PAROLE PER QUANDO SEI SENZA PAROLE

Hardcover/Italian - 178 pagine

18 Luglio 2019

PIU DI 800 AFORISMI ORIGINALI E 40 STUZZICANTI ILLUSTRAZIONI

Non sarete mai senza parole dopo aver letto questo libro, di qualunque età voi siate. Questa è una raccolta di citazioni, commenti ed enunciati originali, divertenti e a volte crudeli che si spera forniscano la saggezza necessaria quando pensate "Ho ignorato consigli terribili e fatto errori eccellenti".
Un mix sapiente di aforismi spiritosi, a volte incredibili e spesso decisamente profondi, truismi per solleticare il cuore e provocare la mente.
Queste frasi divertono gli amici, fan colpo durante un discorso, oppure scaldano la serata prima di spegnere la luce. Fate tesoro che "Acquistare abilità inestimabili ti dà valore" e scervellatevi perché "Il bianco e nero fa bene alla materia grigia", mentre "Manda le tue labbra a un nuovo indirizzo, mi sono trasferito" può comunicare in modo efficace l'incomunicabile.
Ricordatevi che "Non è mai un buon momento, ma è sempre il momento buono" è un ottimo consiglio pratico e che, in ogni caso, "Un grande amore inizia sempre con una minaccia: voglio stare con te per sempre­­­".

LA POLITICA ITALIANA

SPIEGATA A MIA FIGLIA

Hardcover/Italian - 194 pagine

11 Maggio 2018

COME OCCUPARE UNA POLTRONA IN ITALIA

Come possiamo attirare i giovani non solo al seggio, ma anche a partecipare attivamente al governo del Belpaese? Come vincere il pregiudizio che tutti i politici sono corrotti e la politica fa schifo? In queste chiacchierate con la figlia quasi diciottenne, un padre, appassionato di politica, spiega con semplicità arcani meccanismi e delicati equilibri di quest’arte cosi bistrattata, ma indispensabile all’uomo, che per natura è animale politico. Uno scambio profondo, ma al tempo stesso molto divertente, per far prendere coscienza a chi veramente rappresenta non solo il futuro, ma anche la grande e vera forza dell’Italia: i giovani.

WORDS FOR WHEN YOU ARE LOST FOR WORDS.

You'll never be lost for words after reading this book whatever your age. This is a collection of original, sharp and at times cruel quotes, remarks and utterances that, hopefully, when you’ll think ‘I ignored some terrible advice and made some excellent mistakes.’ will provide the necessary wisdom. They are a clever mix of witty, oh-so-true and downright deep-thinking aphorisms and truisms to titillate the heart and provoke the mind. This is an absolute "must have" for amusing friends, impressing anyone during a speech, or just selfishly reading in the evening before switching off the lights. Or read it on the loo:‘Learning invaluable skills makes you worth it’. ‘Black and white is good for the grey matter’ is as true for this book as a black and white movie, while saying ‘Send your lips to a new address, I’ve moved’ can effectively communicate the incommunicable. So remember, ‘Intimacy is lost at the first fart’ is good practical advice and that in any case ‘Great love always starts with a threat: I want to be with you forever.’

THE SECRETS OF BEAUTIFUL STEREO CINEMATOGRAPHY

Whether magic like Hugo, incredible like Avatar or immersive like Life of Pi, 3-D films show us a world that engages and envelops the viewer like nothing else. Recent film production has rejuvenated this often mis-sold genre, and its technique has been remastered thanks to the advent of digital cameras. This book is about the possibilities of stereo cinematography, and how it can be approached simply and beautifully, created in a practical no-nonsense way. It begins with an overview of stereo cinematography, examining its past, present and future, and looks at how the genre has changed over time and where it is going next. The reader is then introduced to trade secrets that range from set design to editing, from operating to lighting by an award winning cinematographer like Franz Pagot, with a bonus chapter on 3-D sound design by Oscar winner (Slumdog Millionaire) Resul Pookutty. Beautifully illustrated by the author with drawings and photos from real life film sets, with simple tutorials including how to shoot steadicam in 3-D and how to train your eye to recognise as well as produce beautiful images, not only in stereo. This book shows you that being a cinematographer is about preparation not just talent and luck. Are any secrets revealed like the subtitle promises? Yes, and you will not be disappointed. Beautiful cinematography requires inspiration and that is why this book is indispensable, reassuringly knowing that all proceeds will go to The Meyer Children's Hospital (Florence) and to the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (London).
