Orlando Furioso, I Pupi Siciliani – Sicilian Marionettes.

I pupi toccano l’anima con fili invisibili, solleticando i nostri mondi nascosti con le loro storie d’arme e d’amor. Carlo Magno, Orlando, Rinaldo e Angelica, buoni e cattivi, eroi e vinti, cristiani e saraceni, mostri mitologici e figure magiche. Essi rappresentano la più riuscita sintesi storico-iconografica mai attuata, sono il risultato dell’intreccio fra tecniche artigianali altamente specializzate e racchiudono un enorme valore sociale e culturale. Il libro ricostruisce la storia e l’arte dell’Opera dei Pupi – riconosciuta dall’Unesco “Capolavoro del Patrimonio Orale e Immateriale dell’Umanità” –, delinea le personalità dei protagonisti e offre uno spaccato inedito su una delle massime espressioni dell’estro siciliano.

Bing Wallpaper Stravinsky Fountain in Paris, France by Alessandro Saffo

Though he was born near St. Petersburg, Russia, Stravinsky wrote and debuted many of his career-making works while living in France in the early 20th century. It was this day in 1913 that Stravinsky’s ballet ‘The Rite of Spring’ debuted at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
