Encyclopaedic lighting

Who is Denis Diderot?

Denis Diderot, French philosopher and writer, was born on 5 March 1713 in Langres, a provincial town to a wealthy bourgeois family. After studying at the Jesuit College in the city, he moved to Paris to study at the University, where he graduated brilliantly in 1732.
After his studies the young Denis promises a future full of uncertainty and bitterness, devoid as it is of any support and by any professional experience.
Fits for many different jobs, although fortunately all more or less fall within its remit: public scribe, tutor, translator.
Like many other young moneyed little of his age, he attended the salons and cafes where enlightenment ideas circulate and libertine. And it is precisely here that knows Jean Jacques Rousseau, "hot head" aimed at influencing European culture so deeply.
The two are now agree: the agreement is deep on many aspects of life and ideas, but it is now historically established that their friendship was not easy, mainly because of the restless nature of both. Meanwhile, Diderot, always intent on studying various languages, both modern and ancient, is being done as a translator. In this way learns of important texts affecting his way of thinking. One of these is the "essay on the virtue and merit" of Shaftesbury, which enhances its contents for praising freedom and openness toward other cultures.
Under the tumultuous urgency of his soul and ideas surrounding it therefore feels the need to speak in the first person in the cultural debate and throws herself headlong into the drafting of the famous "philosophical thoughts" of 1746, exquisitely enlightenment brand, especially in matters of religion, where emphasizes the idea of a God suprasensible and away from patterns of revealed religions. The Prime hospitality also extends the essays "the sufficiency of natural religion" and "La passeggiata dello scettico", harshly critical of the superstition and intolerance.
Dates back to 1748 libertine novel "indiscreet jewels" and the "letter 1749 on the blind for the use of those who see" sensista and materialistic pitch.
Imprisoned in Vincennes because of these writings, considered subversive, Diderot spent five months in a POW camp didn't particularly harsh and oppressive.
Meanwhile began the great adventure of the Encyclopédie, which will tirelessly for the next fifteen years: this work Diderot will be the most tireless creator, seeing in it an indispensable cultural and political battle and, after the defection of d'Alembert in 1759, supporting almost alone.
Vice versa will not generally public circulation to their writings, many of which remain so completely unknown outside the small circle of philosophes, published only after many decades after his death (some even after the second world war).
Belong to this period (the publication of the encyclopedia will end permanently only in 1773) other important works such as "the interpretation of nature" or "d'Alembert's dream", as well as the novels such as "the nun", "James the fatalist" dialogue "Rameau's nephew".
Diderot has experimented with theatre, where he gave evidence of rare ability: just think of the piece as "the son" or "the family man".
On the private plane of life philosopher-writer is also characterized by the idea of freedom. Despite being married since 1743 with corniciaia Antoinette Champion (which will give him a much-loved daughter), will not miss a lover, Sophie Volland, known in 1756 and bears beautiful letters. Their correspondence is still considered of great value, literary and biographical history.
Diderot in 1773 he went to Petersburg where stretches the Empress Catherine II reform projects and education society. Perhaps because of the huge blow for Sophie's death, which occurred on 22 June 1784, on 31 July of the same year the philosopher died in Paris.

Biography of Ciccio Ingrassia

Beloved mask

April 28, 2003

Who is Ibu?

