Due amici programmano un viaggio in auto molto particolare, da Bari a Pechino passando da Vladivostok, e per renderlo ancora più speciale decidono di compierlo con una Fiat 500 del 1973. Un viaggio attraverso due continenti in totale autonomia, con pochi bagagli, un budget limitato e senza alcun supporto tecnico, su di un’auto vecchia di oltre trent’anni. Percorrendo sedicimila chilometri a una media di trenta all’ora, i protagonisti di La bizzarra impresa impiegheranno più di tre mesi per raggiungere la loro meta. Un viaggio in tutta lentezza che darà loro modo di guardarsi attorno e di parlare con la gente, cogliendo l’immagine di un mondo che sta rapidamente cambiando a seguito dei cataclismi politici che ne hanno modificato i confini e le certezze.

Fiat has built millions of vehicles since 1899 but the company is perhaps best known for its ability to produce small, economical, characterful cars. Great Small Fiats traces this concept from the birth of the 500A "Topolino" in the 1930s up to the current Panda and a hint of the proposed Nuova 500. Each of the selected models are described in detail from their conception through to current ownership in the hands of collectors and enthusiasts. The chapters include practical information on buying and running a small Fiat and restoration advice for the older cars. Also included are Fiats built under license outside of Italy and the Fiat-derived "etceterini" coachbuilt and competition cars.

Blart is not an average boy. He lives on a pig farm with his grandfather and doesn't care about being heroic or famous or legendary, but he does know that if you want to catch a pig you have to sneak up behind it and take it by surprise. So when a great wizard visits and explains that humankind depends on Blart joining his quest, Blart says no - until the wizard threatens his pigs. Reluctantly, Blart embarks on a very epic quest stuffed with brilliant characters: a feisty princess who likes dragons, a warrior who's a big softie at heart, a disaffected dwarf, and evil Zorab, trapped in a mountain, waiting for his minions to dig him out...

Painting in Sixteenth-Century Venice, here published in a revised and updated edition, explores the visual tradition of one of the most important centres of the Italian Renaissance through a study of three masters - Titian, Veronese, and Tintoretto. These painters dominated and shaped the traditions of Venetian painting in the High and Late Renaissance. Establishing the conditions of painting in Renaissance Venice, including the social, economic and political situation of arts and artists and the aesthetic values that distinguish Venetian painting from that of Central Italy, David Rosand also explores the formal principles and technical procedures that determined the uniqueness of painting in Venice, above all the development of oil painting on canvas. He also analyses individual images, altarpieces and mural paintings within the several contexts of conventions and institutions - artistic, social, historical - of Renaissance Venice.

This volume of The Annali is meant to collect among some the most significant outcomes of the research activities having characterised the “adventure of ideas” of Laboratorio Expo during the two-year period 2013-2015. The project ‘Laboratorio Expo’ has been conceived and structured in 2012. Its research programs had been presented in June 2013 and all activities launched in September of that year, thanks to an agreement between the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation and the company Expo Milano 2015 SpA. In the first part of the volume, Scientific research for a sustainable development, the outcomes of the research have been described and discussed, divided into the different subject areas of the complex and articulated activity carried out within the project ‘Laboratorio Expo’. The second part, Problems, ideas and proposals, is made up of a wide range of different contributions provided by distinguished researchers working in research and academic Institutions for the development of this project and the sharing of ideas. In the Appendix, we have included both an accurate report of the all activities carried out in the two-year period 2013-2015 and the Charter of Milan, the cultural legacy of Expo Milano 2015, that has been coordinated and drafted by Laboratorio Expo, under the supervision of the Italian Minister of Agriculture, Maurizio Martina and of the Italian government. Laboratorio Expo is based on a very simple idea: developping the research and the sharing of ideas within the international scientific community around the central theme of this 2015 Universal Exhibition held in Milan. Within the Laboratorio, the theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ has been developed and articulated through four main subject areas. And with these four areas of investigation, all based on the assessment and analysis of the many faces of sustainability and its intrinsic plural dimensions, Laboratorio Expo worked as a public space where reflections, content experiences, practices, and perspectives could be shared, all scientifically based on the Expo’s main theme.

Positing a dynamic relationship between print culture and social experience, Bronwen Wilson's The World in Venice focuses on the printed image during a century of profound transformation. City views, costume illustrations, events, and portraits of locals and foreigners are brought together to show how printmakers responded to an expanding image of the world in Renaissance Venice, and how, in turn, prints influenced the ways in which individuals thought about themselves. Woodcuts and engravings of cities and inhabitants of Europe, and those of distant lands, initiated a sudden and pervasive experience with alterity that redefined the relations of Europeans to the world. By condensing the world into pictures, print enabled a radically novel and vicarious experience of others. Wilson explores the overlapping and evolving relations between space, vision, print, and identity, and engages with current scholarly debates concerning ethnicities, gender and geography, copies and originals, travel, nationhood, fashion, urban life, visuality, and the body. Venice was one of the largest cities in Renaissance Europe, a trading crossroads, and a centre of print. The World in Venice shows how Venetian identity came to be envisioned within the growing global context that print constructed for it.
