Frank Capra (1897-1991) è uno dei grandi maestro del cinema del Novecento e ha celebrato come nessun altro sul grande schermo l’american way of life degli anni Trenta e Quaranta, con capolavori quali È arrivata la felicità (1936), Arsenico e vecchi merletti (1944), La vita è meravigliosa (1946) e Angeli con la pistola (1961). Figlio di contadini siciliani, passa dalla laurea in ingegneria alla macchina da presa, ottenendo nel 1934 la consacrazione vera e propria con Accadde una notte, primo film in assoluto a conquistare i cinque Oscar più importanti (miglior film, miglior regia, miglior sceneggiatura, migliore attore protagonista e miglior attrice protagonista).In questo libro – un’autobiografia avvincente come un romanzo – Capra ripercorre la propria vita, dai duri sacrifici per farsi un’istruzione al trionfo che gli garantì un privilegio fino ad allora riservato solo alle grandi star di Hollywood: fu il primo regista a poter vantare in apertura dei suoi film «il nome sopra il titolo». Con un’introduzione di Fabio Stassi e una nota di John Ford.

A Quest for Life is the autobiography of a man who stands alongside Rachel Carson, Lewis Mumford, and Aldo Leopold as one of the giants of the environmental movement. In a robust and singular voice, Ian McHarg recounts the story of a life that has foreshadowed and eventually shaped environmental consciousness in the twentieth century. Along the way we meet prominent figures in the environmental movement, the design fields, and the government, from Walter Gropius to Lady Bird Johnson, all presented in rich and telling anecdotes. Early in A Quest for Life McHarg presents us with an arresting image. Describing the view from his boyhood home on the outskirts of Glasgow, he tells us that in one direction he could see the industrial miasma of smokestacks, tenements, and treeless streets, and, in another, the glories of the Scottish countryside. "I was born and bred," he writes, "on a fulcrum with two poles, city and countryside." Confronted with such a stark contrast, the man who was to become "the founder of ecological planning" began at an early age to turn literally from inhumane urban development and toward the beauty and power of Nature. Each chapter of this book illuminates key stages in McHarg’s life and in the evolution of his environmental awareness. We see him as a youth standing on a hillside beside the impressive Donald Wintersgill who, with the wave of his cane, lays out an entire village complete with lakes and forests, and thus introduces the astonished McHarg to the profession of landscape architecture. In some of the bloodiest battles of the Second World War be witnesses the magnitude of human destructive capability. Later, when he faces a crisis of conscience over his religious training and its exhortation to gain dominion over life and subdue the earth, he begins to develop a deep spiritual appreciation for the sanctity of Nature itself. His training as a designer and planner in the Modernist Bauhaus tradition, with its neglect of the environment; his bouts with tuberculosis that showed him the link between public health and city planning; his famous "Man—The Planetary Disease" speech before powerful industrialists—all stand as emblematic of battles that are still being fought today. A Quest for Life also chronicles the many triumphs in McHarg’s career. It offers fresh insight into the revolutionary design method behind his groundbreaking book, Design with Nature, and explores the development of geographical information systems. We learn firsthand about his work on the celebrated regional plans for Denver and the Twin Cities, as well as the Woodlands new town project. His most enduring contribution, however, may prove to be his four decades of teaching at the University of Pennsylvania. Through the generations of landscape architects, designers, and planners he taught there, his influence has spread around the world and into the future. As the compelling, first-person story of a remarkable individual who not only manned the barricades against environmental destruction, but helped lay the foundation For the barricades themselves, A Quest for Life is must reading for landscape architects, designers, conservationists, planners, and others concerned with the preservation of our communities and the natural environment.
