  • Il Barone dell'Alba: Uno scritto settecentesco (Italian by Stefano Valente

    By Stefano Valente

    «Alterne enterprise, viaggi e peripezie, come li visse il giovine Francesco Antonio, Barone di Santamaria di Calòria, narrati da lui medesimo».
    “In un silenzio anomalo, inadeguato, gli zoccoli dei quattro cavalli, provati dal viaggio, riecheggiavano ovattati sul piancito di strade deserte. Non v’era oro né argento lungo i marciapiedi e, più inquietante di tutto, non c’era anima viva according to through. Solamente qualche soldato motionless e a capo chino, in una guardia che già combatteva col sonno, e alcune donne da conio coperte con lunghi scialli incolori, ondeggianti e frangiati. Quella period Doràntia, dunque. Mi ripromisi di rimandare qualsiasi risoluzione all’indomani,
    di godermi questo che period l’inizio del mio Grand-tour.”

    La fantastic del secolo deli Lumi: il viaggio di formazione del giovane barone borbonico Francesco Antonio si trasforma in una rocambolesca sequenza di avventure cui fanno da sfondo l’Italia e il Mediterraneo, los angeles Sicilia e Malta, fino all’Egitto delle antichissime divinità teriomorfe e dei loro orripilanti misteri.
    Sulle tracce di un enigmatico ritratto di donna il barone di Santamaria di Calòria percorrerà i mari e gli Stati, in compagnia di preti avventurieri e bestemmiatori, di sbirri negromanti dall’ambigua bellezza, braccato dai sicari della Chiesa e dalle spie dell’Inquisizione. Rapimenti, duelli, le leading esperienze dei sensi. Dalle sabbie del deserto africano al ritorno nella città dorata dove ogni cosa ha avuto inizio, l. a. Storia si fonde con l’Immaginario.

E soprattutto scorre davanti ai nostri occhi il racconto della Notte che incalza invano il Mattino e le sue rivelazioni: poiché sa che, quando infine li avrà raggiunti, non sarà in grado di riconoscerli.
    Verità e Finzione, Ragione e Follia, Voce e Silenzio, si danno convegno according to raccontare una vita.

  • Caravaggio. Il fuoco oscuro (Arcipelago) (Italian Edition) by Linda Murray,M. E. Albanese

    By Linda Murray,M. E. Albanese

    Tradotta in keeping with l. a. prima volta in Italia, Linda Murray racconta l. a. storia di uno dei più geniali e controversi artisti di tutti i tempi: Michelangelo Merisi, detto il Caravaggio

    «… un integrale, veridico ritratto di un artista che, in un certo senso, è un ponte tra Tiziano e Rembrandt… Linda Murray, a mio avviso, cattura in maniera convincente e commuovente l. a. natura e il carattere di Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, in particolar modo quella di pittore. L’autrice tratteggia in modo straordinariamente efficace il suo modo di lavorare e il drammatico mondo in cui ha vissuto, dipinto, amato e litigato» David Weiss

    Caravaggio dipinse magnifici quadri in cui l. a. rappresentazione artistica rispecchia l. a. violenza che ha caratterizzato los angeles sua vita reale. Il suo nome, infatti, emerge di continuo nei registri della polizia romana: l’offesa a due donne, il ferimento di un capo delle guardie, l. a. causa in step with diffamazione portata avanti da un altro pittore in line with «versi offensivi», l’aggressione a un oste, il lancio di pietre contro le finestre di un’abitazione e, infine, l’uccisione di un uomo in una rissa, nella quale riuscì a malapena a salvarsi. Ottenuta los angeles commissione del gran maestro Wignacourt di decorare los angeles chiesa di l. a. Valletta, si rifugiò a Malta, ma fu ferito durante un litigio e imprigionato. In seguito fuggì a Napoli, dove, nel corso di una rissa in una locanda, fu sfigurato al punto da divenire irriconoscibile. Durante los angeles convalescenza si ammalò di febbre, e morì all’età di soli trentanove anni.
    Caravaggio. Il fuoco oscuro racconta in quattro fasi l. a. vita del pittore: los angeles giovinezza dell’artista e il suo apprendistato a Milano; l. a. protezione, quasi miracolosa, di un grande mecenate; i primi, misteriosi anni precedenti l. a. sua andata a Roma, durante i quali incontra il Monsignore, uno straordinario principe fattosi prete, e Maddalena, los angeles donna che poserà in step with le sue opere e diverrà los angeles sua amante; infine le sue peregrinazioni in esilio dopo l. a. fuga da Roma a Napoli, Malta, Palermo, in line with poi tornare nuovamente a Napoli.
    Attraverso Gian, personaggio fittizio, assistente devoto di Caravaggio, Linda Murray descrive e illumina brillantemente l’appassionante esistenza dell’artista, intrecciando abilmente i fili della turbolenta carriera di Caravaggio in un racconto coinvolgente ed emozionante.
