Estratto: ... compare Luciano gli e morta la mula, e non ha denari da comprarne un'altra. Adesso se non comprava quell'asino di san Giuseppe, non sapeva che farne del suo carro e degli arnesi; e vedrete che quell'asino sara la sua ricchezza! L'asino imparo anche a tirare il carro, che era troppo alto di stanghe per lui, e gli pesava tutto sulle spalle, sicche non avrebbe durato nemmeno sei mesi, arrancando per le salite, che ci volevano le legnate di compare Luciano per mettergli un po'di fiato in corpo; e quando andava per la discesa era peggio, perche tutto il carico gli cascava addosso, e lo spingeva in modo che doveva far forza colla schiena in arco, e con quelle povere gambe rose dal fuoco, che la gente vedendolo si metteva a ridere, e quando cascava ci volevano tutti gli angeli del paradiso a farlo rialzare. Ma compare Luciano sapeva che gli portava tre quintali di roba meglio di un mulo, e il carico glielo pagavano a cinque tari il quintale.--Ogni giorno che campa l'asino di san Giuseppe son quindici tari guadagnati, diceva, e quanto a mangiare mi costa meno d'un mulo.--Alle volte la gente che saliva a piedi lemme lemme dietro il carro, vedendo quella povera bestia che puntava le zampe senza forza, e inarcava la schiena, col fiato spesso e l'occhio scoraggiato, suggeriva: --Metteteci un sasso sotto le ruote, e lasciategli ripigliar lena a quella povera bestia.--Ma compare Luciano rispondeva: --Se lo lascio fare, quindici tari al giorno non li guadagno. Col suo cuoio devo rifare il mio. Quando non ne potra piu del tutto lo vendero a quello del gesso, che la bestia e buona e fa per lui; e non e mica vero che gli asini di san..

Science In The Kitchen And The Art Of Eating Well

First published in 1891, Pellegrino Artusi?s La scienza in cucina e l?arte di mangier bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi?s death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print. Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil or lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor ? humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes. Artusi?s masterpiece is not merely a popular cookbook; it is a landmark work in Italian culture. This English edition (first published by Marsilio Publishers in 1997) features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa.

The vexed relationship between the two parts of Italy, often referred to as the Southern Question, has shaped that nation's political, social, and cultural life throughout the twentieth century. But how did southern Italy become "the south," a place and people seen as different from and inferior to the rest of the nation? Writing at the rich juncture of literature, history, and cultural theory, Nelson Moe explores how Italy's Mezzogiorno became both backward and picturesque, an alternately troubling and fascinating borderland between Europe and its others. This finely crafted book shows that the Southern Question is far from just an Italian issue, for its origins are deeply connected to the formation of European cultural identity between the mid-eighteenth and late nineteenth centuries. Moe examines an exciting range of unfamiliar texts and visual representations including travel writing, political discourse, literary texts, and etchings to illuminate the imaginative geography that shaped the divide between north and south. His narrative moves from a broad examination of the representation of the south in European culture to close readings of the literary works of Leopardi and Giovanni Verga. This groundbreaking investigation into the origins of the modern vision of the Mezzogiorno is made all the more urgent by the emergence of separatism in Italy in the 1990s.

As its title powerfully suggests, this bookwhile being a personal memoir, a narration of ones life journey from sunrise to sunsettranscends the personal. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that these memories are the memories of an immigrant who has lived in the country as a US citizen (with an American-born father) for some sixty years. It is much more than a list of events and anecdotes of an immigrant experience. It is written in a Dantesque and Vichian spirit, and as such, it goes beyond the listing of historical events and people. More than a physical journey, it is an intellectual journey into the mind of an immigrant in search of ones self and ones ethnic identity. As such, it is a universal journey with which nonimmigrants, even native-born, can easily emphatize. Our common humanity makes it universal. As Dante well put it when he began the narration of his lifes journey, In the middle of the journey of our lives, I found myself in a dark wood. As Dante begins the journey guided by Virgil and Breatrice, he finds out that indeed the journey is universal beyond the purely personal. As Michelangelo said, Ancor imparo [I am still learning]. He uttered such a statement at the venerable age of eighty-nine, a few days before he died. He was still sculpting and learning. Likewise, if we dare to begin the journey, at whatever age we may find ourselves, we may soon find out that we too are still learning, and the journey may well have a common purpose and destination.

Despite being a universal experience, eating occures with remarkable variety across time and place: not only do we not eat the same things, but the related technologies, rituals, and even the timing are in constant flux. This lively and innovative history paints a fresco of the Italian nation by looking at its storied relationship to food.
