This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. This volume is an exploration of the innovative ways in which three generations of women writers in modern Italy have dealt with history - both as narration of events and the events themselves. The essays challenge traditional historiography and foster a rereading of history based on the tenets of feminist historicism. They also claim a central role for fiction in the construction of women's history and in a rereading of Italian history.

Cockram PDF/Ebook Free clicking on the below button will initiate the downloading process of Isabella d'Este and Francesco Gonzaga by Sarah D.P. Cockram. This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. In the first book systematically to give evidence of conjugal co-rule at an Italian Renaissance court, and the first full length scholarly study of Isabella d'Este and Francesco Gonzaga, Sarah Cockram shows their relationship in an entirely new light. The book draws on (and presents) a large amount of unpublished archival material, including almost unprecedented surviving correspondence between and around these Renaissance princely rulers. Using these sources, Cockram shows Isabella and Francesco's strategic teamwork in action, illuminating tactics of collaboration and dissimulation. She also reveals behind-the-scenes diplomatic activity; court procedures; sexual politics and seduction; gift-giving and network-building; rivalries, intrigues and assassinations. Several epistolary themes emerge: insights into the couple's communication practices and double-dealing, their use of intermediaries, and attention to security matters. This book's analysis of Isabella's co-rule with her husband, supported by other members of the Gonzaga dynasty, sees her sometimes in the role of subordinate partner, sometimes guiding the couple's actions. It shows how, despite appearances at times, the couple shared common diplomatic policy as well as human, material, and cultural resources; joint administration; and the exercise of authority and justice. Thus emerges a three-dimensional picture of the mechanisms of power and power sharing in the age of Machiavelli.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. Isabella d’Este (Ferrara 1474 – Mantua 1539) was already defined in her lifetime as “The first lady of the world”, and emains today one of the most brilliant characters of the Italian Renaissance. The first-born daughter of Duke Ercole of Ferrara and Eleonora of Aragon, at only six years of age was betrothed to Francesco II Gonzaga, heir of the Lords of Mantua. At sixteen, when she arrived in Mantua, she created one of the most culturally refined courts of the Renaissance. Driven by her insatiable desire for all things of antiquity, she collected in her Studiolo a precious assortment of classical artifacts. Fully aware of her extraordinary virtues, both physical and intellectual, she trusted the most illustrious artist of her time to represent her, and was portrayed by both Leonardo da Vinci and Titian – a privilege ot bestowed upon any king, Pope, or Emperor. A demanding and discerning patron, she entrusted Andrea Mantegna, Lorenzo Costa, Pietro Perugino and Correggio to create a cycle of paintings forher Studiolo. As a refined trend-setter, she formed the fashion of her time according to her own tastes, and became a point of reference not only for all of the Italian courts, but also for aristocrats throughout Europe. From her astrological chart and emblems to her portraits and the canvases created specifically for her Studiolo, this book contains several clear and original perspectives that highlight and better define the profile of Isabella. Here we have a new view of a Renaissance woman.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. This volume offers the first comprehensive survey of regime change in Italy in the period c.1494–c.1559. Far from being a purely modern phenomenon, regime change was a common feature of life in Renaissance Italy – no more so than during the Italian Wars (1494–1559). During those turbulent years, governments rose and fell with dizzying regularity. Some changes of regime were peaceful; others were more violent. But whenever a new reggimento took power, old social tensions were laid bare and new challenges emerged – any of which could easily threaten its survival. This provoked a variety of responses, both from newly established regimes and from their opponents. Constitutional reforms were proposed and enacted; civic rituals were developed; works of art were commissioned; literary works were penned; and occasionally, aspects of material culture were pressed into service, as well. Comparative in approach and broad in scope, it offers a provocative new view of the diverse political, culture, and economic factors, which ensured the survival (or demise) of regimes – not only in "major" polities like Florence, Rome, and Venice, but also in less-well-studied regions like Savoy. This book will appeal to researchers and students alike interested in cultural, political, and military history.

