Orchids of Sardinia
This photographic volume includes beautiful photographs of many of the species found in Sardinia, immortalized in all their sumptuousness. An exciting colour journey that captures the character and the essence of the botanical wonders, sometimes soft, sometimes lively and impetuous, as only they can be, the queens of springtime. Spectacular colours, seductive shapes: the spontaneous orchids of Sardinia in a single photographic volume of great value: unmissable images of the wonders of the Mediterranean botanical heritage.
The essence of Mediterranean
A photographic book that narrates the most beautiful Mediterranean island in its entirety: landscapes, archaeology, architecture, anthropology, ethnography and art. And then myths, customs, traditional festivals and crafts. A quiet unfolding of images to meditate, guided by the enlightening words of those who have already loved the island. Each image is accompanied and enriched by a "caption" taken from the books of Sardinian authors or those authors who have praised the beauties of the island.
Photographs: Ileana Florescu, Ottavio Celestino, Simon d'Exéa, Claudio Abate
A SARDINIAN FROM MAINE
The creation of Petra Sarda
The catalogue of the exhibition dedicated to the ceramic works of Anne Milliken Franchetti – an American from Maine transplanted in the Sixties in the paradise of Capo Ceraso, Sardinia – follows a path in which autobiographical memory, poetry and artistic dimension merge. The volume testifies the main steps and ways that led the artist to realize her dream, with the foundation of the ceramic factory "Petra Sarda" in San Pantaleo (Olbia)
