Through Time and the City

Rome Is Love Spelled Backward Enjoying Art And Architecture In The Eternal City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Through Time and the City by Kristi Cheramie,Antonella De Michelis Book Summary:

Through Time and the City: Notes on Rome offers a new approach to exploring cities. Using Rome as a guide, the book follows familiar sites, geographies, and characters in search of their role within a larger narrative that includes the environmental processes required to generate enough space and material for the city, the emergent ecologies to which its buildings play host, and the social patterns its various structures help to organize. Through Time and the City argues that Rome is made and unmade by an endlessly evolving chorus that has, for better or worse, gained geological legitimacy; that the city absorbs and emits countless artifacts in its search for collective identity; that the city is a platform for the constant staging of negotiations between agents (humans, buildings, plants, animals, pathogens, goods, waste, water) that drive and are driven by the entanglements of climate and culture. This book provides textual and visual frameworks for identifying the material traces, emergent patterns, or speculated futures that expose a city as inseparable from its capacity to change.

An Art Lover's Guide to Florence by Judith Anne Testa Book Summary:

"No city but Florence contains such an intense concentration of art produced in such a short span of time ... while most guidebooks offer only brief descriptions of a large number of works, with little discussion of the historical background, Judith Testa gives a fresh perspective on the rich and brilliant art of the Florentine Renaissance ... Concentrating on a number of the greatest works by such masters as Botticelli and MIchelangelo, Testa explains each piece in terms of what it meant to the people who produced it and for whom it was made ..."--Back cover.

Living in Rome

Rome Is Love Spelled Backward Enjoying Art And Architecture In The Eternal City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Living in Rome by Bruno Racine Book Summary:

This is Rome as you have never seen it. Through the perceptive text of Bruno Racine, current director of the French Academy in Rome, and the stunning photographs of Alain Fleischer, this book reveals aspects of the city that most visitors miss. Stone and Color Rome's stone, brick and plaster shimmer in countless hues, according to the time of day and the season. Goethe and Stendhal celebrated the incomparable light, which is a never-ending delight-- particularly sweet at sunset, when the city seems to be ablaze. Strolling in Rome Rome is made for strolling, with its narrow winding streets, multitude of squares and fountains glittering in the sunlight. For those prepared to take it at a leisurely pace, the city is an endless source of surprises. Roman Gardens A vestige of the rural Rome of the past, entire hills have retained their cloak of greenery. Public or private, the city's parks and gardens offer another vision of the city, in the aromatic shade of orange trees and umbrella pines. Roman Interiors A passion for art has graced Roman homes for centuries. From magnificent palaces to modern apartments, with unequalled opulence or complete simplicity, the city continually affirms its love of beauty in all its forms. Roman Rendezvous The Rome that Romans love: museums, ignored by the tour operators, traditional artisans, antique dealers, hotels with panoramic views, charming cafés and restaurants. Connoisseur's Guide The best addresses and tips from Romans. Where to go for a room with a view, a good meal or a cappuccino. Exploring the riches of the museums and antique dealers. Where to find exceptional artisans and chic fashion clothing. Discovering the many sights in the environs of Rome and enjoying the big events of the year in the city itself. Rome has grown since the days when it was the capital of the Roman Empire, but this incomparable city has lost none of its unique charm. It is a place which enjoys a special privilege: time. Time, be it that of history or that of everyday life, has a particular quality in Rome. This is the reason why Rome's charm is easier to experience than it is to describe. A person in a hurry might fall in love with the city, but the sheer abundance of artistic riches can all too often be oppressive. Rome's charm will reveal itself more readily to someone who is prepared to discover it at a leisurely pace, without a stopwatch. The art of living in Rome means taking the time to yield to its subtle powers of seduction. A permanent miracle, Rome unites in one love the believer and the atheist, classical rigor and baroque exuberance, attachment to the past and a passion for life.

