Un viaggio iniziatico nel Rinascimento italiano. L’esercizio della curiosità vi porterà ad alzare lo sguardo per guardar lontano, abbracciando i complessi intrecci della storia, e a veder vicino, direttamente dentro le immagini. “Questo non sarà mai un libro di Storia dell’Arte, con le due auliche maiuscole, non assomiglia a uno di quei tomi scolastici che hanno forse lasciato tedio e sonnolenza sui banchi di scuola, ma è piuttosto un viaggio esoterico nelle storie dell’arte.” Forte della sua esperienza di autore e conduttore televisivo, Philippe Daverio non è mai banalmente divulgativo, non intende semplificare fenomeni complessi, ma affronta le vicende degli artisti, delle opere e dei committenti secondo un metodo d’indagine che è diventato la sua cifra personale: sa guardare da lontano o accostarsi per vedere da vicino. Ogni suo nuovo libro è un’avventura che apre nuove prospettive. Il “metodo Daverio” è applicato in questo caso al Rinascimento. Il periodo fondativo della cultura e dell’arte italiana acquista così nuova freschezza e vivacità, prende le mosse dalla pittura di Giotto, “un fulmine nella storia dell’arte”, e si conclude con quel “talentaccio e caratteraccio” di Caravaggio, attraversando la curiosità anarchica di Leonardo, i cagnolini di Tiziano, l’eccentrica sensualità di Parmigianino e i sussulti religiosi di Michelangelo. L’allontanamento dalle categorie canoniche della storia dell’arte e la pratica dello spostamento del punto di vista si rivelano in particolare nelle Daveriologie, pagine nelle quali la curiosità impertinente dell’autore affronta nuove strade di lettura, attraverso accostamenti insoliti, a volte audaci, di capolavori e artisti lontani nel tempo e nello spazio.

L’arte della prima metà del Novecento è un vorticoso susseguirsi di movimenti e “ismi”. Il secolo breve, racchiuso fra l’illuminazione elettrica del cielo di Parigi dall’alto della Tour Eiffel per l’expo del 1889 e il lampo devastante del fungo atomico a Hiroshima, ha forgiato il nostro immaginario. Da qui Philippe Daverio parte per creare un affresco fatto di assonanze e migrazioni, incontri reali e fantastici tra opere e artisti: Klimt, Balla, Kandinskij, Picasso... Un libro-mondo guidato dall’irresistibile libertà del pensiero folle.

Philippe Daverio is one of Italy’s most important contemporary art historians, whose discerning comments about art are voraciously consumed by the public through his writing as editor of the famed magazine Art e Dossier and his platform on a leading Italian television program Passepartout. Now, in his first full-length work of narrative nonfiction, Daverio uses the conceit of creating his own perfect museum gallery and in the process reexamines major artistic masterpieces of Western art. Daverio turns his critical eye on the place of Western art in contemporary twenty-first-century culture and how we relate to art generally. According to Daverio, we relate to the history of art based on views that crystallized in the nineteenth century, and so we look to the past to understand the present, though the present is what truly matters to everyone. Daverio means to challenge this perspective, and guided by his curiosity and personal taste, he examines key masterworks to rediscover the true meaning and power they had before they became commoditized and clichéd. Some distinctive features of this illustrated eBook are: • 800+ full size and detailed images of paintings and drawings. • 280+ artworks with pop-up ability. • 160 thumbnails with links showing the setting of the work and location in its home museum, with informational text. • 92 links to museum websites that house the real works. The Italian-language edition of The Ideal Museum ebook has been awarded the QED Seal (Quality, Excellence, Design)—the premier award for ebooks and book apps—by the council of the Publishing Innovation Awards. This award recognizes the title’s portability and readability, providing the best reading experience possible.

Ideas in Profile: Small Introductions to Big Topics Art has always been part of history. But we often think of it as outside history. When we look at a painting by Raphael, Rembrandt or Rubens it speaks to us directly, but it's also an historical document, part of a living world. Renowned art historian Martin Kemp takes the reader on an extraordinary trip through art, from devotional works to the revolutionary techniques of the Renaissance, from the courtly Masters of the seventeenth century through to the daring avant-garde of the twentieth century and beyond. Along the way we encounter the great names of art history: Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo; Vermeer and Velasquez; Picasso and Pollock. We get under the skin of the many 'isms', schools, styles and epochs. We see the complex sweep of art history with its innovations, collaborations, rivalries, break-throughs and masterpieces. Above all, Kemp puts art in context; art isn't about disembodied images, art itself is history. Part of the Ideas in Profile series, uniquely enlivened with animations and illustrations from the award winning studio Cognitive Media, Art in History is an indispensable, accessible and richly detailed guide to our culture, our history, our heritage and our art. Also available in two ebook formats. Please note that ISBN 9781782831020 is for the usual ebook format and 9781781254110 is for an enhanced edition with additional video and audio which should be used only with tablet devices that are capable of playing this additional content.

A charming portrait of one man’s dreams and schemes, by “the greatest Italian writer of the twentieth century” (The Guardian). In this enchanting book of linked stories, Italo Calvino charts the disastrous schemes of an Italian peasant, an unskilled worker in a drab northern industrial city in the 1950s and ’60s, struggling to reconcile his old country habits with his current urban life. Marcovaldo has a practiced eye for spotting natural beauty and an unquenchable longing for the unspoiled rural world of his imagination. Much to the continuing puzzlement of his wife, his children, his boss, and his neighbors, he chases his dreams and gives rein to his fantasies, whether it’s sleeping in the great outdoors on a park bench, following a stray cat, or trying to catch wasps. Unfortunately, the results are never quite what he anticipates. Spanning from the 1950s to the 1960s, the twenty stories in Marcovaldo are alternately comic and melancholy, farce and fantasy. Throughout, Calvino’s unassuming masterpiece “conveys the sensuous, tangible qualities of life” (The New York Times).

NATIONAL BESTSELLER "Impressively original." —The New York Times "Sparkles in every way. A love letter to the open lonely American heartland...A must-read." —People "The kind of book that restores your faith in humanity." —Toronto Star Welcome to Little Wing. It's a place like hundreds of others, nothing special, really. But for four friends—all born and raised in this small Wisconsin town—it is home. And now they are men, coming into their own or struggling to do so. One of them never left, still working the family farm that has been tilled for generations. But others felt the need to move on, with varying degrees of success. One trades commodities, another took to the rodeo circuit, and one of them even hit it big as a rock star. And then there's Beth, a woman who has meant something special in each of their lives. Now all four are brought together for a wedding. Little Wing seems even smaller than before. While lifelong bonds are still strong, there are stresses—among the friends, between husbands and wives. There will be heartbreak, but there will also be hope, healing, even heroism as these memorable people learn the true meaning of adult friendship and love. Seldom has the American heartland been so richly and accurately portrayed. Though the town may have changed, the one thing that hasn't is the beauty of the Wisconsin farmland, the lure of which, in Nickolas Butler's hands, emerges as a vibrant character in the story. Shotgun Lovesongs is that rare work of fiction that evokes a specific time and place yet movingly describes the universal human condition. It is, in short, a truly remarkable book—a novel that once read will never be forgotten.
