Le nuove prospettive tecnologiche e in primis la Realtà Virtuale, con i suoi visori interattivi, offrono al turismo molte applicazioni utili che meritano maggiore attenzione da parte dei ricercatori del turismo e professionisti. La riflessione dell’autore s’innesta in un filone di studi alquanto giovane e nel contempo, per alcuni versi, già “datato”, visto l’incalzante e inarrestabile procedere dell’innovazione tecnologica. Tuttavia, le tesi qui esposte riescono a mantenere ancora una 'freschezza' empirica intricante e aperta a futuri sviluppi. Le prospettive sembrano alquanto interessanti e dai primi approcci pare che l’industria del turismo non abbia mostrato alcun segno di insofferenza per tale tecnologia, anzi, sembrerebbe sfruttarla a proprio vantaggio in un’ottica pubblicitaria piuttosto 'immersiva', offrendo sempre più spesso ormai, grazie anche all’enorme potenziale della 'Rete', dei tour virtuali delle mete scelte, prima che il turista vi si rechi fisicamente. “Il dado è tratto”, ora non resta che muoversi lungo il percorso.

SAGGIO (89 pagine) - SAGGI - Fumetti e videogiochi sono due mondi che, nel corso degli anni, sono stati attraversati da molteplici e reciproche influenze. Il saggio offre una rapida introduzione ai rapporti fra i due media, attraverso numerosi esempi fumettistici e videoludici fra la fine degli anni '70 e giorni nostri. Delimitata l'area di indagine, tramite una panoramica sulle definizioni ed i contenuti di questi oggetti d'analisi, il testo si divide in tre differenti sezioni. Le prime due illustrano i passaggi di estetiche, forme espressive e personaggi dai fumetti ai videogiochi e dai videogiochi ai fumetti, con particolare attenzione per alcuni prodotti che hanno recuperato dall'altro medium elementi strutturali o iconici. Segue una terza parte dedicata alle tangenze, ai punti in comune fra i due media, a proposito della modalità di lettura del testo, della presenza di soglie e del concetto di polifonia. Francesco Toniolo (1990) si è laureato nel 2014 in Filologia moderna all'Università Cattolica di Milano, con una tesi di Letterature comparate sul videogioco "Mass Effect". Attualmente è dottorando di ricerca presso la stessa università. Si interessa di "game culture", con particolare attenzione per i rapporti tra videogiochi e forme espressive tradizionali. Ha scritto interventi per libri, riviste e siti e pubblicato altri due saggi ("Effetto di Massa. Fantascienza e robot in Mass Effect", 2014 e "Queste anime oscure. Da Demon's Souls a Bloodborne", 2015), oltre ad aver partecipato a diversi incontri e convegni sui videogiochi.

In 1945, at the end of World War II, Adolf Eichmann, the head of operations for the Nazis' Final Solution, walked into the mountains of Germany and vanished from view. Sixteen years later, an elite team of spies captured him at a bus stop in Argentina and smuggled him to Israel, resulting in one of the century's most important trials -- one that cemented the Holocaust in the public imagination. THE NAZI HUNTERS is the thrilling and fascinating story of what happened between these two events. Survivor Simon Wiesenthal opened Eichmann's case; a blind Argentinean and his teenage daughter provided crucial information. Finally, the Israeli spies -- many of whom lost family in the Holocaust -- embarked on their daring mission, recounted here in full. Based on the adult bestseller HUNTING EICHMANN, which is now in development as a major film, and illustrated with powerful photos throughout, THE NAZI HUNTERS is a can't-miss work of narrative nonfiction for middle-grade and YA readers.

The Colour of Milk is charming, Brontë-esque, compelling, special and hard to forget. I loved Mary's voice - so inspiring and likeable.

The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember. Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara's home. And only a winter child--and the ice dragon who loved her--could save her world from utter destruction. The Ice Dragon marks the highly anticipated children's book debut of George R.R. Martin, the award-winning author of the New York Times best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire and is set in the same world. Illustrated with lush, exquisitely detailed pencil drawings by acclaimed artist Yvonne Gilbert, The Ice Dragon is an unforgettable tale of courage, love, and sacrifice by one of the most honored fantasists of all time.
