    Gormenghast: Il Castello. Il Mondo di Mervyn Peake.Silvia Bellotti - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):183-200.
    Titus Groan and Gormenghast are the first two books of the trilogy written by mervyn Peake. they are set in the ancient and crumbling castle of Gormenghast, a place where time seems to have stopped and where nobody has ever left or come to. the first aim of this essay is the exploration of the representation of the castle of Gormenghast: since it has been defined as the typical gothic structure, it is considered how Gormenghast diverges from the traditional stereotypes (...)

    Sfida All ’Ultimo Parallelo: La Conquista Del Polo Sud Cento Anni Dopo‘.Paolo Bernat - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):17-28.
    100 years ago, antarctica was still mostly unknown and unexplored. the first landings on the antarctic coast took place in the early decades of the nineteenth century and were made by whalers and sealers. in the following years the first scientific expeditions began and european and uS expeditions started the geographical discovery and the mapping of the antarctic coasts. But it was only in the years 1911-1912 that two expeditions, very different but equally well prepared, arrived almost simultaneously at the (...)

    Introduzione. Scienza, Esplorazione Ed Eroismo: Robert Falcon Scott Al Polo Sud.Nicoletta Brazzelli - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):5-15.
    The centenary of scott’s arrival at the south pole in 1912 and of his tragic death during the return journey has been celebrated through exhibitions and conferences, while a general reassessment of scott’s figure has been provided by several scholars. in particular, the scientific role of the 1910-12 british antarctic expedition is now emphasized: Scott’s aim was not only to reach the pole but especially to collect data and geological specimens of a completely unknown continent. This introduction focuses on the (...)

    «Aliquid Novi»: Alcune Considerazioni Su Novità E Modernità Nell’Alberti Latino E Volgare.Anna Maria Cabrini - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):123-137.
    the paper begins by looking at the most recent edition of Alberti’s latin works, whose textual and literary acquisitions are taken as a starting point for further analyses of a key problem in Alberti’s writings: that is the question of originality, first of all in comparison to classical authors. the paper will focus on this crucial theme, through a close examination of paradigmatic introductions, from De commodis to Momus, and selected passages from vernacular works, particularly from Profugiorum ab erumna libri.

    In his Iphigenia at Aulis, Euripides places his characters on the stage of Euripus, a sea strait which – since ancient times – had had a strong symbolic value: it was crossed by opposing currents and so represented the place of change, also in the metaphorical sense of changes of mind. As J. Morwood remarked in A Note on the Euripus in Euripides’ Iphigenia at Aulis, in this tragedy Euripides appropriates this metaphorical interpretation and uses the geographical and mythical context (...)

    In this article, the author wishes to give an overview of the thought and work of Tzvetan Todorov, a Bulgarian philosopher who emigrated to France in 1963. Distinguished representative of the contemporary intellectual scene, his figure remains elusive, due to the multidisciplinary nature of his approach and the variety of themes he touchs. Former member of French structuralism, Todorov deviates gradually from the blueprint of structuralist thought to achieve a neo-humanism that finds echoes in contemporary French philosophy. This study intends (...)

    this paper uses the release of ealing Studios’ Scott of the Antarctic to initiate a reflection on how the then UK government was preparing to anticipate and prepare for growing geopolitical and scientific challenges to its polar sovereignty. two counter-claimants and one close ally refused to accept that the falkland islands dependencies were part of the British empire. While most investment and overall strategy was directed towards mapping and surveying, the colonial office did offer support to a filmic project focussing (...)

    the purpose of this paper is to point out the unsolved problem of the anapaestic monodies’ unsecure colometry in seneca’s tragedies as well as expose the so called sense-correspondence principle to help scholars propose a metrical subdivision of lines closer to the original one. in the first part of the paper iexplain the difficulties about colometry that concern the division of trimeters into dimeters and monometers. i then outline a brief status quaestionis about this matter and the attempts at solving (...)

    Why Do the British Still Remember Scott of the Antarctic?Max Jones - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):47-58.
    the announcement of the death of the British polar explorer captain robert scott on his return from the south Pole, which he had reached on 17 January 1912, caused a sensation in Britain and around the world. Although he lost the race to the south Pole to a norwegian party led by roald Amundsen, the recent centenary of scott’s last expedition aroused widespread interest not only in Britain but around the world. this paper examines why the British public continues to (...)

    at a ten-year mark, a verse written by Virgil looks like a long-expected answer to his friend Horace, who had in turn alluded to a Virgil’s poem in Epod. 16. during the hundred-year-old discussion about the relationships between eclogue 4 and epode 16, the stylistic element known as «motto» has seemed conclusive to determine the precedence of Virgil’s poem on Horace’s one. at different stages, alberto Cavarzere argued that Hor. Epod. 16.1 was an answer to Verg. Ecl. 4.4. in my (...)

    my paper deals with the analysis of the mythological short poem La Favola di Narcisso by Luigi alamanni, focusing on the rewriting of the episode of narcissus in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. this study takes into account the particular literary devices through which the author aims to reproduce and reinforce the rhetorical richness of the Latin example, such as the amplificatio, the modification of dispositio and the respect of decorum. Furthermore, the intertextual relationships between the Favola and the most important vernacular and (...)

