Carlo Ginzburg’s brilliant and timely new essay collection takes a bold stand against naive positivism and allegedly sophisticated neo-skepticism. It looks deeply into questions raised by decades of post-structuralism: What constitutes historical truth? How do we draw a boundary between truth and fiction? What is the relationship between history and memory? How do we grapple with the historical conventions that inform, in different ways, all written documents? In his answers, Ginzburg peels away layers of subsequent readings and interpretations that envelop every text to make a larger argument about history and fiction. Interwoven with compelling autobiographical references, Threads and Traces bears moving witness to Ginzburg’s life as a European Jew, the abiding strength of his scholarship, and his deep engagement with the historian’s craft.

In the 1993 edition, I considered black madonnas a metaphor for a memory of the time when the earth was belived to be the body of woman and all creatures were equal, a memory transmitted in vernacular traditions of earth-bounded cultures, historically expressed in cultural and poltical resistance, and glimpsed today in movements aiming for transformation. Sine then my understanding of black madonnas has been deepened by genetics finding that the orgin of modern humans is Africa, that migrations from Africa carried a primordial belief in a dar woman divinity to all continents. Black madonnas and other dark women of the world suggest a metaphor for healing millennial divisions of gender and race and concerted movements for justice.

The Cheese and the Worms is an incisive study of popular culture in the sixteenth century as seen through the eyes of one man, the miller known as Menocchio, who was accused of heresy during the Inquisition and sentenced to death. Carlo Ginzburg uses the trial records to illustrate the confusing political and religious conditions of the time. For a common miller, Menocchio was surprisingly literate. In his trial testimony he made references to more than a dozen books, including the Bible, Boccaccio's Decameron, Mandeville's Travels, and a "mysterious" book that may have been the Koran. And what he read he recast in terms familiar to him, as in his own version of the creation: "All was chaos, that is earth, air, water, and fire were mixed together; and of that bulk a mass formed—just as cheese is made out of milk—and worms appeared in it, and these were the angels." Ginzburg’s influential book has been widely regarded as an early example of the analytic, case-oriented approach known as microhistory. In a thoughtful new preface, Ginzburg offers his own corollary to Menocchio’s story as he considers the discrepancy between the intentions of the writer and what gets written. The Italian miller’s story and Ginzburg’s work continue to resonate with modern readers because they focus on how oral and written culture are inextricably linked. Menocchio’s 500-year-old challenge to authority remains evocative and vital today. -- Lauro Martines

Bianco è il primo sguardo sul mondo da cui deriva il procedimento di percezione e costruzione del circostante. Il bianco, come scrivono Castoldi e Hillman, è all'origine delle religioni, dell'arte, del linguaggio e rappresenta l'incontro primo tra il sensibile e il visibile. Architetture del bianco è un viaggio teorico-creativo attorno alle lingue del bianco, ripercorrendo, nei primi capitoli, alcune importanti rappresentazioni tra arte e scrittura, ricerca della linfa primaria, mitologica da cui le espressività hanno mosso i loro segni. Il libro rilegge importanti percorsi creativi spinti nelle trame del bianco e della sua luce, e il contagio linguistico, che con il suo coinvolgimento ha determinato un itinerario consegnato in differenti ambiti espressivi al nuovo millennio. Il niveo colore e la ricerca monocroma connotano l'originalità dell'arte del Novecento. Sul finire degli anni '50 un fremito attraversa l'Europa e le culture d'oltreoceano, accendendo luci monocrome lungo una linea immaginaria, bianca, di confine tra i linguaggi del secolo. Le esposizioni monocrome, che coincidono con rivendicazioni sociali, linguistiche, annunciano la reviviscenza dello spirito avanguardistico. Gli artisti che segnano questa storia cercano l'antica simbiosi tra le realtà dell'invisibile, seguendo le tracce di Malevic?, Manzoni, Castellani, Savelli, Scarpa, Fontana. Lo studio traccia un panorama, anche internazionale, di artisti noti e meno noti, che con storicità differenti, secondo un andare frattalico, un intimo affanno hanno conquistato un'idea di bianco e di luce, quale linguaggio estremo della propria ricerca. Le derive del bianco si aprono e si concludono con il riferimento al viaggio è all'ultimo sogno bianco, silenzioso di Pippa Bacca, non più corpo, ma opera d'arte. VITTORIA BIASI, critica e storica dell'arte contemporanea, è docente di Storia dell'Arte Contemporanea presso l'Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. Dopo il corso laurea in studi umanistici, si interessa alle teorie del bianco frequentando per un anno l'École de Haute Étude a Parigi con Hubert Damish. Vicina ad artisti interpreti della monocromia bianca, si dedica alla critica teorica realizzando eventi, mostre nazionali e internazionali con particolare attenzione agli scenari culturali dell'oriente.
