      Siamo tutti buoni e cattivi. Casti e perversi.Il giudizio morale non esiste, liberiamocene e saremo felici. Facile a dirsi, ma… da dove iniziare? Questo sito è il punto di partenza giusto. Ricette di cucina, racconti di locali particolari, suggestioni visive. Tutto ruota intorno al mondo dell’eros, della cucina, della fantasia e della seduzione. Per creare un mondo dove tutto è possibile. Per rendere la cucina e il sesso momenti di piacere estremo, di goduria senza limiti e, perché no, di grande divertimento. Portare il sesso in cucina. Oppure il cibo a letto. Sarete voi, di volta in volta, a scegliere. Perché, ricordate: “Life is a dare adventure, or nothing at all” ( HelenKeller).

      • Richard C. Sha on "Romantic Science and Romantic Imagination"

        The Fletcher Lecture 2013-2014 April 9, 2014 | ASU Tempe campus The 2013-2014 Ian Fletcher Memorial Lecture features Richard C. Sha, Professor of Literature at American University. Sha is currently working on a book about how scientists understood the imagination during the Romantic period, with chapters covering physiology, neurology, chemistry and physics, midwifery, and psychology. Work on this book has been supported by a year-long NEH Fellowship in 2012-13 and portions of the manuscript have appeared in Configurations and European Romantic Review. He is also editing a volume of essays with Joel Faflak on Romanticism and Emotion, forthcoming from Cambridge UP. With physicist Nathan Harshman, Sha taught an undergraduate seminar on “Bridging the Two Cultures: Science and Literature” in spring 2012 and in fall 2013. He plans to teach a course on “Thinking Emotion: From Physiology to Ethics” with Bryan Fantie (neuro-psychologist) and April Shelford (Enlightenment historian) in 2014. Sha will present "Romantic Science and Romantic Imagination." He theorizes that Romantic poets, scientists, and philosophers saw the imagination as mattering because it was a primary force behind the production of knowledge. The entry under “Imagination” in Rees’ Cyclopedia, for instance, begins: “Imagination is a power or faculty of the soul, whereby it conceives and forms ideas of things, by means of the impressions made on the fibres of the brain, by sensation.” In Kant, and more generally, the imagination was the ground of perception and new thought. The imagination allows the mind to conceive, but as Plato, Descartes, Kant and others recognized, nothing guarantees the accuracy of its conceptions. Accuracy is the task of reason for Kant or of experimental regulation in science after the middle of the nineteenth century. As Sha will show, the Romantic imagination, even within science, played a key role in the transition from knowledge production to knowledge regulation.

        • Dana Gooley: Music, Virtuosity, and the Stage of Romanticism


          from The Frick Collection / Added

          41 Plays / / 0 Comments

          The modern, Romantic music virtuoso borrowed postures and gestures from sculpture, painting, and dramatic acting and raised the profile of performers in the public eye. This presentation will consider the ways in which performers such as Liszt, Chopin, and Paganini transformed the image of the virtuoso. Playing musical excerpts on the piano, Professor Dana Gooley will show how virtuosos paid musical homage to, and created a pantheon of, composer-heroes. Location: The Frick Collection, New York Event Date: 10.02.13 Speaker: Dana Gooley

              • Aivazovsky - A Russian fairytale


                from KA21 / CastYourArt / Added

                Aivazovsky is regarded as the master of seascapes. In his lifetime he dedicated himself to this motif as a metaphor for life, of desire as well as the struggle between nature and culture. For the first time, the Bank Austria Kunstforum shows a retrospective of the artist outside of Russia and the Ukraine. There are fifty representative paintings on display, among them main works from the Aivazovsky Museum in Feodosia and the Russian Museum in Saint Petersburg that have never been shown abroad. As legend has it, he died in his studio with a brush in his hand, 111 years ago. In his exceptionally long life he actually left only this one painting unfinished, out of the estimated 6000 he painted. In his lifetime his works were already marvelled at, admired, venerated – and purchased. A CastYourArt exhibition-portrait. | www.castyourart.com

Erste Werkschau in Deutschland nach 190 Jahren: Mit seinem “Floß der Medusa” wurde Théodore Géricault berühmt. Doch er war weniger pathetischer Romantiker als schonungsloser Porträtist des Kreatürlichen, wie die Schirn überzeugend vorführt.