    Antarctica is certainly made an «awful» place by its harsh climate: in the past, explorers and researchers endured terrible hardships and the climate remains a challenge today, in spite of the many improvements in knowledge and technology. Antarctica may be termed “the continent of the extremes”, as it occupies an area unlike any other on earth. it is the farthest and most inaccessible and isolated continent; the most regular because of its rounded shape, with the South pole at the centre; (...)

    «Raccontare È Monotono»: Il Ritmo Della Prosa in Feria D’Agosto di Cesare Pavese.Matteo Zoppi - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (3):201-220.
    starting with the twenty-five short stories which constitute August Holiday, the paper attempts to analyse the rhythmic and prosodic structures in pavese’s prose works: the study initially tries to show the main metric structures subtended by each text. the prosodic examination also shows a clear formal division between the first parts of the work and the third one: the number of anapaestic structures increases remarkably from the first to the last section. this stylistic evolution can be explained through a passage (...)

    What typifies the dialectic structure of Hegelian subjectivity, meant as an internal purposive process of circular self-closure and self-determination, is the position that is therein occupied by the alterity of the other. in the first section of the article, drawing from some pages of The Phenomenology of the Spirit and from some paragraphs in Hegel’s 1830 Encyclopedia logic, the following question arises: “What becomes” of the other’s alterity in the dialectic thought of subjectivity and in the logical structuring of the (...)

    This paper presents a linguistic analysis of Homeric adjective ἐννύχιος, in order to find a solution to two contradictions noticed in the passage Φ 34-39. In these verses, Homer describes, in a flashback, Achilles coming forth ἐννύχιος and kidnapping Lycaon, Priam’s son, who is cutting wild fig branches – action quite dangerous to perform in the night time. In Φ 74-79 Lycaon, who is caught by Achilles for the second time, appeals to his humanity begging not to kill him in (...)

This Apulian vase-painter was a pupil of the Baltimore Painter, whose workshop may possibly have been located at Ruvo or Canosa; in fact there is a close connexion between the works of the two painters.

    the study of the first section of a lberto Vigevani’s literary works reveals his tendency to be part of the most exclusive culture and the most distinguished literature. His first narrative oeuvres formally show his disposition to approach the Florentine literary manner, preferring its lyrical tone and stylistic preciousness. Vigevani’s work depends on that same literary model also in terms of content; however, the essentially autobiographical nature of the narration and of the choice of the narrative units, brightened by the (...)

Sometimes he is overwhelmed by the enormous variety and the incredible bulk of the material he has collected and (...)

    the so-called cultural landscape, obtained by crossing objective and subjective variables, occupies a more and more considerable area in the complex and articulate debate on the meaning of the concept of landscape. it follows that many natural, anthropic and metaphysical factors must be taken into account and trans and meta- disciplinary methods of analysis should be used to conduct an extensive review of such an issue. hence the usefulness of analysing the role of landscape by extending the scope of investigation (...)

    Tempo di uccidere is the only long-form writing in Ennio Flaiano’s literary production; it’s also an exception in the Italian literary post-war panorama, because of its theme, its setting and its expressive schemes. A deep anti-rhetorical charge inspires the narration: the choice of the novel form is a kind of challenge to the Neorealistic writers and theorists, who supported the knowledge potential of the novel. The enquiry tools of the psychoanalytical literary theory allows to read the crisis represented in Tempo (...)

    The article goes through the critical analysis of the rawlsian concept of original position, expressed by Habermas in 1995. Habermasian remarks on the original position aim to undermine the justifiability of such a concept as fundamental to the whole political theory. In fact, it is supposed to substitute the procedures of democratic deliberation with a well thought-out construction belonging uniquely to the theoretician. According to Habermas, substantive outcomes of procedures must be left out from political theory, whose task is to (...)

    in Gentile’s opinion, all of philosophical history is a clear example of the attempt to reconcile being and thought; the author thinks that actualism tries to overcome the difficulties discussed by Kant, fichte, schelling and Hegel, by tracing the outline of a philosophy which, starting from a “hard unity”, is able to explain finitude and its becoming. from a methodological point of view, art represents the first moment in the act of thought; it should explain how the finitude itself can (...)

    the article is divided into two parts. the first one analyses the sixth poem by Paulinus of nola through the intertextual comparison with the fourth Eglogue by Virgil. the observed connection should not be considered among the christian interpretations of Ecl. 4, even if the references to it do not seem simple accidental confluences, but clear allusions: Paulinus, although conscious of them, seemingly uses Virgil only as a literary model. the second part confirms this hypothesis through a comparison between Paulinus’ (...)

    The first detective stories are written in scandinavia in the XIX century and in the same moment the most famous english and american authors – such as edgar allan Poe and agatha christie – are translated into the scandinavian languages: the english-speaking countries represent a model and a source of inspiration for the local writers. From the very beginning, the most peculiar feature of the detective narrative in sweden, denmark and norway is the interest in social matters: the authors use (...)

