto “Citri et Aurea” che intende valorizzare le collezioni storiche di agrumi presenti nelle collezioni botaniche delle due istituzioni museali.

Il progetto partito in questi giorni con la visita a Firenze di tre specialisti polacchi, porterà all’approfondimento della conoscenza delle relazioni italo-polacche connesse al giardinaggio ed allo scambio di conoscenze e buone pratiche inerenti la creazione di una collezione di agrumi e il suo successivo mantenimento.

Il Giardino di Boboli vanta una collezione botanica straordinaria e unica al mondo, con oltre 500 vasi di agrumi di circa 90 varietà diverse. Oltre una ventina di queste sono antiche varietà medicee. La collezione di agrumi di Boboli è una delle più importanti in Europa a livello botanico avviata dallo stesso Cosimo I nel ‘500.
