Recensione a Anilda Ibrahimi, "Non c’è dolcezza", Torino, Einaudi, 2012.

Silvia Camilotti
Si propone una recensione del romanzo "Non c'è dolcezza" (Einaudi 2012) di Anilda Ibrahimi, scrittrice di origine albanese, residente in Italia e autrice in lingua italiana. Nei suoi precedenti romanzi – "Rosso come una sposa" (Einaudi 2008) e "L'amore e gli stracci del tempo" (Einaudi 2009) – l'autrice pone l'attenzione sul conflitto balcanico e sulla storia albanese. Uno dei temi privilegiati nella sua scrittura è la condizione femminile nel suo paese natale: nei suoi romanzi...

Sulla soglia: la narrativa di Maria Messina

Maria Serena Sapegno
L’articolo propone un attraversamento della narrativa di Maria Messina a partire dalla sua collocazione nel processo di quella rapida modernizzazione della società italiana che agli inizi del Novecento porta sulla scena nuovi soggetti potenziali. L’attenzione della scrittrice sembra essere focalizzata proprio sulla crisi del sistema patriarcale e sul contraddittorio venire a coscienza di diversi soggetti, in modo particolare di quello femminile. Un percorso doloroso e raramente coronato da successo, alla fine del quale c’è spesso...

«Deh, non opinate, o Signora, così spregevolmente di noi»: l’Italia illustrata dalle italiane

Tatiana Crivelli
This article discusses the symbolic values assigned to Italian women writers in the historical age that precedes national unification. At the beginning of 19th century, aiming at its Risorgimento, Italy shaped its own identity. Establishing a cultural genealogy of its women, the nation-to-be finds a way to shed light on the persistence of an erudite stream rooted in the glorious tradition of the “roman mothers”, as well as to define an image of itself as...

Regmentation: A New View of Image Segmentation and Registration

Marius Erdt, Georgios Sakas & Sebastian Steger
Image segmentation and registration have been the two major areas of research in the medical imaging community for decades and still are. In the context of radiation oncology, segmentation and registration methods are widely used for target structure definition such as prostate or head and neck lymph node areas. In the past two years, 45% of all articles published in the most important medical imaging journals and conferences have presented either segmentation or registration methods....

Goliarda Sapienza’s Eccentric Interruptions: Multiple selves, gender ambiguities and disrupted desires

Charlotte Ross
This article considers the work of Goliarda Sapienza (1924-1996), which is currently undergoing a renaissance: early texts are being republished, posthumous works have appeared in print, and she is beginning to attract sustained critical attention for the first time. With reference to several texts, most notably "Lettera aperta", "Io Jean Gabin", "Il filo di mezzogiorno", "L’arte della gioia" and "Le certezze del dubbio", I show how her work challenges a series of received norms and...

Luigia Codemo: appunti per una biografia intellettuale

Adriana Chemello
La narrativa di Luigia Codemo ha una filiazione diretta dal romanzo storico manzoniano, da cui mutua l’interesse per le «genti meccaniche e di piccolo affare», ma attinge anche al vasto repertorio delle forme brevi, degli exempla, dei racconti morali, delle “storie vere” che sembrano riprese dalle colonne della «Gazzetta Veneta» di Gozzi, delle goldoniane chiacchiere da campiello, senza trascurare le storie sentimentali e romantiche dei racconti d’appendice. La cifra della sua scrittura sta in questa...

St. Gallen, Stiftsbibliothek, Cod. Sang. 437 : Lectionary for the Matins and antiphonary

The antiphonary bears the title In nomine domini incipiunt antiphone secundum morem Marbacensis ecclesie. Nevertheless, this is probably not a manuscript from the reformed monastery of Marbach in Alsace. Based on the offices, which indicate a connection with St. Gall, it must rather be assumed that the manuscript originated in the...
