Italian design impresses people all over the world through its elegance, originality and perfection. In architecture as well, Italians play a leading role and are famous for their clean and fascinating lines of design. Discover the 50 selected houses and their impressive rooms, counting amongst the most beautiful in Italy, that have been designed by renowned Italian architects in the last 10 years. With almost 400 photographs, plans and biographical information, the book presents the individual buildings and their designers and thus paints a comprehensive picture of contemporary Italian living.
Italy enjoys a reputation earned by centuries of devotion to aesthetics. As well as the ancient monuments and fantastic Renaissance period buildings, Italian culture includes key figures who have contributed to the development of architecture, from Marcus Vitruvius and Filippo Brunelleschi, to Leon Battista Alberti and Andrea Palladio and of course, Michelangelo. The list of internationally recognized contemporary Italian artists is somewhat shorter. Only two have won the prestigious Pritzker Architecture Prize: Aldo Rossi in 1990 and Renzo Piano in 1998. With a portfolio of buildings such as the Pompidou Center in Paris and the Kansai airport terminal in Japan, Piano is almost the only Italian among the greats of modern architecture. He has recently shared that distinction with Romes Massimiliano Fuksas, whose latest works have seen him join the ranks of leading designers.

Following the tradition of modernist novelists, the plot of To the Lighthouse (1927) is secondary to its philosophical introspection - the novel includes little dialogue and almost no action; most of it is written as thoughts and observations. Among the books many themes are those of loss, subjectivity, the nature of art and the problem of perception.

Piero della Francesca (1420-1492) was one of the great artists of the early Italian Renaissance. His paintings on religious subjects are marked by their simple serenity and clarity. He was also interested in geometry and mathematics and was known for his contributions in these fields. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artists oeuvre; authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artists life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
Jane Austen is one of the most enduring and skilled English novelists. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austens witty comedy of manners is one of the popular novels of all time that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues.
Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) was an Italian artist active in Rome, Naples, Malta, and Sicily. His paintings, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, had a formative influence on Baroque painting. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artists oeuvre; authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artists life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. Nostromo is a 1904 novel set in the fictitious South American republic of Costaguana. The events described in the novel are typical for political life in underdeveloped countries.

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. The Nature of a Crime is Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Fords collaborative work, a study of human psychology.

The deep love of the protagonist gives way to even more profound desperation. The feelings of the protagonist, as life is crumbles around him, are expressed profoundly by the two authors.
Italy is a country in Europe. Today, about ninety-four per cent of the people in Italy are Italian, and most people speak the Italian language. But this has not always been true. The Italy we know today became one country only in modern times. Mountains cover two-thirds of Italy, so the people were divided by their countrys geography. Italy has a rich history of empires and great thinkers, and has been a centre for Western culture for thousands of years. Italian art, fashion and food are extremely popular with the rest of the world, and tourists love to visit the exciting cities and beautiful countryside. There is something for everybody, from opera to architecture, to sunny beaches and skiing. Italians are very proud of their country, and in this book we invite you to discover why. Welcome to Italy!
