The art of cooking : the first modern cookery book by Maestro Martino( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maestro Martino of Como has been called the first celebrity chef, and his extraordinary treatise on Renaissance cookery, The Art of Cooking, is the first known culinary guide to specify ingredients, cooking times and techniques, utensils, and amounts. This vibrant document is also essential to understanding the forms of conviviality developed in Central Italy during the Renaissance, as well as their sociopolitical implications. In addition to the original text, this first complete English translation of the work includes a historical essay by Luigi Ballerini and fifty modernized recipes by acclaimed Italian chef Stefania Barzini."--Jacket
On crimes and punishments by Cesare Beccaria( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published in 1764, On Crimes and Punishments by Cesare Beccaria (1738-1794) was greeted with much attention and debate in Europe and North America. Intellectuals and rulers alike commended the work and looked to it for ideas that might help guide the various reform projects of the day. The equality of every citizen before the law, the right to a fair trial, the abolition of the death penalty, and the elimination of the use of torture in criminal interrogations are but a few of the fundamental concepts articulated by Beccaria." "This volume provides a new English translation of Beccaria's classic treatise as well as responses by a number of his contemporaries. Of particular interest is Voltaire's commentary on Beccaria's text, included in its entirety. The supplementary materials testify not only to the power and significance of Beccaria's ideas, but to their controversial nature. While many supporters proclaimed that the work established principles of enduring importance to any society grappling with matters of political and criminal justice, a number of critics roundly denounced it, fearing that the book's attack on feudal traditions and its call to separate law from religion (and thus crime from sin) would result in political instability and undermine the longstanding privileges and powers of church and state." "Long appreciated as a foundational text in criminology, Beccaria's arguments still resonate with current debates over capital punishment, political torture, and human rights abuses. This splendid new translation brings Beccaria's influential work to a wider audience, while providing important historical and political context."--Jacket

We, the divided : ethos, politics and culture in post-war Italy, 1943-2006 by Remo Bodei( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this account of Italian politics and culture from the founding of the Italian Republic to the present day, philosopher Remo Bodei examines Italian society in one of the most exhilarating and intriguing periods of its history. Following World War II and the defeat of Fascism, the reconstruction of the country and onset of the Cold War brought new challenges to Italy. The Italian people--whose sense of national identity has always been precarious--were divided between the competing political passions and ideologies of Catholicism and Communism, and compelled to negotiate these differences against the backdrop of American cultural and economic hegemony and the utopian enticements of a more equitable society purportedly represented by the Soviet Union. Alternating between imaginative historical research and sharp theoretical analysis, Bodei reconstructs this process of cultural negotiation, showing how the ethos of the Italians was parsed in specific spheres--such as the family, the military, political parties, religion, the judiciary, and organized crime--and the difficulties these divisions raise for the construction of Italian national identity."--Publisher's website

The gallery of memory : literary and iconographic models in the age of the printing press by Lina Bolzoni( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lina Bolzoni's impressive study of the memory culture of sixteenth-century Italy appears here for the first time in English translation. Since its original incarnation as La stanza della memoria: Modelli letterari e iconografici nell'et+ della stampa, published by Einaudi of Torino in 1995, Bolzoni's study has been praised by critics and ranked with the classic texts in its field - those by Paolo Rossi, Frances Yates and Mary Carruthers.The book takes as its starting point a striking paradox: that the antique tradition of the art of memory - created by an oral culture - reached its moment of greatest diffusion during an age that saw the birth of the printed book. Bolzoni's examination of this phenomenon, in which archaic and modern elements came together in a precarious equilibrium, reveals the profound ties that existed at the time between memory and creativity, and between words and images.Drawing on the multiplicity of practices that relied on techniques of memory, Bolzoni presents diagrams, cipher alphabets, rebuses and emblemlike pictures characteristic of the late-Medieval and early-modern periods, indicating their use for literary games and preaching. In doing so, she skilfully reconstructs a particular mentality, a way of apprehending words and images that was of central importance for a long period of time but that has since been forgotten
The 1501 Aldine edition of Le cose volgari by Francesco Petrarca( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in Italian and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Venetian printer and scholar Aldo Manuzio (1449 or 1450-1515) was the first printer to produce so-called libri portatiles (portable books), editions of texts without scholarly commentary in octavo, a format that until that time was used only for prayer books. Manuzio published this edition of the poems of Francesco Petrarca (also known as Petrarch, 1304-74) in July 1501, thus producing an outstanding example of his innovative abilities as a printer. Manuzio's Petrarch was the first portable book in Italian. It was printed using the italic types introduced by Aldo, which he devised by imitating the handwriting of his time. The text itself was edited by the scholar Pietro Bembo, using a manuscript of Petrarch. Most of Petrarch's writing was in Latin but he is best known for his Italian lyric poems. The famous Aldine Collection of the Berlin State Library boasts three copies of the Petrarch, the paper copy and two illuminated and illustrated copies printed on parchment. For example, Ebd 58/59 has an armorial frontispiece representing the noble Priuli family from Venice, while Ald. Ren. 28,5 <2. Ex.> has a portrait of Petrarca instead
