Lawrence, David Herbert

Lady Chatterley's lover / D. H. Lawrence ; edited with an introduction by Luciana Pirè

Firenze [etc.] : Giunti, 2011

Abstract: 'With a queer obedience, she lay down on the blanket. Then she felt the soft, groping, helplessy desiderous hand touching her body, feeling for her face. The hand stroked her face softly, softly, with infinite soothing and assurance, and at last there was the soft touch of a kiss on her cheek. She lay quite still, in a sort of sleep, in a sort of dream.' In versione integrale, i più grandi classici della letteratura angloamericana in lingua originale. Le opere sono accuratamente commentate e riportano la biografia dei singoli autori.

Abstract: Il volume racconta in maniera ricca e dettagliata tutte le fasi della trasformazione di Barbie, la bambola più famosa del mondo da sempre icona indiscussa di stile e femminilità, in Caterina de' Medici con indosso l'abito, comprensivo di accessori, del suo matrimonio con Enrico di Valois, avvenuto il 27 ottobre 1533. L'abito è stato presentato il 18 gennaio 2008 a Palazzo Medici Riccardi, in occasione di Pitti Bimbo. Molte aziende hanno contribuito alla straordinaria trasformazione, compiendo ciascuna un piccolo capolavoro di alta sartoria o oreficeria: la Decobel di Montale (Pistoia) ha fornito la stoffa realizzata appositamente con tecniche manuali e digitali dalla pittrice Laura Armani. La Sartoria Teatrale Fiorentina di Massimo Poli ha realizzato l'abito in scala reale. Il sarto Mauro Angiolini, specializzato in creazione di vestiti e restauro di bambole antiche ha invece realizzato l'abito in scala. Le scarpette sono state invece ricreate dal Calzaturificio Sacchi, dal 1829 specializzato in produzione di calzature di scena, mentre dei gioielli si è occupato il Laboratorio Orafo La Vena d'Oro. Le miniature di scarpe e gioielli sono state invece eseguite rispettivamente da Mauro Angiolini e dalla GM Microfusione di Giovanni Melozzi. Completano il volume un'ampia introduzione sulla simbologia di Barbie, la storia di Palazzo Medici Riccardi, la figura di Caterina de' Medici, la vita a corte e alcune curiosità di cosmesi nel Rinascimento.

Vacanze in villa / Madeleine Wickham [i. e. Sophie Kinsella] ; traduzione di Nicoletta Lamberti

Milano : Mondadori, 2011

Abstract: Chloe ha davvero bisogno di una vacanza. Non ne può più di confezionare abiti nuziali, lei poi che non è neanche sposata! Ed è un momento delicato perché Philip, il suo compagno, ha seri problemi di lavoro e non riesce a pensare ad altro. Meno male che Gerard, uno dei suoi più cari amici, le presta la sua meravigliosa villa in Spagna dove trascorrere qualche giorno in pace... Hugh non è felice. Amanda, la sua impeccabile moglie, sembra più interessata ai colori delle pareti del loro lussuoso appartamento che a lui, e a Hugh non resta che lavorare dalla mattina alla sera. Ma Gerard, un vecchio compagno di scuola che ha rincontrato per caso, gli dà l'occasione di spezzare questa opprimente routine proponendogli un breve soggiorno nella sua casa in Spagna... Perfetto! E così Chloe e Hugh si ritrovano con le rispettive famiglie nello stesso momento e nello stesso posto, scoprendo con grande disappunto che Gerard ha promesso la villa a entrambi. Dopo lo sconcerto iniziale, sono costretti a convivere tra piccoli disagi e, soprattutto, tensioni sotterranee. Perché Chloe e Hugh hanno un passato in comune, un passato che torna prepotentemente a galla durante una vacanza che si rivelerà piena di imprevisti e sorprese. Vacanze in villa è una commedia sulla difficoltà di difendere l'amore dalle insidie dell'abitudine e della quotidianità, in una sfida che si combatte - e si vince - giorno dopo giorno.

A song of ice and fire. 1: A game of thrones / George R. R. Martin

London : Harper Voyager, 2011

Abstract: First volume of a brilliant new fantasy trilogy: the most powerful, original and absorbing new epic since Stephen Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. The first volume of George R R Martin's glorious high fantasy tells the tragic story of treachery, greed and war that threatens the unity of the Seven Kingdoms south of the Wall. Martin unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dimensions, thronged with memorable characters, a story of treachery and ambition, love and magic. Set in a fabulous world scarred by battle and catastrophe over 8000 years of recorded history, it tells of the deeds of men and women locked in the deadliest of conflicts and the terrible legacy they will leave their children. In the game of thrones, you win or you die. And in the bitter-cold, unliving lands beyond the Wall, a terrible winter gathers and the others -- the undead, the neverborn, wildlings to whom the threat of the sword is nothing -- make ready to descend on the realms of men. A Game of Thrones begins the most imaginative, ambitious and compelling fantasy epic since The Lord of the Rings. Thronged with memorable characters, it unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dimensions. There have been many pretenders to the throne of Tolkien: now at last he has a true heir.

