"This is the first complete translation of the biographies of fifteen artists, including Annibale Carracci, Caravaggio, Rubens, Van Dyck, and Poussin, written by the seventeenth-century antiquarian Giovan Pietro Bellori. Originally conceived as a continuation of Vasari's famous Lives, it is a fundamental source for seventeenth-century Italian art and artistic theory, providing detailed descriptions of extant and lost works of art, while casting light on the cultural politics of contemporary Rome and the relations between Rome and France. The importance of Bellori's Lives lies in the scrupulous documentation of artists, many of whom he knew personally; the author's detailed descriptions of their works; and his exposition of the classicist theory of art in the introductory lecture, the Idea. This volume contains the twelve Lives published in the original edition of 1672 and three Lives (Guido Reni, Andrea Sacchi, and Carlo Maratti) that survive in manuscript form and that were published for the first time in 1942"--Jacket

Making beauty : the Ginori Porcelain Manufactory and its progeny of statues( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The porcelain of Doccia made its mark on the history of artistic manufactory with its refined production inspired by Antique masterpieces. The catalogue, rich with illustrations, accompanies the exhibit staged by the Museo Nazionale del Bargello, providing useful tools for visitors so as to reconstruct and examine the development of the artefacts of this particular production technique, in general, and specifically to trace the history of the Doccia manufactory's success. The essays are divided in two parts. The first reconstructs the history of the manufactory opened by the Marquis Ginori in 1737 and the state of art produced in studios of porcelain. The second provides a series of case studies dedicated to the more interesting themes regarding the reproduction in porcelain of great ancient sculptures, as well as some more significant works realized by the manufactory, like the Tempietto of Cortona or the great Fireplace. The catalogue concludes with a series of entries elaborating on the 17 works featured in the exhibit

Istruzioni per l'uso del futuro : il patrimonio culturale e la democrazia che verrà by Tomaso Montanari( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Italian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Come si impara a essere cittadini, in Italia? Sono fondamentali la famiglia, la scuola; ma da millenni qualcos'altro ci educa a essere quello che siamo, ci lega al nostro passato e ci permette di costruire il nostro futuro: questa cosa si chiama "patrimonio culturale", ed è l'altra lingua degli italiani. Ne fanno parte il paesaggio, le opere d'arte, le biblioteche, gli archivi, i siti archeologici... Chi lo ritiene "il petrolio d'Italia", un magazzino di oggetti da affittare al magnate di turno o da svendere nell'ennesima mostra-evento, è un nostro nemico: ci sta togliendo un bene primario come l'aria, ci sta privando di un diritto fondamentale, come la salute o l'istruzione. Per questo, dopo aver denunciato i disastri della politica culturale italiana nelle "Pietre e il popolo", Tomaso Montanari scrive un libro sull'Italia possibile, su un progetto di comunità basato sulla cultura, su ciò che potrà essere la Repubblica italiana quando sapremo render finalmente concreto l'attualissimo disegno della Costituzione. "Istruzioni per l'uso del futuro" è un piccolo alfabeto civile: ventuno idee che ci mostrano come per trasformare un paese non bastano le nostalgie o le indignazioni ma servono responsabilità e conoscenza.--

Contro le mostre by Tomaso Montanari( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

È un vizio italiano : produrre mostre blockbuster. Gli ingredienti sono sempre gli stessi : Caravaggio e Leonardo, gli impressionisti, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dalì e Warhol. Ne facciamo circa diecimila l'anno, ma dovremmo avere seri dubbi su questa sarabanda. Innanzitutto perché si tratta quasi sempre di puro intrattenimento: a pagamento, e di bassa qualità. Quasi mai c'è dietro una ricerca originale, e quasi sempre non c'è nulla da imparare : la verità è che privati senza scrupoli e pubbliche autorità senza un progetto mettono a rischio pezzi unici, spesso di valore altissimo. Dobbiamo riprendere a fare esposizioni serie, libere, educative. E c'è un'alternativa più radicale : rompere la gabbia degli eventi, e rituffarci nel fitto contesto di arte e paesaggio che rende l'Italia unica al mondo. Riallacciare il passato al presente, attraverso una conoscenza vera e libera. Fuori dal mercato, nel cuore delle nostre città
