Architettura Iranica dagli Achemenidi ai Sasanidi

GULLINI G., 1964, Architettura Iranica dagli Achemenidi ai Sasanidi. Il “Palazzo” di Kuh-i Kwagia (Seistan), Torino, Giulio Einaudi Editore, pp. 497, figure colori e b/n nel testo.

The volume illustrates the research carried out in the architectural compound of Kuh-i Khwaja, in Iranian Sistan, which attest to the diffusion of the common Achaemenian culture also in the following periods. In particular, the application of the principles of the vaults without building supports in coherence with the universal use of the mud brick; and the precedence of the eastern regions of Iran in the invention of a central layout that the Sasanian architecture will bring to meet with the properly Roman architectural tradition. The analysis is supported by the discussion of several other monuments showing very original solutions connected with the influence of a Hellenistic architectural language.

Ai piedi dell'Ararat

INVERNIZZI A., 1998, Ai piedi dell'Ararat. Artaxata e l'Armenia ellenistico-romana (Fondo Parini Chirio), Firenze, Le Lettere, p. XXIX-166.

The historic and cultural centrality of Armenia between the Mediterranean and Asia in the Hellenistic and Roman periods is clearly stressed by the contributions to this volume, which deal with a number of the most characteristic aspects of the culture of Armenia and bring into the foreground the results of the excavations at Artaxata, one of the main Armenian capitals of the period.

The volume contains the detailed study of the small metal sculptures found in the Square House at Old Nisa in Parthia (now in Turkmenistan) by the Soviet Expedition in the years after World War II. These objects point to an exceptionally wide range of iconographic and stylistic influences, from the Hellenistic culture to that of the Iranian countries and the world of the Eurasiatic steppes. They also offer precious evidence to the religious sentiments and the royal concepts of the Arsacids.

Viaggio e Giornale per parte dell’Asia

INVERNIZZI A. (a c. di), 2005, AMBROGIO BEMBO, Viaggio e Giornale per parte dell’Asia (1671-1675), Cesmeo, Torino.

The young Venetian noble Ambrogio Bembo, who travelled in Syria, Mesopotamia, Iran and India, wrote a travel report the manuscript of which is preserved in the James Ford Bell Library of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Bembo’s report is important for his impressions and descriptions of European colonial life in those regions, and particularly for his most careful description of the Bisutun and Taq-i Bustran antiquities. The volume contains the text, edited with rich notes and comments, and 80 plates with the views by Joseph Guillaume Grelot, especially important for the archaeological subjects.

The road of Baghdad

Comic book edited by Mirko Furlanetto and illustrated by Laura de Stefani, La Tipografica, Pordenone, 2018.

This comic book, translated into Arabic, is mainly directed at the Iraqi younger generation and aims at underlining the extraordinary value of the local archaeological heritage as well as the primary role of the Museum of Baghdad in preserving and protecting it. This project is in line with the fulfilment of the educational objectives promoted by the CRAST along with the Universities of Turin and Bologna within the framework of the EDUU European Project (Education and Cultural Heritage Enhancement for Social Cohesion in Iraq), a project oriented at bringing the new generations closer to the Iraqi historical and archaeological heritage. After twelve years during which the museum was closed to the public, this comic book, along with the local initiatives, represents a useful tool to display the Iraqi cultural heritage and to narrate its story to the young audience.


L'Iraq Museum di Baghdad. Gli interventi italiani per la riqualificazione di un patrimonio dell'umanità

C. Lippolis, S. de Martino, R. Parapetti, G. Capri - Apice libri, Firenze, 2016

The Iraq Museum of Baghdad, with its extraordinary collections of inestimable value, provides a unique window to the past of Mesopotamia while giving an insight on the social, cultural and artistic history and evolution of the mankind. Following the dramatic looting of the Iraq Museum in 2003, and after being closed to the public for many years, the Iraqi authorities reopened the museum in 2015 also thanks to the constant cooperation from the Italian side. This reopening sent an important message in a time when the Iraqi archaeological and artistic heritage was extremely in danger. The Italian interventions involved the redevelopment and spatial reorganization of some of the most important exhibition areas in order to improve their accessibility and the user experience in the museum. This volume well illustrates the constant and unfaltering efforts made by the Italian institutions (MAECI, Italian Embassy in Iraq, CRAST) to promote the Iraqi heritage. As a scientific publication it presents, also through numerous images, the elaboration of the project, the stages of planning and the final set-up but, at the same time, it aims at making the extraordinary artistic and archaeological heritage displayed at the Museum of Baghdad more accessible to a non-specialist audience.
