Book Description: Umberto Allemandi, 2006. English Text. Torino, 2006; paperback, pp. 156, 70 col. ill., cm 12x16,5. The book illustrates the exceptional collections in the only museum in the world, apart from the one in Cairo, devoted exclusively to Egyptian art and culture. The famous phrase "the route to Memphis and Thebes passes by Turin" was written by Champollion when he came to Turin in 1824. Indeed, the collections in the Museum boast a long and illustrious history. The Mensa Isiaca, a Roman altar table for an Isis temple during the Diaspora, was the first object to reach Turin, in 1630. This masterpiece spurred King Carlo Emanuele III in 1753 to commission the professor of botany, Vitaliano Donati, to acquire objects from Egypt that might explain the significance of the table. The Museo Egizio was formally instituted in 1824, with the acquisition by King Carlo Felice of a large collection (more than 5,000 objects) belonging to Bernardino Drovetti; of Piedmontese origin, he served under Napoleone Bonaparte, going to Egypt where he became the French consul (formally to the Ottoman Sublime Porte). This guide presents seventy highlights from the collections: a restricted choice that chronologically covers the period fully. Royal and private funerary and votive monuments illustrate evolutions in style, many of the greater gods and have reached the Museum from both excavations and acquisitions. The text also gives information about techniques, commerce and major historical events. Bookseller Inventory # 1195850

Book Description: Umberto Allemandi, 2008. Torino, 2008; br., pp. 72, ill. b/n, cm 12x19,5. (Contemporary Architecture in Turin). Prosegue la pubblicazione dei saggi della collana "Architettura contemporanea a Torino" che ricostruisce la complessa topografia di luoghi, edifici, attori, culture tecniche e artistiche che a Torino si sono incrociati lungo tutto il Novecento. Entro lo spazio della città contemporanea sono ampiamente testimoniati e riconoscibili i luoghi nei quali si sono concretizzate le politiche che nel XX secolo hanno cercato di dare risposta a diffusi fabbisogni abitativi. Alloggi, edifici, spazi aperti, giardini, attrezzature collettive hanno composto quartieri e complessi residenziali che sono andati a formare una "città pubblica". Il libro riflette su questi spazi per analizzare il loro ruolo nella costruzione e nella riqualificazione della città. Un ritorno ai quartieri suggerito anche dal loro ruolo di "laboratorio di progettualità " nell'innovativa stagione di recupero urbano avviato a Torino già dagli anni novanta.

Colleyn, Jean-Paul
Bookseller: Libro Co. Italia Srl (San Casciano V.P., FI, Italy)
Bookseller Rating: 5-star rating
Quantity Available: 1

Book Description: Five Continents Editions, 2009. Book Condition: new. English text. Milano, 2009; paperback, pp. 137, 15 b/w ill., 64 col. ill., cm 28x32,5. (Visions of Africa). The aesthetic qualities of the works produced by the Bamana of Mali (also known as the Bambara) have long attracted the attention of the West. The artistic creation brings into play a network of complex values that are sometimes accessible only to the initiated, but which are always deeply rooted in a system of thought and a way of life that only anthropological research in the field can attempt to approach and study. To put the works in their local context, the book looks at the initiations of young people and at funerals: fundamental rites of passage which cannot be avoided. Outstanding among them is that of the Ntomo, the society of young boys who have not yet been circumcised, and the ones linked to the Kore and the Jo, societies overseeing the passage to adulthood. Then the functioning of the agricultural mutual aid groups (ton, démè) and the other great initiatory societies reserved for adults (Komo, Kono, Tyiwara, Namakoro, etc.) is analysed in its political, economic and judicial dimensions. Jean-Paul Colleyn anthropologist and documentary filmmaker. Head of studies at the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales. He has also taught at New York University. The author and director of thirty documentary films, several books and many articles on anthropological subjects in Mali (where he has been doing fieldwork since 1972) and on visual anthropology.
