Enfance, 2015

Enfance, by Giulio Lacchini and Giancarlo Norese, Sputnik Editions, Bratislava 2015
A double artist’s book about childhood

Enfance was born to remember us the faculty of “bringing visions into focus with our eyes shut”, as we did in a remote time, still fruitful and alive, when thinking in terms of images was more spontaneous.

It was a “possible pedagogy of the imagination that would accustom us to control our own inner vision without suffocating it or letting it fall (…) into confused, ephemeral daydreams, but would enable the images to crystallize into a well-defined, memorable, and self-sufficient form, the icastic form.”
(Excerpts from Italo Calvino, Six Memos for the Next Millennium: Visibility, 1985–1986).

Enfance, by Giulio Lacchini and Giancarlo Norese, Sputnik Editions, Bratislava 2015
Un doppio libro sull’infanzia

Enfance è nato per mettere a fuoco “visioni a occhi chiusi” da un periodo passato, ancora vivo e fecondo, quando pensare per immagini era più spontaneo.

È stata, per noi, una possibilità pedagogica dell’immaginazione, abituando “la nostra visione interiore a muoversi senza essere soffocata e senza lasciarla cadere in un confuso fantasticare, permettendo che le immagini si cristallizzassero in forme definite, autosufficienti e icastiche.”
(Tratto liberamente da Italo Calvino, Visibilità, Lezioni americane, 1985/1986).