Along with Franco Franchi, Ciccio Ingrassia mask has created for decades in one of the most popular Italian comic couples. The two, inseparable in film and television, gave forty year career, beginning in the curtain-raiser to the Auteur cinema awards.
Francesco Ingrassia, Sicilian verace, born in Palermo on October 5, 1922-many biographies mention the 1923 but it is a misprint of the registry that the comedian has never bothered to correct-was the most genuine product of street theatre and the dramatic capacity of artists of the era, born in poor conditions typical of the southern economy, to "adapt" to survive their desire to perform and express their talent. The meeting with Franco Franchi (born Francesco Benenato), is random but the two quickly realize that you have an almost perfect agreement (at least on the scene), and know how to integrate beautifully: the one in the classic role of the shoulder, the other as errand boy unleashed. Of the two was that serious and Ciccio severo, while Franks was the "marionette" buffa and disjointed.
For most popular strata known simply as "Franco e Ciccio", they begin to work together on stage in vaudeville in the postwar period, but need to Domenico Modugno's first big chance. He in addition to choose them for the demanding "Rinaldo", musical comedy by Garinei and Giovannini, signal the duo Mario Mattoli, which in 1960 was filming "Appuntamento a Ischia". For the Sicilian couple it was only a brief appearance, but it would have been the beginning of a long association with the big screen.
Well 150 at the end of their career, the sums will be titles that include them. Often exploiting the trend of film parodies or successful. Among these titles there are memorable as "ugly", "Seduced and cheated", "the two sons of Ringo", "the two firemen", "two gentlemen", "Zorro" grandchildren, "Farfallon", "last tango in Zagarolo," "guess who's coming to snack?", "The good the bad and stupid" and so on. Everyone can have fun finding the right associations with its original title.
But their film career is not made only of farces and parodies, there is also place for collaborations. And with names that would make my skin crawl far more actors listed for their resonant echo: from "Two marines e un generale" with Buster Keaton, in "Capriccio all'italiana", where Pier Paolo Pasolini wanted them next to Totò in 1968, until "the last judgment" by Vittorio De Sica.
Ingrassia, in particular, won a Nastro d'Argento as best supporting actor for "Todo Modo" by Elio Petri and, while continuing with his career success with Franco Franchi, filmed two movies to her name. He directed the same Franks in his directorial debut, "cold", and in 1975 moved back behind the camera for a film that is more in line with their tradition as "l'esorciccio", in which inter alia offered Lino Banfi his first starring role.
In 1971 the Franks and the Ibu Gatto e la Volpe in Bellissimo "Pinocchio" by Luigi Comencini, television with Nino Manfredi and Gina Lollobrigida.
Meanwhile television multiplied torque popularity thanks to sketch created by "Partitissima", "number one" Cantatutto, editions "Canzonissima", "shrimp", then "yesterday and today", "That", "combination" Drim, etc.
The television is also linked to reconciliation, after one of the many quarrels, which with some fanfare took place live on an episode of Sunday, with Pippo Baudo.
A little snubbed, in 1984 only critics began to watch Franco and Ciccio with other eyes, mainly thanks to the Taviani brothers who chose them for "Kaos" (in which played the Pirandello novel "La giara") and Fellini, who immortalized Ciccio Ingrassia in "Amarcord" in the poetic interpretation of a crazy country.
More recently some niche tv broadcasts as a Blob and Cynical tv, have embarked on a "rehabilitation" similar to the one that made the triumph's memory. Such rehabilitation has resulted in a docu-film, reminiscent of their careers, made by those two "saboteurs" of the local film scene that match the name of Ciprì and Maresco, already Cynical "inventors" tv (the movie is titled "Come inguaiammo il cinema Italian-La vera storia di Franco e Ciccio").
In 1986 Ibu had embarked on a career of considerable thickness, but touched on the fate of assist, in 1992, the disappearance of the beloved companion of art, to which he reserved words moved in various statements. It is then touched him reach the friend in the year of our Lord 2003, at the age of 80 years. Hospitalized for respiratory problems, died in Rome on April 28 surrounded by loved ones.

In Italy came in 2008 with its 2.0 version, faster, equipped with gps, and cheaper still: the stated goal is to "be anywhere", thus replicating the success of the iPod. With the spread of applications made available on the online platform called AppStore, and the introduction of "4", the iPhone does not cease to grind one record.
Steve Jobs had been struck in 2004 from a rare but treatable form of pancreatic cancer, from which he had recovered. Signs of a new disease occur after four years, so in early 2009 leaves his powers of ceo Tim Cook, Apple's Chief Executive.
Back to work and mob the stage again in June 2009, when its entire iPod range renewal. Appears in better condition than the last time it was shown to the audience and thanked the boy for two decades, died in a car accident, which gave him the liver, inviting everyone to become donors.

Biography of Alberto Sughi

Loneliness and ideology
October 5, 1928
March 31, 2012

Who is Alberto Sughi?

