Abstract

Tra la fine dell’Ottocento e i primi decenni del Novecento il sistema dei media e il sapere neuroscientifico vivono un comune destino di epocale modernizzazione: da un lato, il cinema si afferma rapidamente come la più popolare esperienza comunicativa e spettacolare dell’Occidente, dall’altro gli sviluppi della ricerca neurologica, psicologica e psichiatrica consolidano la conoscenza dei fenomeni percettivi e mentali. Anche in Italia, così come in Francia, in Germania e negli Stati Uniti, le scienze della mente si mostrano da subito interessate a studiare il cinema e i suoi spettatori. Il nuovo medium è quindi posto al centro di una riflessione scientifica poliforme ma tutt’altro che occasionale: psicologi come Mario Ponzo, Agostino Gemelli, Sante De Sanctis e Cesare Musatti, neurologi come Giuseppe D’Abundo e Liborio Lojacono, fisiologi come Carlo Foà e Mariano Luigi Patrizi, psichiatri come Giuseppe Vidoni, Guglielmo Mondio e Fabio Pennacchi, studiano gli aspetti percettivi ed emozionali della ricezione spettatoriale, il ruolo assunto nella visione in sala dall’illusione di realtà, dalla memoria e dall’attenzione, i problematici effetti psichici e sociali prodotti dal cinema, ma anche le sue promettenti potenzialità pedagogiche. Il presente volume, corredato da un’antologia di testi d’epoca, si propone di offrire un contributo lla conoscenza e allo studio di queste riflessioni della comunità scientifica italiana, maturate in un periodo decisivo non solo per la storia delle scienze psichiche e per la storia del cinema ma anche, e soprattutto, per la problematica costruzione della moderna soggettività novecentesca.

Abstract

This study examines the influence of perspective on architecture, highlighting how critical historical changes in the representation and perception of space continue to inform the way architects design. Since its earliest developments, perspective was conceived as an exemplary form of representation that served as an ideal model of how everyday existence could be measured and ultimately judged. Temple argues that underlying the symbolic and epistemological meanings of perspective there prevails a deeply embedded redemptive view of the world that is deemed perfectible. Temple explores this idea through a genealogical investigation of the cultural and philosophical contexts of perspective throughout history, highlighting how these developments influenced architectural thought. This broad historical enquiry is accompanied by a series of case-studies of modern or contemporary buildings, each demonstrating a particular affinity with the accompanying historical model of perspective.

Abstract

The book presents the proceedings of the international conference CLiP 2003, Computer Literacy and Philology, held in Florence on 4 and 5 December 2003 within the framework of the celebrations for the 80th anniversary of Florence University. The aim of the conference was to integrate humanistic disciplines with ICT technologies, and the publication is oriented to issues related to multilingualism. The contributions illustrate different types of IT tools now available to facilitate access to and management and study of the cultural heritage, more specifically that aspect of the heritage with which philologists and linguists are typically concerned.

Abstract

[English]:This work intends to collect the results of studies and researches which contribute to strengthening the knowledge of the area and in documenting all these shades that converge on qualifying in a cultural entity as collective heritage: the single heritages, through knowledge can obtain in this way not only an adequate representation. It is thus not by chance, that this book is dedicated to the city of Naples, a city with a strong and complex identity, with classical roots, full of conflict and eager to confrontations; the artistic and cultural heritage that this city preserves, almost a catalogue of the entire Mediterranean civilization, of which it is the symbol, is made of great testimonies, but also of small fragments, of layers and mixtures, which together converge on the culture of ‘making a system’ aimed at the creation of a territory network, at the bringing closer and understanding of single cultural identities, at a best mutual perception. [Italiano]: Questo lavoro raccoglie gli esiti di studi e ricerche volti a rafforzare la conoscenza del luogo e a documentare tutte quelle sfumature che concorrono a qualificare una entità culturale come bene collettivo. I singoli oggetti dello spazio urbano, seppur diversi l’uno dall’altro, ora per dimensioni, ora per tipologia, ora per epoca, attraverso l’indagine analitica, possono ottenere non solo una rappresentazione adeguata ma anche e soprattutto una necessaria divulgazione. E non a caso questo lavoro è dedicato alla città di Napoli, una città dalla identità forte e complessa, dalle radici classiche, piena di conflitti e desiderosa di confronto; il patrimonio artistico e culturale che questa città custodisce, quasi un catalogo dell’intera civiltà mediterranea di cui è simbolo, è fatto di grandi testimonianze ma anche di piccoli frammenti, di commistioni e stratificazioni che, tutti insieme, concorrono alla cultura del ‘fare sistema’ finalizzata alla creazione di una rete di attenzione al territorio, all’avvicinamento e alla comprensione delle singole identità culturali, alla migliore percezione reciproca. Ogni oggetto o frammento può essere ricomposto nell’insieme più ampio della città e concorre a descrivere un racconto per immagini, per grafie, per segni.

Abstract

As sessile organisms, plants have to cope with a multitude of natural and anthropogenic forms of stress in their environment. Due to their longevity, this is of particular significance for trees. As a consequence, trees develop an orchestra of resilience and resistance mechanisms to biotic and abiotic stresses in order to support their growth and development in a constantly changing atmospheric and pedospheric environment. The objective of this Special Issue of Forests is to summarize state-of-art knowledge and report the current progress on the processes that determine the resilience and resistance of trees from different zonobiomes as well as all forms of biotic and abiotic stress from the molecular to the whole tree level.
