Roma e lo Stato della Chiesa costituiscono un caso unico nella storia d'Europa, di principato religioso e secolare al tempo stesso.

Splendeur et Magie des Sultans

D’esclaves à sultans, l’histoire des Mamelouks est celle d’une prodigieuse montée en puissance, une épopée digne des plus excitants romans d’aventure.

Barock & Rokoko (Bayern Süd)

Baroque & Rococo

Die Sinne schwelgen zu lassen war das Ziel der barocken Kunst. Mit Hilfe prunkvollster Interieurs wurde in Kirchen und Schlössern jedermann die Herrlichkeit göttlicher und weltlicher Ordnung vor Augen geführt. Und welches Land wäre besser dazu geeignet, den barocken Rausch der Sinne nachzuerleben, als Bayern, das wie kein zweites so nachhaltig durch die Barockzeit geprägt wurde, man ...

الأمويون

نشأة الفن الإسلامي

Far from abolishing the freedom of local cults and undermining existing town plans, The Umayyads acknowledged the aesthetic language already in place on their arrival in Jordan (661), and re-invented its forms with an astonishing freedom of expression. Brief as their hegemony was (less than 90 years) the role of the Umayyad caliphs remains crucial in the history of Islam. By establishing ...

Il Gotico / Tirolo

Un profondo legame unisce il Tirolo allo stile gotico: il singolare corrispondere della nascita di questa regione come entità politica nel corso del XIII secolo con l'affermarsi in campo artistico delle nuove forme slanciate che suggeriscono il movimento, introdotte dal gotico. Il nuovo stile si radica con realizzazioni artistiche che non mancano di caratterizzazioni locali rispetto al  ...

I dieci percorsi della  ...

Andalusian Morocco

A Discovery in living art

As early as the beginning of the eighth century, having just reached this extreme territory of the Maghreb, Moroccan Islam started to cast its eye to the other side of the Straits of Gibraltar and shortly after set foot on the Iberian Peninsula. From that time on, and for a further eight centuries the fate of both areas would be inseparable, and it is this real Hispanic-Maghreb culture t ...

L'eredità degli emirati

L'apogeo del regno di Solimano ha messo in ombra per molto tempo i precedenti sconvolgimenti avvenuti in Anatolia che poi hanno portato alla fondazione dell'impero. Fra le prime dinastie di emiri turchi che hanno approfittato del declino dell'impero bizantino per stabilirsi sul suolo della penisola è sicuramente quella ottomana che avrà l'esito più celebre, ma la supremazia architetto ...