Alberto Sughi was born in Cesena on October 5, 19From classical studies; artistically he self-taught training: the rudiments by his uncle the painter and paint with passion.
He himself says: "my meeting with the art was without doubt favoured by the presence of an uncle painter and passion of my mother who, wisely, has stimulated my inclination for drawing. I can therefore agree to have followed a route that family has been suggested; I began drawing at the age of six years and I never stopped. "
Paintings of the early 40 's, although not devoid of interest, are only a preview of how the artist creates from the Decade. Widely master of his pictorial language, he painted with glossy objectivity, mixed with bits of formal surrender, expressionistic works inspired by the underground life.
He reveals to the public in a group show held in 1946 in his city. In the same year stays briefly in Turin (he works as an illustrator for the Gazzetta del Popolo).
Alberto Sughi visit in the 1948 Venice Biennale and remains strongly impressed by a still life of Fougeron. In 1954 he writes: "we talked about passionately. There escaped that purported to watch Fougeron vehemently in the face of reality. "
In 1948 he moved to Rome Sauces where he remained until 19There he meets several artists including Samuel Mamo and Renzo Vespignani that are part of the "Portonaccio". This meeting will be crucial from the point of view that art.
Return to Cesena in 19The subsequent period (until 1956) marks the transition from a "social realism" to one "existential".
To some criticism that his painting of consider those years and those immediately following as distressing Alberto Sughi responds: "since the first held in Rome, personal negli anni ' 50, made a curious discovery: seemed de rigueur, about my job, about loneliness and sadness; Suffice it to recall some newspaper article ... But I have never used a gray color to look sadder or more pink to allude to hope. When you paint, the mind and the hand are proceeding with determination and firmness. The purpose of painting is to not move, but rather to represent ".
In those years he continues to speak of sauces soppratttuo within the context of realism like for example is Antonello Trombadori combines that of Alberto Sughi to Edward Hopper.
And in 1963 with the theme of realism that social painting emerges as stated in the introduction that Giorgio Bassani makes a collective exhibition at the Galleria Gian Ferrari of Milan where, in addition to gravies, were Bankers, Ferroni Giannini and Luporini:
"All together to say no to 20th century Italian painting between the wars: in its lyricism, its purity, its emblematic example: focusing on content, in contrast to the values scorned them yesterday so the ' story ', ' drawing. It is therefore a social painting them? Even. However, it is a painting that asks the emotional and psychological ownership of the bystander, and not, like those of Morandi, Carrà, Rosai and the pure aesthetic review: not necessarily a bit theatrical, so, in the search of the effects, tricks, illusivi apparitions of twists ... And finally: Sauces came on to painting in Rome between Vespignani and Mamo, and raised in Romagna, then in his native Cesena. He too, like the others, was opposed from the beginning of his career at 20th century poetic sublime: and remember, ten years ago, knee-deep in the crime of post-war neorealism. Later he heard evidently need to decant their content, to make nice and big. And here he is, in fact, in these his last paintings, back to the sources of your truest realism: Degas, Lautrec: classically mature by now, to welcome to its lesson even Bacon, dark Nordic sorcerer ... ".
AGL ' early ' 70 Alberto Sughi leaves the studio in the Rocca Malatestiana di Cesena, and moved to the country home of Cano, in the green hills of Romagna.
It was during this period that he began to work at the important dinner cycle. This is an obvious metaphor of bourgeois society in which we find some ' realism ' to German Grosz and Dix, wrapped in an almost metaphysical atmosphere that isolates each character freezing it within the scene. It just seems to be a "last supper" as written by g. Amendola, a fictional middle class leave Italy's economic miracle.
These were the years in which participates actively in Sauces (but perhaps for the last time), and it does so as a Councillor, in political life.
The new works are exhibited for the first time in 1976 at the Gallery liked me in Florence and will be published in a volume of publishers Gathered with an introduction by g. Amendola and texts with the same Sauces and Raimondi.
Ettore Scola chooses as his movie poster "La terrazza" with one of the paintings and Mario Monicelli inspired atmosphere and the colors of sauces for "Un borghese piccolo piccolo", as he reveals in an interview with Gian Luigi Rondi "On time" (December 1976): "With Parker, the Director of photography, we have moved on Alberto Sughi. And Edward Munch. A very gray Rome loses, with lights that are loosing its balance, with less and less visible boundaries ... ". In 1978 dinner is presented in Moscow at Manezhnaya Gallery.
In 1980 working Sauces to another important narrative cycle "imagination and memory of the family".
With the large triptych "theatre of Italy", painted between 1983 and 1984 the eye of sauces will stop again on society. Theatre of Italy is a great social allegory that as the same artist "... or, if you want to, lists the characters in our ' comedy ', goes no further; but through the suggestion of form mirrors, each one as you thought, on one State of things, of our time, of our existence ".
In February 1993 the Council President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, appointing Alberto Sughi President of Ente Autonomo Esposizione Nazionale Rome Quadriennale. But in January the following year, not recognizing the opportunity to work fruitfully and listening to all that's deep inside his spirit tends to rebel and anarchist who sighted the first Valentino Martinelli, Sughi resigns from Office.
In 1996 he painted "clues and fragments" twenty works with which he Sauces "reconnects to the places of solitude urban" to use the words of Antonio Del Guercio, or if you want to "public solitude" as it is called Giorgio Soavi. The "fragments" of clues and 1996 is for some an anticipation of "night" the last of which painted Sauces cycles in 900.
As far as the subject of paintings of Sauces seem to change and be changed continuously, do not change instead the interest and deepest motivations that tie Alberto Sughi painting and that it reiterated once more in a 2003 interview by Luigi Vaccari to Vittorio Sgarbi and Alberto Sughi entitled on the destiny of painting: "I am interested in measuring my painting with certain characters , atmospheres and environments. When I paint I'm not sending messages and don't give reviews. The painting shows, not argued. When I paint, I don't think creating a masterpiece: a painting job that fix and resume and I change, following a path that has no reference with a practical reason. It is this absolute lack which makes me realize a painting which can also reflect the Viewer. And I am convinced that the painter's work does not end with its framework: end up in the eye of the Viewer. If there was a chance to reinvent it, to make for ourselves that experience is on the canvas, then Yes, the painting dies ".
In 2000 he received the premio Michelangelo Sauces, painting, Rome.
The interest for sauces and his work has always been and remains today, alive and high not only in Italy but also abroad and overseas. Sughi has participated in all the major exhibitions that brought abroad the story of Italian art.
Recently (October 2004) the Australian website, dedicates the space reserved for the artist of the month; While his painting "the thirst" cover story at number 54, 2004/5, the magazine of American poetry magazine published biennial Westbranch from Bucknell University in Pensilvanya.
In May 2005 has devoted an entire page to the artist entitled "ideology and solitude" and Alberto Sughi writes for la grande art directory of Columbus, Ohio, on his blog/journal, network, mainly focusing on the monthly theme and artist society.
On November 28 of the same year the President of the Republic Carlo Azeglio Ciampi handed Alberto Sughi's prestigious De Sica, bound to prominent personalities in the arts, culture and science.
He died in Bologna on March 31, 2012 at the age of 83 years.
