ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Palazzi e castelli, ville e abbazie, chiese e complessi archeologici: ci sono "meraviglie" che raccontano storie straordinarie e sono il punto di riferimento indispensabile di città e culture. L'aspetto caratteristico dell'arte italiana consiste nella sua capillare diffusione sul territorio, una presenza fitta, costante, sempre affascinante: ma questa rete di tesori si annoda intorno ad alcuni straordinari monumenti-simbolo, vere e proprie "icone" universali, conosciute e amate in tutto il mondo. In questo volume presentiamo alcuni dei complessi architettonici, archeologici e artistici più celebri d'Italia, per ritrovare la loro centralità nel formarsi di una coscienza culturale e civile e per godere ancora una volta della loro bellezza. Edifici e capolavori inconfondibili che tuttavia vengono proposti in un modo nuovo, inseriti nel contesto storico e urbanistico di cui fanno parte, in una trama di significati artistici, sociali e umani. Un grande omaggio all'eterna bellezza delle grandi "meraviglie" italiane che da secoli si offrono ai visitatori, per un messaggio di serena bellezza e di profonda umanità.
