Nothing is real : quando i Beatles incontrarono l'Oriente = when the Beatles met the East( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Italian and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), the Beatles--at that point the most famous band in the world--found themselves increasingly drawn to Eastern mysticism, culminating with the band's 1968 trip to India (accompanied, of course, by wives and girlfriends as well as an entourage of friends, assistants and reporters). The journey that John, Paul, George and Ringo made to study at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram would become a key event in the history of Western pop culture: followed breathlessly in the international media, it caused an enormous stir and was fundamental in spreading a certain fascination with the East that influenced music, literature, cinema and fashion at the end of the 1960s. Nothing Is Real takes its title from a memorable line from the Beatles' song "Strawberry Fields Forever." Eastern thinking and spiritual practices felt liberating and modern to a generation looking for alternatives, and the Beatles' trip was a watershed moment, announcing definitively that Europe and the United States had a genuine trend on its hands. Taking the Beatles' 1968 journey as its point of departure, Nothing Is Real invokes this extraordinary moment through contemporary reports, archival photographs, album covers, books and magazines from the period, and artworks by Ettore Sottsass, Alighiero Boetti, Francesco Clemente, Luigi Ontani, Aldo Mondino and Julian Schnabel"--Publisher's description
Water, Islam and art : drop by drop, life falls from the sky( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There exists an age-old and intimate bond between water and the Islamic world. This relationship can be explained only in part by atmospheric conditions: an ancient legacy of previous cultures and civilizations, a deep sense of religion and many complex social and cultural themes. Water belongs to our most profound dreams: it evokes motherhood, cleanliness, purity, sensuality, and death. Naturally, this is true for every civilization, but in Islam this series of ideas found its most profound meaning, turning water into one of the cornerstones of human existence: a cornerstone that is both spiritual as well as social and aesthetic. Water was tamed with the qanat, became a ritual with the hammam, it was venerated as a heavenly gift and feared as a divine punishment. The statements in the Qur'an and subsequent literature illustrate the historic development of the many roles and meanings of water and the incarnation of its significance in Islamic art and craftsmanship. This volume tells a story through artifacts, books, and miniatures, but also through canalization systems in Syria, gardens in Spain and baths in Istanbul. In this story everyday life, art and technology intertwined offering the reader a new approach to the millenary Islamic culture"--Page 4 of cover

Acqua, Islam e arte : goccia a goccia dal cielo cade la vita( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tra l'acqua e il mondo islamico esiste un rapporto intimo e antico, che le ragioni climatiche possono spiegare solo in parte. Vi è infatti alla base un'eredità di tradizioni e civiltà, un senso religioso profondo, complesse ragioni sociali e culturali. L'acqua appartiene ai nostri sogni più profondi, evoca la maternità, la pulizia, la purezza, la sensualità, la nascita e la morte. E se questo vale naturalmente per ogni civiltà, nell'Islam tali idee hanno trovato un senso più profondo, facendo dell'acqua un fulcro tanto spirituale quanto sociale ed estetico. L'acqua è stata domata con i qanat, resa rito con i hammam, venerata come dono celeste e temuta come castigo divino. A partire dalle affermazioni del Corano e della letteratura successiva, il volume illustra lo sviluppo storico dei tanti ruoli e significati ricoperti dall'acqua e la sua rappresentazione nell'arte e nei manufatti islamici: non solo arredi, suppellettili, libri, miniature, ma anche le grandi opere di canalizzazione siriane, i giardini di Spagna e i bagni di Istanbul. Un racconto in cui si intrecciano vita quotidiana, arte e tecnologia, in grado di offrire al lettore un approccio originale alla millenaria cultura islamica