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. "In the second half of the twentieth century, the Italian historical novel provided an unrivalled number of best sellers and publishing 'phenomena'. The success of the genre is closely related to a more general interest in revisiting the past in the light of a changed understanding of the nature, or philosophy, of history. This study aims to explore the particularly marked increase in the production and popularity of the historical novel in the period between the mid-1960s and the early 1990s, with reference to current debates on the nature of history. It presents a theoretical framework which establishes the centrality of philosophy of history to the development of the genre. The employment of this framework opens out the discussion of literary change to the consideration of historiographical developments and wider critical debate. The theoretical insights gained inform the close textual analysis provided in the chapters dealing with novels written by five of Italy's foremost contemporary writers: Leonardo Sciascia, Vincenzo Consolo, Sebastiano Vassalli, Umberto Eco, and Luigi Malerba."

This book is available in ePub and PDF format with a single click unlimited downloads. ABOUT THE BOOK MY VENICE "An intimate look at the Myth, History and the magic of its Arts" "...I liked the way the city had attracted my attention. But, in order to discover it, I asked it to stop hiding behind its masks. I wanted it real. To allow me to discover its secrets, understand its problems and hold a direct conversation with it. And it was promised to me, and all disguises were thrown off as our conversation began..." A trip through time, myth, History, the magic of Art and life is what Barbara Athanassiadis manages to achieve with the discerning eye of an experienced traveller. It is the same eye that captured reflections of Italy in her earlier narratives, the books A Year in Tuscany and Feeling Rome. My Venice is the final book left to complete her unique literary trilogy that approaches time, place and people, both in the past and in the present. Without directing our steps, the author transports us through the canals, the narrow streets and the squares of Venice, and she focuses our attention on works of Nature and Art, drawing on legends and historical omissions. The “Winged Lion” leisurely embraces the shoulders of our romantic heroine, and the “Seagull’s Flight” even reaches the “Empress Sissy in Venice”. The “Tiny Murano Spheres” roll down and stop before “The Fork of the Byzantine Princess”, “Torcello” flirts with the “Venetian Women in the Harem”… The eBook is illustrated with colourful photos. Watch the YouTube book trailer video My VENICE: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrbC-aJ-0WKv8tN0RuB2YvMtqV_lg7N9X BOOK REVIEWS "Barbara must have been very much in love with Venice, because I know that for many years she has desired to write this book. She visited the city many times in the fall and stayed for long periods in order to internalize all that she describes expertly afterwards, providing the reader with her interesting reflections on the streets, the innumerable bridges and the countless churches, but also a wonderful lesson in History and an eye-catching look at its mysterious and sensual Art. We all know what Venice is for “art lovers”. Reading her book, it is obvious that she had an exclusive dialogue with the Serenissima, in order for its magic to penetrate inside her and then to be able to narrate her intimate relationship within this dreamy city. I particularly liked the point when she asked Venice not to hide behind its masks, but to throw aside its touristic veils and be revealed to her without any secrets." Lydia Mastronikolis, President of the Friends of the Cultural Association "Hellenic World" "Attentive to the Venetian glances of Barbara Athanassiadis’ book, I realized an emotional escalation, as the author is quite literal with her title: MY VENICE. This is indeed her own Venice, with the meaning not so much of her subjective glance or the focus on what selectively charms her, but in the particular way she sees things, looking towards the view of many sights, and not really seeing them. She wanders amongst her favorite places and drags my gaze to colors and sensations without guiding it . Just as charmingly, she approximates aspects of everyday life in her extra-literary life, calmly, with a nonchalance and always with a smile. Just as spontaneously, and naturally, she unfolds the myth in which she dresses her wanderings. Motives, thoughts, quests, reactions of her heroes, occur nearly as obviously... By reading her book, we follow the confessional narration of a friend, where the intimacy of her voice is entrusted to our ears." Helen Kritika , Book Critic "Through the narration of Barbara Athanassiadis, I discovered in fact that Venice is inside her, hence the title: MY VENICE. While our friendship has bonded us for years, I was truly touched by her book. It's as if she has taken me by the hand and together we stroll this fairytale town; either when the fog envelops it , or when the pink color of its sunset embraces it. Barbara's spontaneous and mature descriptions have spurred my curiosity to such an extent that I feel a strong desire to actually go to Venice and see the places that have inspired her. I consider myself lucky when I fall upon such a book. The narrative makes me travel and look at places I have heard about countless times in a fresh and novel way ... all while I sit comfortably in my armchair." Zoe Kyriakou, Radio Producer, “Easy 97,2”. Athens, Greece
