Italia tund Eurovizionin

Fusha muzikore e betejës këtë vit ishte një mozaik i vërtetë. Nga finlandezët që gjithmonë luajnë fort, tek një këngëtare emocionale franceze, deri tek Islandezët e veçantë dhe shumë shokues. Por ishin katër të rinjtë nga Roma, që tronditën konkursin e këngës Eurovision 2021, duke deklaruar një fitore për Italinë për herë të tretë në […]

The singular story of the month: Chi va piano va sano

On the one hand, instantaneity is sometimes seen as a way of life. On the other hand, some people decide to go off the beaten track and decide to act following a more slow-living pace.

Pompeii

79 CE, The volcano of Vesuvius erupts, stones and ashes are thrown into the air, raining on the terrified people in the cities of Herculaneum, Stabia and Pompeii.

The odd world of Giuseppe Arcimboldo

The Four Seasons pictured as faces built of fruits and vegetables, mushrooms, flowers and trees. The embodiment of the Earth, composed of animals, mixed together and existing in parallel herbivores and carnivores.

Креативното пишување може да го промени општеството

Може ли креативното пишување да го спаси светот? Можеме ли преку новелите, драмите, сказните, сториите, личните перфоманси, работилниците, проектите, медиумите, но и преку обичните разговори со кафе, чај или пиво да се бориме против моќниот непријател? Дали стереотипите, предрасудите и дискриминацијата се победливи со малку поголема свесност, волја и напор од сите нас? Една седмица […]
