Young collection: my pavilion for antique and rare book at the 23rd International Book Fair in Turin

23rd International Book Fair in Turin

Umberto Eco and the philosopher Maurizio Ferraris with the semiologist Patrizia Violi, talk of “the delirium of listing”, the vortex of the cataloguing of what exists, with which humanity attempts to exorcise the damage of time and the limits of its own mnemonic abilities, but also of the need for oblivion. The meeting is entitled The future of memory.

In this photo, Umberto Eco and the culture secretary of state of the San Marino Republic Romeo Morri, outside my pavilion: the Young ‘cube’, a black cube so named because totally black inside and with a dim light lamps that light ONLY the books exposed.

In 2010 the Library of the University di San Marino showed at the International Book Fair in Turin, Italy, the most precious volumes from the Young collection, the richest collection of opuses on memory and mnemotechnics in the world. The Young Collection is conserved in San Marino. It includes books from the XV to the XIX century as well as 11 incunabula, almost 2000 monographs from a posterior time, 2000 articles, 500 pieces of graphics and memorabilia, and other materials connected to memory and memorization.

Tanto&Buono e Pulito&Giusto: torneremo a mangiare in treno?

E’ la sfida più calda dell’estate quella scoppiata tra i fornelli di Trenitalia. Sconfitto nella gara d’appalto , il Gruppo Cremonini non vuole lasciare il posto ai vincitori, i francesi di Accor, e ha ordinato ai suoi addetti di barricarsi in cucina in attesa che il TAR si pronunci sul ricorso. E per ostacolare la nuova gestione fa salire sui treni perfino i dirigenti di Chef Express. “Spiace – dicono – dover abbandonare in modo così brusco un servizio gestito per quasi vent’anni”, ma Trenitalia ha rifiutato il subentro morbido. Intanto il braccio italiano di Accor, la società Tanto&Buono, ha già pronti menù e listini (pdf) che promettono una svolta gourmand. Niente cucina francese ma “prodotti locali di prima qualità per piatti dieteticamente equilibrati e sani”. Apertura di credito concessa per la collaborazione con Slow Food, non solo consulente, ma ideatore menù “a tema” (?). Tra le offerte della Tanto&Buono anche piatti per musulmani (senza carne di maiale) e ricette per la clientela vegetariana e vegana.

Non che far meglio di Chef Express sia un’impresa, ma cosa pensate dell’accordo Slow Food-Tanto&Buono? Finirà finalmente l’incubo del servizio sgarbato, della pasta collosa, degli arrosti sudati?

Two of my students are among the winners of the Bombardier YouRail design competition

Federica Mucci and Roberto Tino are among the winners (4th-10th Prize) whit their Railway Hotel Car. Many compliments, and special thanks to Mr. Evaristo Primcipe !!!


ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE WINNERS

”An innovative design for long and over- night rail travels!„

Chris Antonopoulos (Vice President Sales, Bombardier Transportation)

Jury statement
Railway Hotel Car shows us that trains and comfortable hotels can be easily combined to an innovative design especially attractive for long and over-night rail travelers. The duplex concept of a two storey apartment is a very interesting re-use of serviceable rail vehicles. Sensitive to the recycling of used train cars, the designer proposed a simple but unique “Nomadic Hotel” concept with private and compact, yet “open feel” spaces. Although the sleeping quarters lost some ground to the increasingly fast pace commuting flights between distant cities, this approach could suggest a new traveling fashion promoting the discovery of various cities in few defined stops, in a similar approach as the cruise boats touring the seas… An idea with great potential.