Pensées pour moi-même

Rome Is Love Spelled Backward Enjoying Art And Architecture In The Eternal City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pensées pour moi-même by Marc Aurèle,Epictète Book Summary:

Texte intégral révisé suivi des biographies de Marc-Aurèle et d'Épictète. Édition enrichie des deux chefs-d'oeuvre de la philosophie stoïcienne: les "Pensées" de Marc-Aurèle et le "Manuel" d'Epictète. Marc Aurèle, à Carnuntum, écrit ses "Pensées pour moi-même" en douze livres, sans doute pour oublier le tumulte de la journée précédente, passée à se battre. Stoïcisme ? Certes, bien que son œuvre ne soit pas totalement un traité de philosophie stoïcienne - elle ne comprend ni le dogme impitoyable d'Épictète ni le ton professoral et théorique de Sénèque -, elle a quelque chose de tout à fait propre à Marc-Aurèle, c'est-à-dire la manière humaine, intime et émouvante dont il transforme la doctrine en un constant examen de conscience. Le constat de vanité et de caducité des choses le pousse à chercher une raison profonde à l'univers. Toute réalité est l'élément d'un organisme divin, unique, ordonné et harmonieux. L'homme, composé de trois principes: corps, âme, esprit, occupe une position centrale dans le cosmos. L'esprit, élément divin en chaque individu, guide son action. La prise de conscience de sa participation au divin doit ramener l'homme à sa vie intérieure, pour qu'il retrouve la paix. Du célèbre "Manuel" d'Epictète, recueilli par l'historien Flavius Arrien dans ses "Epicteti dissertationes", il ne nous reste que les quatre premiers livres. Considérant la notion de liberté, Épictète nous dit ici qu'elle est en soi le bien suprême. Toutefois, la liberté dont il est question n'est pas celle que nous accordent les circonstances extérieures, mais bien cette liberté qui naît au plus profond de notre personnalité. Elle se conquiert par degrés, par la volonté avec l'aide de la raison et de la sagesse. Pour le stoïcien, le bien est en effet une donnée de la conscience, et le sage, qui sait distinguer entre les deux formes de liberté, donnée ou conquise, est intégralement libre. Rien ni personne ne peut le priver de sa liberté.

La Longue Traîne

Rome Is Love Spelled Backward Enjoying Art And Architecture In The Eternal City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

La Longue Traîne by Chris Anderson Book Summary:

Dans ce livre prophétique devenu un « classique », Chris Anderson nous démontre comment Internet modifie en profondeur les mécanismes de l'économie. Qu'arrive-t-il en effet quand tout devient accessible à tout le monde ? En réduisant les coûts fixes liés au stockage et à la distribution, voire à la production, Internet fait naître une économie d'abondance : tous les films, tous les CD, tous les livres sont disponibles en permanence. A l'augmentation de l'offre correspond une augmentation de la demande quasi infinie. Dès lors, la réussite n'est plus l'apanage d'un petit nombre d'oeuvres ou top-sellers, concentrant l'essentiel des efforts de promotion et de marketing. Les autres produits, qui constituent les « longues traînes », rapportent parfois jusqu'à 90 % du chiffre d'affaires ! Ainsi, les nouvelles technologies transforment les marchés de masse en une masse de niches. Comment les techniques du marketing doivent-elles s'adapter pour relever ce défi ? C'est la question que traite Chris Anderson dans un nouveau chapitre de cette seconde édition. Avec cette conviction : les marchés de demain appartiennent à ceux qui sauront tirer parti du phénomène.

Tendre est la nuit

Rome Is Love Spelled Backward Enjoying Art And Architecture In The Eternal City [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Tendre est la nuit by F. Scott Fitzgerald Book Summary:

Tendre est la nuit est l'histoire, largement autobiographique, de la décomposition d'un être fait pour être aimé, trop romantique pour pouvoir résister à son époque, trop tendre, malgré son apparente désinvolture, pour savoir sagement vieillir. C'est plus particulièrement l'histoire de l'amour de Dick et de Nicole, dont nous faisons connaissance à travers les yeux émerveillés d'une jeune actrice qui ne résiste pas au charme de Dick. Ce couple très uni cache un secret. Nicole a été soignée par Dick, médecin psychiatre. L'amour qu'elle a porté à Dick a fait de leur union une nécessité. Un jour viendra pourtant où ils devront se séparer... Mais le lecteur aura vécu avec eux les plus belles années d'une vie de loisir rendue magique par la richesse, les voyages. C'est un extraordinaire témoignage sur la vie d'entre les deux guerres qui nous est offert, un témoignage qui ne va pas sans une douloureuse nostalgie, un livre ensorcelé. Ce roman domine, avec Gatsby le Magnifique, l'oeuvre de Francis Scott Fitzgerald, l'émouvant représentant de la fameuse « génération perdue ».
