“Strappare lungo i bordi”: Zerocalcare conquista Netflix

TORONTO – Il 17 novembre è uscita su Netflix “Strappare lungo i bordi”, la nuova serie animata del fumettista romano Zerocalcare (Michele Rech). Serie ‘di’ Zerocalcare in tutti i sensi: per quanto non siano da sottovalutare l’apporto dello studio di animazione “Movimenti” e di Bao Publishing (l’editore storico di Zero) e la meravigliosa colonna sonora del cantautore Giancane, Zerocalcare ha personalmente non solo scritto e diretto la serie, ma anche doppiato tutti i personaggi, con l’eccezione dell’Armadillo (la coscienza del protagonista) cui presta la voce un attore di razza come Valerio Mastandrea… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Se gli oggetti degli emigrati diventano poesia

TORONTO – Ospiti d’eccezione, venerdì scorso, nella redazione del Corriere Canadese in Bridgeland Avenue: le professoresse Anna Ciardullo Villapiana e Maria Stella ci hanno fatto visita, accompagnate da Franco Misuraca (Anna è candidata, con Franco, alle elezioni dei ComItEs nella Lista Civica Italiani in Canada), per illustrarci un interessante progetto dedicato agli Italiani immigrati in Canada.

Ma partiamo con le presentazioni… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>

Bangladeshi architect Marina’s success in Climate Change

As the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 just ended in a compromised deal in Glasgow in the United Kingdom, Bangladeshi architect Marina Tabassum, who won the 2021 prestigious Soane medal among the first architect from the global south for her design of Khudi Bari, a modular mobile house for the climate victims, appeared as ‘A £300 monsoon-busting home: the Bangladeshi architect fighting extreme weather’ in the Guardian newspaper on November 16.

In her words, Marina says, “As architects we have a responsibility to these people. The construction industry contributes half of all global emissions, but the people being affected by sea-level rise in the coastal areas have zero carbon footprint.”

Founding Marina Tabassum Architects in 2005, she embarked on a project called Bait ur Rouf mosque in northern Dhaka that gave her international prominence 11 years later for winning the Aga Khan award. Currently they are working in the Cox’s Bazar, home to 1.2 million Rohingya Muslims fled from ethnic persecution in neighboring Myanmar. Tabassum and her team have been designing food distribution outlets and women’s centres – for both the camp and its host community – aiming to create a more dignified experience than the usual tents for receiving handouts.

IPMA cada vez mais perto de si

(Revista Amar) Os IPMA (International Portuguese Music Awards) nasceram com o objetivo de celebrar e homenagear os artistas luso-descendentes e portugueses espalhados pelo mundo. David Saraiva e José Xavier (mais conhecido por Zack), são dois dos cofundadores e produtores que continuam a impulsionar o projeto que se formou depois de dois eventos de beneficência. Sobre a pandemia, para os cofundadores, nem tudo foi negativo e segundo David Saraiva até trouxe coisas positivas “porque (…) possibilitou um “intervalo” para que pudéssemos autoavaliar-nos…”. A reorganização forçada resultou em dois espetáculos virtuais – 2020 e 2021, respetivamente… Read More in Revista Amar >>>

Corot e Matisse cantori delle modelle

Le modelle di artista che dagli inizi del 1800 a Roma e successivamente con successo internazionale, a Parigi e poi a Londra, sono una pagina affascinante della Storia dell’Arte, di cui si scoprono continuamente aspetti e personaggi. Grazie a loro nacque nei primi anni del 1800 sia la parola ‘modella’ femminile, solo in Italiano, e sia il mestiere, la professione vera e propria, quella che poi un secolo più tardi diverrà la top model. E, quale cronaca, una di tali moderne top models, tra le più celebrate assieme a Naomi Campbell, è Linda Evangelista, oriunda ciociara canadese, da Pignataro Interamna… Read More in Corriere Canadese >>>
