Download Elogio del pomodoro (Saggi) (Italian Edition) by Pietro Citati PDF

By Pietro Citati

Pietro Citati ha nostalgia dei pomodori che mangiava da bambino, durante le lunghe estati al mare. Il pomodoro period il frutto supremo di quelle vacanze, con le sue forme diversified, complicate, con le sue spaccature e screziature «e talvolta generosi aspetti barocchi, che piacevano ai pittori napoletani del diciassettesimo secolo». Il rimpianto in keeping with los angeles propria felice infanzia ha fatto del Citati adulto un osservatore incomparabilmente acuto dei bambini tra i tre e i dieci anni. Passare il pace con loro è consistent with lui los angeles cosa più divertente della vita: ama i loro pensieri vivaci e paradossali; ama guardarli mentre costruiscono castelli di sabbia e acqua, con torri e alti ponti levatoi, e poi li buttano giù, con le mani e con i piedi, senza nessuna ragione, esattamente come facevano i bambini nell'Iliade. Insieme ai pomodori e ai bambini, Citati ama i lunghi secoli della civiltà europea. Dai tempi dell'Odissea e di Erodoto - cube in questo libro in cui si combinano miracolosamente frivolezza e profondità - il volto dell'Europa non è molto cambiato. I nostri caratteri sono immutati: l. a. pazienza, l. a. tolleranza, l'ironia, l. a. straordinaria capacità di trasformarci, recitare, diventare diversi, rimanendo sempre identici a noi stessi. Come pochi scrittori d'oggi, Citati conosce i miti elaborati sul nostro continente. Il più grandioso è quello della melanconia, che nasce in Grecia e si diffonde ovunque in Europa, come se fosse l'ombra dell'attiva e brillante luce occidentale: un grande nodo vibrante di contraddizioni e paradossi che minaccia di distruggerci se non lo accettiamo sino in fondo, senza incertezze e senza ritegni, sino a trarne, come hanno fatto tanti filosofi, poeti, artisti, le leggi e los angeles salvezza del mondo. Citati non crede a tante interpretazioni moderne della società in cui viviamo. Ci parla della globalizzazione in step with dirci che in realtà in questi ultimi decenni è avvenuto il fenomeno opposto: il mondo è caduto preda della differenziazione, della frantumazione, della moltiplicazione. Percepisce il senso di decadimento e di vergogna oggi diffuso in Italia, ma subito osserva che il nostro è un paese pieno di eccezioni: al Nord, al Sud, al Centro c¿è sempre una piccola oasi, un paese, una cittadina polverosa di secoli, di cui uno, appena li vede, ama le strade, le case, gli orti, e persino i cittadini. A chi lamenta l. a. morte dello spirito dei Vangeli, risponde che da secoli non esisteva nel cristianesimo un nucleo così puro e ardente come quello di oggi. Crede appassionatamente nel dono più vero dell¿Europa: quello di capire. Non gli importa, in fondo, se conosceremo los angeles decadenza, se saremo più poveri e consumeremo di meno: è certo che los angeles nostra civiltà continuerà a esistere fino a quando sapremo accogliere, come facciamo da ventiquattro secoli con ogni forza della mente, della fantasia, del corpo, tutte le tradizioni, tutti i miti, tutte le religioni, tutti o quasi tutti gli esseri umani.

As a young person born to a Hong Kong chinese language father and an American mom growing to be up in Hong Kong, la, and Beijing, i used to be regularly asking an identical query: who am I?

Whenever I puzzled my id, my father could regularly say to me, “Son, you will be a bridge." i have constantly puzzled approximately that. most likely, that intended being a few type of a cultural go-between. whereas i did not thoroughly comprehend what my father was once asserting on the time, the belief of being a bridge stayed with me.

This e-book arose from my very own desire for organizing ideas. In enterprise and in kin existence, i'm in consistent discussion with either units of worldviews – one chinese language, one Western.

But how do I deal with Chinese-Western contradictions? How do I carry units of occasionally competing rules together?

The current “mixed” rubrics were not quite important.

“Hapa," whereas inclusive, provided no significant suggestions. It was once a pleasant thought and all—the inspiration of combined humans of all colours united in anti-racism.

But Hapa used to be caught within the yr 2000.

Hapa had no specifics. It had no solutions for a post-global monetary challenge, extra polarized global. Hapa used to be no assist in making experience (as a combined individual) of a global witnessing a resurgent China, an international during which the West faces a couple of challenges.

At the tip of the day, I’m either chinese language and Western.

I needed to transcend Hapa and Eurasian.