    Si Igitur Secreta Evulgentur, Cum Communia Fiunt, Decorem Et Nobilitatem Amittunt. Il De Secretis di Girolamo Cardano.Davide Giavina - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):207-232.
    this article examines the path that leads girolamo cardano to write and publish the De secretis and it discusses some philosophical issues that emerge in this work, such as the nature of the wise-man and the question of demons. this historical analysis allows to consider the book related to the alchemy and natural philosophy of the renaissance. especially, this article regards as decisive the existence of a dialectical relationship between cardano and conrad gesner : in the Thesaurus Euonymi Philiatrii the (...)

    Ricordi di Un Paese Scomparso. Il Wenderoman Fra Genere Letterario E Testimonianza Culturale.Alessandra Goggio - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):355-369.
    This essay constitutes an attempt to define the so-called Wenderoman, that’s to say that particular kind of novel that deals with the fall of the Berlin wall and the German reunification, as a literary genre. First of all it will be seen how it is possible to consider it as a genre mainly because of its pragmatic value. Furthermore, its primary characteristics, such as its role in the history writing process, its autobiographical inclination and its cultural value as a part (...)

    Lorenzo Valla E Gli Scolii a Tucidide. Scolii E Glosse Dal Parisinus Suppl. Gr. 256.Vera Grossi - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):157-178.
    The article is concerned with the relation between Lorenzo Valla’s Latin translation of Thucydides and the Thucydidean scholiastic corpus. We know from g.B. alberti’s studies that the text of Valla’s version is based on two lost greek manuscripts, called ξ and ρ. in 1985 alberti also suggested that Valla had used scholia transmitted by the recentiores X and Pl. in the present work i examine book i of the Historiae in order to provide arguments for his hypothesis. in the first (...)

    Per la Storia di Laumellum E Della Sua Chiesa di Santa Maria Maggiore.Lorenzo Iazzolino - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):327-335.
    The significant role of Lomello in the vast northwestern Po plain as a fruitful laboratory of various artistic influences and styles is documented by a few monuments of the early Christian age, first and foremost the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Built on the classical early Christian pattern, it suffered the heavy consequences of wars and invasions throughout the Middle Ages. Moreover, in 1117, a tremendous earthquake caused the collapse of its front part. Santa Maria Maggiore is nowadays considered a (...)

    Un Ritratto di Maria Pavlovna Romanova Alla Fondazione Magnani Rocca.Alessandro Malinverni - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):337-353.
    the present paper focuses on a full-length oil-on-canvas portrait attributed to george dawe and now kept at the Magnani rocca Foundation. the sitter of that portrait has been hitherto identified with Marie louise of austria, and the painting accordingly dated to 1818-19, despite the lack both of documentary evidence and of any resemblance whatsoever with the most often reproduced features of the empress of France, then duchess of Parma, Piacenza and guastalla. a close comparison with a 1822 oil-on-canvas portrait of (...)

    Plus Est, Quam Quod Videatur, Imago: L’Arte di Morfeo.Gida Porchera - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):27-51.
    among the metapoetic characters of ovid’s Metamorphoses there is morpheus, a daemon from Book X i, son of Hypnos and co-protagonist of the Ceyx alcyone episode. the first and the second section of the article intend to show that his metamorphic capabilities, introduced by the poet at 633-649 and applied by the dream at 650-673, are strictly related to ovid’s poetical technique: as a matter of fact, the enargeia of morpheus’ transformations conjures up the author’s visual language and the aims (...)

    Da Levante a Occidente: Considerazioni Su Un Contesto Funerario Pithecusano.Simone N. Porta - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):3-26.
    the tomb 545-546 from the necropolis of san Montano in ischia seems to give us information about the reconstruction of the civilization of the island since its early inhabitation. the grave, with the two depositions, attributed to a mother and her baby, gives us an articulate funerary equipment. the variety of imported goods found are a possible key to the reading of the whole funerary context. two important topics have to be considered: on one hand, the presence of egyptian jewels, (...)

    Sequenze Penitenziali Negli Amorum Libri di Boiardo.Alessandra Rozzoni - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):179-205.
    My paper focuses on the study of penitential elements in Boiardo’s Amorum Libri, one of the less studied and appreciated aspects of the collection. In particular my research analyzes the formal and regulating aspects of the two sequences and their relationship with the macrotext. The results show the deep unity and cohesion of the penitential texts although they are divided in two different series. These series are characterized by an evident autonomy as to the rest of the collection in regard (...)

    Paolo D’Ancona, Un’Edizione Della Vita Del Cellini E la Divulgazione.Rossana Sacchi - 2012 - Annali Della Facoltà di Lettere E Filosofia 65 (1):233-267.
    Paolo D’ancona was among the first university Professors of art History in italy. He taught at the università degli Studi in Milan from 1908 to 1954 and while there he formed a large number of pupils. today his activity as a teacher and divulgator has to be regarded as more important than his scholarly one: starting in the mid-1920s D’ancona, who until then had focused mainly on the History of illumination, devoted himself especially to the divulgation of art History, constantly (...)
