[Genova] : Fondazione Renzo Piano, 
Résumé: Mi sono sempre chiesto se sono i genovesi ad aver costruito una città come Genova, o se al contrario è Genova ad aver costruito il carattere dei genovesi. Una città nata tra montagne che salgono subito molto ripide e un mare che diventa subito molto profondo. Lunga più di venti chilometri e talvolta stretta poche centinaia di metri. Una città nave, obbligata alla parsimonia e alla sobrietà. Da noi lo spazio è prezioso. I nostri vicoli sono la prova tangibile del nostro carattere: non siamo tirchi, siamo parsimoniosi, e non siamo chiusi. siamo silenziosi. Fernand Braudel la definì una città di grande potenza e di grande fragilità. Giorgio Caproni invece la chiamò “di ferro e aria", forgiata dal vento. Mi piace l’idea che il ponte somigli alla città. Non solo perché è fatto di ferro, ma perché e sobrio, robusto, e fa il passo lungo come la gamba.

Résumé: Nell'angusta atmosfera vittoriana di fine Ottocento irrompe uno straordinario scrittore capace di mettere sulla scena il teatro delle idee e dei problemi sociali. "L'importanza di chiamarsi Ernesto", considerato da molti il capolavoro di Oscar Wilde, debuttò trionfalmente a Londra il 14 febbraio del 1895, riuscendo a ottenere moltissime repliche in tutta l'Inghilterra. In questa "commedia frivola per persone serie" Wilde, raffinato e provocatorio come sempre, stravolge i canoni narrativi e usa un linguaggio diretto e ricco di rimandi a situazioni comiche e imbarazzanti. Ne risulta un arguto e pungente scorcio dell'aristocrazia inglese, un mondo dove la forza degli individui risiede in quello che dicono e non in quello che fanno, nel blasone e non nelle idee. Ernesto è l'uomo che tutte le dame - e non solo - vorrebbero avere. E per aggiudicarselo sarebbero disposte a tutto. Una commedia di costume, brillante e moderna in grado, ancora oggi, di far amare questo personaggio e il suo creatore.

Résumé: Libby always thought her life was well-ordered, charmed even: three gorgeous daughters, a husband who adores her, friends to see her through thick and thin. But lately, with one daughter in a constant fit of teenage sulks, a ten-year-old questioning everything in the universe and beyond, and a husband who seems to see her mainly as the manager of school runs, ironed shirts and a well-stocked fridge, motherhood is showing some of its distinctly uglier sides. But Libby soldiers on, taking her youngest to an environmental group to find answers to all those pesky universe questions, navigating egg-shells to confront her oldest about that tell-tale silver-foil packet of 21 tiny pills and cramming in some time for rekindling the spark in her marriage after the eight o'clock news. Until one day, she's had enough. She used to have more to talk about than the PTA and the price of apples at the supermarket; she used to have something to drive her life, a purpose behind things. And she wants that back - or at least some of it. So when she meets Daniel, attractive, passionate and engagingly spontaneous, she knows the turning point has come. But as domestic disaster and emotional calamity descend on the Blake household, Libby soon realizes that it's not simply a matter of starting all over again...