Cinderella ate my daughter : dispatches from the front lines of the new girlie-girl culture / Peggy Orenstein

New York: HarperCollins, 2011

Abstract: Pink and pretty or predatory and hardened, sexualized girlhood influences our daughters from infancy onward, telling them that how a girl looks matters more than who she is. Somewhere between the exhilarating rise of Girl Power in the 1990s and today, the pursuit of physical perfection has been recast as a source--the source--of female empowerment. And commercialization has spread the message faster and farther, reaching girls at ever-younger ages.But, realistically, how many times can you say no when your daughter begs for a pint-size wedding gown or the latest Hannah Montana CD? And how dangerous is pink and pretty anyway--especially given girls' successes in the classroom and on the playing field? Being a princess is just make-believe, after all; eventually they grow out of it. Or do they? Does playing Cinderella shield girls from early sexualization--or prime them for it? Could today's little princess become tomorrow's sexting teen? And what if she does? Would that make her in charge of her sexuality--or an unwitting captive to it?Those questions hit home with Peggy Orenstein, so she went sleuthing. She visited Disneyland and the international toy fair, trolled American Girl Place and Pottery Barn Kids, and met beauty pageant parents with preschoolers tricked out like Vegas showgirls. She dissected the science, created an online avatar, and parsed the original fairy tales. The stakes turn out to be higher than she--or we--ever imagined: nothing less than the health, development, and futures of our girls. From premature sexualization to the risk of depression to rising rates of narcissism, the potential negative impact of this new girlie-girl culture is undeniable--yet armed with awareness and recognition, parents can effectively counterbalance its influence in their daughters' lives.Cinderella Ate My Daughter is a must-read for anyone who cares about girls, and for parents helping their daughters navigate the rocky road to adulthood.

La presenza francescana in Terra Santa / Pierbattista Pizzaballa

Milano : ETS, 2011

Abstract: Il libro "La presenza francescana in Terra Santa" illustra, attraverso brevi dati storici e statistici, i diversi aspetti religiosi e sociali del lavoro ecclesiale, il servizio di accoglienza dei pellegrini e altre attività ecumeniche e scientifiche della Custodia di Terra Santa. Il DVD allegato "Terra Sancta. Custodi delle sorgenti della Salvezza": in un filmato di 3.40', sullo sfondo di immagini esclusive e altamente suggestive, si dipana un percorso senza uguali, illustrato da indicazioni geografiche realizzate in computer-grafica con mappe e cartine e corredato da essenziali cenni storici e accurati riferimenti biblico-archeologici. Agli aspetti descrittivi, funzionali per il pellegrino-visitatore alla pianificazione del proprio itinerario, si unisce Bibbia alla mano - l'invito ad un viaggio più grande, quello della riflessione e del rinnovamento spirituale, compiutamente accompagnato dagli interventi dei religiosi.

A most wanted man / John Le Carre

[London] : Sceptre, 2011

Abstract: A half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg at dead of night. He has an improbable amount of cash secreted in a purse round his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, an idealistic young German civil rights lawyer, determines to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client's survival becomes more important to her than her own career. In pursuit of Issa's mysterious past, she confronts the incongruous Tommy Brue, the sixty-year-old scion of Brue Frères, a failing British bank based in Hamburg. A triangle of impossible loves is born. Meanwhile, scenting a sure kill in the so-called War on Terror, the spies of three nations converge upon the innocents

Movement for the young child : a handbook for eurythmists and kindergarten teachers / Estelle Bryer

Spring Valley, NY : Waldorf Early Childhood Association of New York, [2011]

Abstract: This treasury of stories, songs, verses, and games is intended for use in the kindergarten circle time as well as the eurythmy lesson, to bring the joy and healing power of movement to life. Estelle Bryer shares the insights of 43 years as a eurythmist and Waldorf kindergarten teacher: the development of the child, the importance of movement and gesture, and suggestions on discipline, music and structuring a lesson. Whether done with eurythmy gestures or with richly imaginative descriptive gestures, the many sample lessons provide plenty of opportunities in these stories and verses for clapping, stamping; walking on tip-toe, walking on heels; skipping, hopping; and finger-play, as well as contrasts between loud and soft, vigorous and quiet, contraction and expansion, tension and relaxation. Formerly available as Eurythmy for the Young Child, this new edition has been been thoroughly revised and corrected, and the music newly edited by Sally Schweizer.
