The Alphabet of the Stars. Gianbattista Vittorioso, his piece of sky

No stars are seen tonight in the sky over Prater, in Vienna. It's August. "That" night was a night at the end of May. I was not there. My father told me about it. Ever since I was a child. And that time we saw them together in Madrid. Stars seen and [...]

Starry sky … with the eyes of unborn babies … of abused women … of humiliated men … from an unkind power … and without hono u r! >:< … Clouded sky … we salute you … along with shooting stars … who flee to emigrate … to pristine … galaxies!

Men and flying machines: the challenge continues

It’s great to see how a man can overcome the challenges he faces: unconditionally good in Franky Zapata! It is undoubtedly a very personal exploit for a man who is already an extraordinary jet-ski champion. Flying platforms date back to 1953 with [...]

The Alphabet of the Stars. Ottavia Casagrande her piece of sky

Cursed, blessed, blasphemed. Hallowed. Electric, empty, indifferent. Pale, leaden, disrupted by clouds, lightning. Fire red, dawn pink, placid, blue, immense, smog yellow. In shock, in storm, in tears. Skew, cut, in front. Perforated with stars, cut [...]

The Alphabet of the Stars. Francesca Bocca-Aldaqre, her piece of sky

It is Jupiter, in his clarity, that announces that the work has been completed. In my impatience as a child, I was taught to wait to see it for fun, to declare the arrival of the evening, even before the more reliable Venus announced vespers.

The Alphabet of the Stars. Beatrice Midollini, her piece of sky

It doesn’t matter if I don’t see shooting stars on the night of San Lorenzo: I have touched a comet. A 10-year long journey of 6 and a half billion kilometres. You see, Rosetta went into orbit and Philae landed on surface. I was there too. We were [...]

La Rivista - Civiltà delle Macchine
