I rioni di Roma: Storia, segreti, monumenti, tradizioni, leggende, curiosita. Volume 2

Una passeggiata alla scoperta o alla rivisitazione della storia, dei monumenti, dei palazzi, delle chiese di Roma. Seguendo una serie di itinerari proposti dagli autori, che toccano le vie, le piazze, i luoghi più significativi di ogni rione, sarà possibile addentrarsi profondamente nel tessuto cittadino, godere delle sue meraviglie artistiche, venire a conoscenza di curiosità e notizie insolite relative a tradizioni ormai dimenticate o a personaggi famosi.

Le ricostruzioni sono arricchite da aneddoti illuminanti, che danno vita all'antico rudere, o da resoconti di fatti di cronaca ambientati in un moderno palazzo.
Le descrizioni ampie e puntuali ci permettono di appassionarci al "racconto" urbanistico, anche con il sussidio iconografico di immagini antiche e moderne, che ci fanno scorgere le profonde trasformazioni intervenute nel corso dei secoli.

Camminare per le strade del rione, vagabondare tra i vicoli e le piazze lasciandosi coinvolgere dall'atmosfera "locale" ci porterà dunque a vivere la città nel quotidiano, a scoprire i suoi tesori d'arte e le innumerevoli curiosità e leggende del passato.

 Mythology: The Voyage of the Hero
Mythology: The Voyage of the Hero
Mythology: The Voyage of the Hero
Oxford University Press
Author: David Adams Leeming
1998
Pages: 288
Format: PDF
Size: 17 mb
Language: English

What makes something mythic? What do mythic events and narratives have to do with us? In Mythology, David Leeming offers an unusual and effective approach to the subject of mythology by stressing universal themes through myths of many cultures. This anthology collects a wide array of narrative texts from the Bible to English literature to interpretations by Joseph Campbell, C.G. Jung, and others, which illustrate how myths serve whole societies in our universal search for meaning.
Leeming illustrates the various stages or rites of passage of the mythic universal hero, from birth to childhood, through trial and quest, death, descent, rebirth, and ascension. The arrangement of texts by themes such as "Childhood, Initiation and Divine Signs," "The Descent to the Underworld," and "Resurrection and Rebirth" strip mythic characters of their many national and cultural "masks" to reveal their archetypal aspects. Real figures, including Jesus and Mohammed, are also included underlining the theory that myths are real and can be applied to real life. This edition is updated to include additional heroine myths, as well as Navajo, Indonesian, Indian, Chinese, and African tales.
