ABOUT “TIME FOR BOOKS” IN MILAN

“Tempo di Libri’ (Time for Books) is the name of the new book fair that will take place in Milan from April 19-23, 2017. The fair has been organised at the Milan Rho trade fair centre after the long-established Turin book fair lost the confidence of Italian publishers earlier this year.  The programme is to be overseen by Chiara Valerio, Pierdomenico Baccalario and Giovanni Peresson with oversight from a scientific committee responsible for drawing up the guidelines for the general content of the event. The logo is of a book illuminated by the sun that doubles as a sun dial.

The new fair aims to promote a new “interactive” way of approaching books and reading, organisers said. “There will be the much-loved authors but we would like the public to take part,” said Renata Gorgani, president of the new Fabbrica del Libro in Milan. “We would like the fair to be a huge meeting place where non-readers also come,” she added. “I think it will be useful for Turin too that the fair is being held here,”

 

 

 

 

EASTER BUNNY GOES ON POP ART… FUNNY DRAWINGS FROM ITALIAN NURSERY SCHOOL’S KIDS

DRAWINGS BY KIDS OF THE NURSERY SCHOOL IN ORIO AL SERIO (BERGAMO, ITALY)

The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. Originating among German Lutherans, the “Easter Hare” originally played the role of a judge, evaluating whether children were good or disobedient in behaviour at the start of the season of Eastertide.

The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy, and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus or the Christkind, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holidays. The custom was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Franckenau‘s De ovis paschalibus (‘About Easter Eggs’) in 1682 referring to a German tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter eggs for the children. (From “Wikipedia”).

FLORENCE: LEONARDO DA VINCI’S ADORATION OF THE MAGI HAS RETURNED TO UFFIZI GALLERY AFTER RESTORATION

Leonardo da Vinci’s Adoration of the Magi has recovered much of its original colouring after a painstaking restoration. The artwork has returned to Florence’s Uffizi Gallery after being taken to the Opificio Delle Pietre Dure institute for restoration in 2011 due to serious deterioration of the surface.
The painting will be the star of a special show opening on Tuesday after the restoration conducted with the help of the financial support of the Amici degli Uffizi (Friends of the Uffizi) association.

The panel was commissioned from the Augustinian Friars for the church of San Donato in Scopeto in 1481. The artist left it unfinished after moving to Milan in 1482, prompting the friars to ask Filippino Lippi to produce another altarpiece on the same subject. That work was completed in 1496. Leonardo’s painting, the biggest survivor panel of the master at 246 x 243 cm, was housed at the Benci family’s properties in Florence for some time before entering the Medici collections.

THAT ASTONISHING WORLD ON A WASTE CONTAINER: PICTURES FROM A “VISUAL ART” EXPERIENCE

 

This video presents images of a “visual art” experience I led with students of “Sylos” School Institute in Bitonto (Bari, Italy) directed by prof. Angela Maria Mangini. For my project-research named “Lacer/actions”, I guided them through the streets of the city, to discover that even a waste container hides an astonishing world, as shown in the clip…

Immagini di un’esperienza “visuale” che ha coinvolto gli studenti dell’IC “Sylos” di Bitonto, diretto dalla prof.ssa Angela Maria Mangini, nel contesto del mio progetto-ricerca Lacer/azioni. Ho ha guidato gli allievi per le vie della città, a scoprire che anche un cassonetto dei rifiuti nasconde un mondo…”sbalorditivo”, come appunto mostrato nel video.
