Firenze, Polistampa 2011, cm.15,5x20, pp.106, ill.a col. br.copertina figurata a colori. Questa pubblicazione vuole offrire al pubblico un gruppo di significativi reperti archeologici di Fiesole, conservati ed esposti nel locale Museo Civico. Non è una guida in senso stretto, bensì uno strumento per orientarsi nelle diverse sale alla scoperta degli oggetti più curiosi e particolari. Ognuno di essi è parte della storia di Fiesole: la racconta e la rappresenta al visitatore. È tuttavia difficile cogliere tra i tanti oggetti, a volte di dimensioni davvero ridotte, quell'aspetto particolare e, in esso, il dettaglio significativo che metta in moto la curiosità e la volontà di capire. Di qui l'idea di usare l'obiettivo fotografico e il forte ingrandimento. Gli oggetti sono stati scelti per la loro qualità, espressività e rappresentatività nel contesto archeologico fiesolano. Sono documenti e fonti storiche di primaria importanza. Da un certo punto di vista, questo libro suggerisce domande più che risposte e invita a vedere e a cercare non solo nell'insieme ma anche nel dettaglio la storia degli uomini e delle donne di Fiesole e delle civiltà etrusca, romana e longobarda.

Oxford University Press 1993, cm.22x28, pp.IX,406, hardcover, dustjacket. Lying at the heart of the Western classical tradition, the rich legacy of the arts of ancient Greece and Rome continues to provide inspiration and guidance to artists and art lovers everywhere. Lavishly illustrated and masterfully prepared under the editorship of John Boardman, one of the world's preeminent classicists, The Oxford History of Classical Art offers readers the definitive companion to the artistic and architectural achievements of the Greco-Roman world, from the rise of the Greek city-states to the fall of the Roman Empire. Written by Boardman and a team of distinguished experts, this sumptuous volume presents the full pageantry and glory of the classical world, tracing the origins and evolution of classical art as it gradually moved from the art of individuals and small communities to the art of a world power. Particular attention is paid throughout to the splendor and quality of the arts themselves, aptly represented in 528 stunningly beautiful black and white and full-color plates. From the stiffly representational style of early antiquity and the oriental influence of Egypt and Mesopotamia to the full flowering of the Greece's Golden Age, text and illustrations work together to enhance our appreciation of the fascinating process through which humanity itself became the central focus of art, and artists and artisans sought for the first time not just to imitate the natural world, but to actually improve on nature through perfection of form and composition. Turning to Rome, the contributors dramatically illustrate that Roman art was far more than a mere pastiche of Greek influences. They take an in-depth look at the Romans' profound contributions to architecture, as they used their technical progress with arch, vault, and the use of brick and concrete, to create new attitudes to the use of space and light and principles of design which went far beyond the more limited ambitions of the Greek world. Destined to become the definitive sourcebook in its field, The Oxford History of Classical Art is indispensable for anyone intrigued by the timeless heritage of the ancient world, as well as for artists and students of art and art history.

Preface de Eric Gubel. geneve, Georges Naef 2008, cm.23x28,5, pp.214, ill.col. Broché. Sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité, ce livre vous convie à la découverte de l'art phénicien à travers l'histoire, la culture, les croyances, l'artisanat d'un peuple mais aussi à travers ses mythes et ses légendes. Maha El-Khalil Chalabi a dans son cœur l'amour du beau ; la magie l'a inspirée, le savoir-faire d'artisans a fait le reste. Mettant plus de 6.000 ans de savoir-faire au service d'une conception unique, mariant l'antique et le contemporain, elle nous propose de véritables pièces de collection, témoignages de la virtuosité légendaire de ses nobles et prestigieux ancêtres. Se basant sur les témoignages des historiens et les documents archéologiques, elle les teinte de sa sensibilité propre et crée un art nouveau, personnel, vivant, qui continue la tradition et la renouvelle : mobilier, art de la table, objets décoratifs mais également projets d'architecture, de décoration, d'urbanisme et d'aménagement paysager. L'auteur nous livre ici le fruit d'une passion et nous propose un nouvel art de vivre.

Thames & Hudson 2001, cm.19x25, pp.320, 358 illustrations. hardcover, dustjacket. Greek pottery has long fascinated scholars and historians of art. It provides a continuous commentary on all other Greek arts, even sculpture, and the scenes figured on the vases can prove to be as subtle and informative as the works of Greek literature. In no other art of antiquity do we come closer to the visual experience of the ancient Greeks or share their views on life, myth, and even politics. The stylistic history of Greek vases has been demonstrated in other Thames & Hudson books by John Boardman. Here he sketches that history but goes on to explore the many other matters that make the study so fruitful. He describes the methods of making and decorating vases, the processes of identifying the artists, life in the potters' quarter in Greek towns, the way in which the wares were traded far beyond the borders of the Greek world, from Morocco to Persia, from Russia to the Sudan, and problems in making and decorating them. He shows how Greek artists exercised a style of narrative in art that was long influential in the West, and how their pictures reflected not simply on storytelling but on the politics and social order of the day. The vases' function in Greek culture and as messengers of style and subject are explained.
