LET'S FRESHEN UP THE THREAD...


Sacred Mountain of Varallo - Varallo Sesia

The Sacred Mountain of Varallo (Italian: Sacro Monte di Varallo) is the oldest of the Italian and foreign constructions of its kind. It was founded in 1491, by friar Bernardino Caimi of the Ordine dei Minori Osservanti di San Francesco. The Sacro Monte was built on a rocky foundation, positioned on the slopes of Monte Tre Croci (Mount of three crosses), on the left-hand side of the river Sesia, where it leaves Val Mastallone (Piedmont, northern Italy). This natural terrace (600m) soars above the historic centre of Varallo (450m).
The Sacro Monte at Varallo comprises the minor basilica and 45 chapels, either isolated or inserted into the large monumental complexes Nazareth, Bethlehem, Pilate’s house, Calvary, Sepulchre and Parella’s house – populated by more than 800 life size painted statues, in wood and terracotta, that dramatically illustrate the life, passion, death and resurrection of Christ. These interiors are vividly decorated with fresco paintings.
Beginning with Adam and Eve or Original Sin, they narrate the story of Christ, from the Annunciation until his arrival in Bethlehem. The second zone, preceded by the Porta Aurea, is located on the summit, and is built up of palazzi and elaborate porticos, built around the two squares; piazza dei Tribunali (piazza civica) and piazza del Tempio (piazza religiosa). The aim here, was to represent the city of Jerusalem; it does indeed have a city feel about it. The chapels narrate the events of Christ's life inside and around the walls of Jerusalem; here are The Last Supper, The Burial, The Resurrection of Christ and The Assumption of the Madonna, to which the basilica is also dedicated. The urban character of this Sacro Monte clearly distinguishes it from the others.

Thank You Everybody ! ! !

Now a new about a master of the Baroque, Filippo Juvarra!

Unfortunatly the article is in italian...

"Torino riscopre la casa di Juvarra"
"Turin discovers Juvarra's house"

[IMG]http://i47.************/65o5th.jpg[/IMG]

Quel giorno del 1932, quale fosse di preciso non si sa, squadre di operai si riunirono all’alba in via Piave, angolo via San Domenico. Con picconi e pale, forse anche con una benna armata di pesante boccia in ghisa basculante, avrebbero abbattuto due edifici, vecchi un paio di secoli, apparentati da un giardino, con resti di terrazze pergolate. Al posto ne avrebbero eretto uno nuovo.

È quello tutt’ora esistente, in severo stile Decò.
Quegli uomini sapevano che avrebbero distrutto la sede del dismesso commissariato di Polizia «Moncenisio», aperto nel 1880. Gli immobili erano stati ceduti a privati nel 1928. Dal 1783, avevano ospitato l’Istituto Figlie dei Militari, subentrato al «carcere correttivo femminile», pia opera qui fondata nel 1765 dalla Compagnia di San Paolo.. Ma nessuno ricordava più la storia precedente. Nessuno si rendeva conto che sarebbero stati abbattuti la casa e lo studio di uno dei geni dell’architettura barocca europea: Filippo Juvarra, artefice di Superga e Palazzo Madama e dal 1728 anche della propria abitazione.

