Ventario. Le Scale dei Venti
22 x 29 cm - 22,90€
THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED ATLAS TO DISCOVER THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WIND
Light breezes, overwhelming gusts of wind, soft strokes or icy forces: the wind is a breath that infuses life into seas, fields and tree-lined avenues. Navigation and sport depend on winds but also the town planning of metropolis and agricultural cultivations. The relationship between winds and the mankind has deep origins in the mythology and it is based on spatial orientation, compasses and weathercocks. This is how the mankind begins to know winds: he distinguishes them, he learns to recognise them and finally he calls them by name.
From the causes that originate the wind motion to the distinction made by the wind rose: a journey to make good progress through works of art, ancient legends and scientific curiosities to get to know the air that breathes over our heads every day, to continue our daily journey with it.
Written in collaboration with University of Genova – Department of Civil, Chemical and Environmental Engineering
