This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: With a foreword by Tom Wolfe, this is a stunning work on Casa Malaparte, one of the world's most famous and controversial houses -- admired, imitated, and celebrated for over fifty years.Beautiful yet enigmatic, Casa Malaparte has stood for nearly 50 years atop a limestone cliff on the Isle of Capri. The vision of its singular architectural form against the breathtaking backdrop of the Mediterranean has been likened to "the sudden recovery of a lost dream." Built between the years 1938-40 by Curzio Malaparte, a controversial and strongly political Italian novelist, playwright, and filmmaker, Casa Malaparte is a timeless reminder of one man's vision -- visually arresting and stylistically uncategorizable (much like this book).With a foreword by Tom Wolfe, Malaparte: A House Like Me is organized and edited by noted architect, designer, and writer Michael McDonough, and brings together the combined efforts of artists, historians, architects, and writers to unlock the meanings and mysteries behind Casa Malaparte. Provocative essays, sketches, and speculative projects by, among others, Phillip Lopate, Robert Venturi, Carla Fendi, Kar. N° de ref. de la librería

Sinopsis: Of this special limited edition, one hundred copies have been produced, numbered 1 to 100, and signed by the author, Michael McDonough. Malaparte: A House Like Me (Limited Edition) offers an extraordinary look at Malaparte, the man and the house. Often called the most beautiful house in the world, Casa Malaparte in Capri, Italy, is dramatically sited on a promontory overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It was home to Curzio Malaparte (1898-1957), the Italian writer who designed the building. A perpetual enigma, he still confounds nearly all who care to look. Actor, novelist, poet, filmmaker, soldier, playwright, journalist, political figure, prisoner, composer, charmer - inventor and revealer of truths - Malaparte associated with Mussolini and Stalin, vilified Hitler, and admired Mao. He was a journalist in London, a collaborator with the Surrealists in Paris, and a war correspondent in Berlin and on the Russian front. Casa come me, he called the building - house like me - inviting endless speculation as to what meaning lay within. Much as Picasso, Breton, Pound, Eliot and Godard discovered the house and its legendary owner earlier in the century, such international personalities as Robert Venturi, Emilio Ambasz, Willem Dafoe, Steven Holl, Michael Graves, Peter Eisenman, Arata Isozaki, Louis Cha, Carla Fendi, James Wines, and Karl Lagerfeld have created this special portfolio embodying unique insights into the controversial artist and his provocative home. A work of art in itself, Malaparte: A House Like Me includes a series of photographs produced especially by the renowned Italian photographer Mimmo Jodice, archival materials and documents, poetry, original art, letters, memoirs, commentaries, and an original musical score. Organized and edited by noted architect, designer, and writer Michael McDonough, this remarkable book ultimately celebrates Casa Malaparte's enigmatic contradictions, seeing it as a living literary work, an autobiography, and a mysterious tabula rasa: a house that lives in myth.
