Descripción

Language: N/A. Brand new Book. In a period which seems to want to delete the physicality of spaces in favour of building virtual territories that are shared in an apparently democratic manner, in a reality that tends to shorten distances and time, the "place" voices its ancestral call, it does not lose force but instead claims its symbolic and generative importance, reaffirming itself and demanding a new and urgent identity. And the familiar space of our daily life becomes an appeal, a connection with the rest of the world, a cure against a depersonalising modernity. For this reason the concept of living and dwelling appears extremely relevant, as a primary need, firstly, and, above all as social and human expression. Thus, observing this kaleidoscope of dwellings conceived, pursued by man without respite, to live in his own space, goes beyond any technical, eco-sustainable, social or strategic curiosity. Dwellings represent a sort of intermediate surface between the individual's inside world and outside world, thus becoming precious anthropological interfaces that can give man the time to decode the complexity of the world. Adapted to the specificity of the territory and eco-compatible, mostly out of necessity rather than choice, these dwellings represent man's protective shell, they contain him, they prepare him to respond to the social and practical needs of his existence. From the Indian rural villages to the community huts in Irian Jaya, from the fortified dwellings of Burkina Faso, to the Suri shepherd villages run by generational groups, it is on the specificity of all these dwellings that human society is built. For this reason, to speak of dwelling is the most interesting way to speak of mankind. AUTHOR: Jago Corazza, journalist, publicist and director, but above all photographer and traveller, he began contributing to an important photo agency in Bologna at the early age of 15. His passion for travel led him to Africa, first as traveller and then as a guide throughout the continent. He has made documentaries in more than 120 countries in Asia, Oceania, Africa and the three Americas. Greta Ropa, author, foreign language correspondent, has a degree in human resource training and selection studies. She has many years' experience in the fashion and advertising sector. She works as a model and photo-model for a number of agencies of national and international fame. Illustrated. N° de ref. de la librería AAJ9788854410015

Reseña del editor:

"In a period which seems to increasingly favour virtual worlds the familiar space of a physical home is becoming ever more appealing as cure against the depersonalizing of modernity. Consequently the concept of home is becoming increasingly relevent and this book, which looks at the vaired forms of domestic dwelling, and the people who live in them, offers a unique understanding of the modern interpretation of home. From the Indian rural villages to the community huts in Irian Jaya, from the fortified dwellings of Burkina Faso, to the Suri shepherd villages run by generational groups, this book offers a huge an insight into the huge numbers of places that people call home.