Ora, a oltre 80 anni da quella distruzione, Torino può recuperare coscienza di quello che perse. «Casa Juvarra» riappare in uno spettacolare plastico, realizzato in base ai disegni originali, grazie all’architetto torinese Gianfranco Gritella, massimo esperto di Juvarra.
Lo ripropone con altri 15 plastici di monumenti della Torino scomparsa , dalla Bastita dei Cappuccini alla Torre civica, fino al ponte sul Po abbattuto da Napoleone. Diverranno oggetto della mostra «Il Re e l’Architetto». Gritella la curerà con Marco Carassi, all’Archivio di Stato dal 1 marzo a fine aprile. Documenteranno quale Capitale fosse Torino tre secoli fa, quando il trattato di Utrecht l’11 aprile 1713 concesse ai Savoia la dignità regale. A quel tempo Juvarra era una celebrità. Re Vittorio Amedeo II era fiero di averlo a corte. Per ringraziarlo dei suoi servigi nel 1728 gli donò 1630 metri quadri di terreno nell’ «isola San Fedele», fra le odierne vie Santa Chiara, dei Quartieri, Piave e San Domenico. Contratto con il Comune un mutuo da 8 mila lire, Juvarra vi costruì due edifici di tre piani, uniti da un giardino quadrato. Nel primo edificio, con ingresso padronale da via San Domenico, collocò il proprio studio, in sette ambienti del primo piano. Al piano terra vi erano invece le cucine, le scuderie e i servizi. L’ultimo piano accolse locali da affittare.

Quale abitazione Juvarra volle il secondo edificio, a pianta trapezoidale, con ingresso al fondo del giardino. Al piano rialzato un’ elegante scala dava accesso a un salone centrale, dal quale si diramavano dieci camere. Il complesso trovava luminosa unità architettonica grazie alle facciate, scandite da doppie lesene, alternate da medaglioni a bassorilievo. Erano la traduzione barocca delle linee palladiane che Juvarra aveva studiato in Inghilterra nel 1719.
In questa casa l’architetto visse fino al 1735, quando fu chiamato a Madrid. Prima di partire redasse testamento a favore del fratello Francesco, orafo romano. Nel nominarlo erede Filippo specificava gli arredi della casa torinese, compresi 300 quadri che aveva collezionato. Erano bozzetti di opere che aveva incaricato di dipingere per Superga, la Reggia di Venaria, il Castello di Rivoli e il Palazzo Reale di Torino, firmate da artisti quali Francesco Trevisani, Sebastiano Ricci, Giovanni Paolo Pannini e Sebastiano Conca, più alcuni paesaggi, dipinti da Gaspar Van Wittel. Alcuni sono ricomparsi sul mercato antiquario.

Lo ha accertato la storica Karin Wolfe della «British School at Rome», che ha rinvenuto l’inventario della casa di Francesco Juvarra a Roma. Qui giunsero i mobili e la quadreria di Filippo. Il resto degliaveri fu disperso. La casa di Torino venne acquistata dai Savoia. Poi dal 1743 passò al direttore della Reggia di Venaria, Venanzio Salterio. La frazionò per affittarne i locali. Ma, quando nel 1749 la cedette alla Compagnia di San Paolo, l’atto notarile la definì «Palazzo Salterio». E così venne indicata per tutto l’Ottocento, ormai ignaro di chi l’aveva costruita. Fu la denominazione che la condannò alla distruzione.

Is there any gradation or something else between those cities divided into two groups in red and yellow dots?

No, there isn't a specific meaning! I think the yellow ones are the most recognizable cities.

Castle of Rivoli

With its unusual structure standing out on the moraine hill forming an amphitheatre overlooking Rivoli and Avigliana, the Castle of Rivoli is one of the most important symbols of the Savoy dynasty and an integral part of a design that since the late 16th century had led to the realisation of the so-called Corona di Delizie (‘Crown of Delights’), constituting symbols and celebrations of absolute power. The complex comprises two structures: the Castle with its present 18th-century appearance, and the Manica Lunga opposite, built in the 17th century and planned as the paintings gallery of Duke Charles Emmanuel I. The two buildings are separated by the atrium, an open-air space dominated by the unfinished walls of the Castle and of the Manica Lunga. In the middle there are the columns and pillars of the imposing Juvarra’s project. The two buildings from two different periods have been restored stressing their different nature.

The palm trees that are adapted to the climate of Northern Italy, where the minimum temperature may drop below -10 ° C, are not few.
Just for information, the most suitable species are the Chamaerops cerifera, the Cordyline, the Trachycarpus fortunei, the Thritrinax campestris and Washingtonia filifera.
