Vittorio Mazzucconi
THE CITY IN THE IMAGINE AND LIKENESS OF MAN
Hoepli, Milan 1967
511 pages, 213 illustrations, bound.

€ 38,00 (°)

Synopsis

The book is made up of two parts. The first is a city reading on different planes: its archetypes (the natural or organic, as seen in the medieval city, and the rational one, like the Roman city); its history, until the crisis of our time; its functions, similar to those of the human body; its soul. Facing a future that threatens a catastrophe makes problematic the very survival of the city, but the book imagines an ideal one and its foundation, outlining not its form but its soul more >

Synopsis

Since this precept has been written at the entrance to the Sanctuary of Delphi, the man has been questioning its meaning.

Registration of the Spring Seminar 2011

Series "Il Convivio"
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: The Self talking to the soul, 1992


Synopsis

The ordinary knowledge applied to the sciences and the whole of the culture of our times is the product of a reason that has not only become self-referential and no longer in dialogue with the soul but has been enslaved to matter. It produces the technology with which many useful things are made but often such as to threaten and finally deprive man of his humanity ... ... more >

CONSCIOUSNESS
Registration of the Autumn Seminar 2011
"Il Luogo della Cascata"Milan 2017 (in progress)
Series "Il Convivio"
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Ellade, 1984

Synopsis

What is consciousness? A purely sensory fact or something that goes beyond, in the sphere of the soul? We know then that there are different levels of consciousness, from that of less developed animals or even of inanimated matter to that of human consciousness, but if we open a soul survey, is there a further stage we can guess? ... more >

THE BODY AND THE SOUL
Registration of the Autumn Seminar 2012
"Il Luogo della Cascata", Milan 2017 (in progress)
Series "Il Convivio"
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: The Dream, 1994


Synopsis

In all the previous seminars, we have talked a lot about the soul, but does it make sense today, to talk about the soul? In the secular culture, or in the materialism of our time, the soul is denied as God is denied. Let's then talk about the body, of which we have never diminished the importance: just remember the seminary and the book ARTE E PSICHE to see that the way of the soul is accomplished through eros, that is bodily love, with all its strength ... more >

158 pages
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Birth, 1976


€ 14,00 (°)

Synopsis

Does it make sense to distinguish between essence and existence? A distinction that will appear unfounded to those who do not believe there is a being, just as he thinks there is no soul or God. This threefold denial shows us at least that being, soul, and God are the same, even though we live their equivalent only in the existence, in the body, and in matter ... more >

Il Luogo della Cascata, Milan 2014

197 pages, with 8 illustrations and 50 plates
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: The Angel, 1999


€ 20,00 (°)

Synopsis

The Journey is an autobiography, but it goes beyond the story of a life, rich and interesting, to ask the questions that are in the heart of each of us as to the meaning of life: where we come from, where we go, and above all: " who we are? That's why there is an opening to a much wider theme than that of the author's personal life, and the title of the book is not my "journey," but the journey of anyone who tries to follow the golden precept "Know Thyself." ... more >

112 pages, 0 illustrations
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: La Sfinge, 1999

€ 15,00 (°)

Synopsis

After writing "THE JOURNEY", the idea of a "Return” was spontaneously born in the author, even though it was not clear at first what return would be: not sure on the memories of a life already mentioned in the first book. Perhaps those of a previous life, or the return on life in a later incarnation? Or, through these and other countless stages, the long path of return to the indestructible origin, destiny and sense of everything? ... more >

142 pages, 9 illustrations
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Il Regno, 2004

€ 15,00 (°)

Synopsis

To the mirror, or to the image that is reflected there, is usually associated an idea of ephemeral appearance, illusion, or vanity. In fact, it has a fundamental function in the evolution of man, as seen in the child when he recognizes his image in the mirror, while animals, except for a type of baboon, are unable to do so ... more >

120 pages, 7 illustrations
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Il Sé e la persona, 1999 (part.)

€ 15,00 (°)

Synopsis

It is an inner conversation with which, beyond the little ego, one is addressing himself to the Self, the much higher spiritual being who is precisely the secret friend that manifests himself in our center. The perception of an orientation which thefore is born is precisely that towards this being and the vision that it opens up, with the knowledge and the new consciousness of how to act in the world ... more >

€ 15,00 (°)

Synopsis

The source, the river that springs, the sea to which it comes, its evaporation in the sky, the rain that descends on the ground, feeding a new spring: this is the cycle of water and, in its image, that of everything else. In the book it is also read as the equally cyclical path of our life, from the birth with which it begins, to the river of the following existence, to the sea we come ... more >

Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Il Corpo e l'anima, 1990

€ 15,00 (°)

Synopsis

While the former book, the Secret Friend, was a dialogue with itself, though on a much higher level than that of the little ego - was a dialogue with the Self - this is a dialogue with death, born of an experience in which it appeared close. But what do you encounter in this situation? The Self itself, if our soul has gained its awareness and is able to recognize it, as the Tibetans ... more >

Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: Spirale, 2014

€ 18,00 (°)

Synopsis

The book begins with a small journey and the thoughts that come to mind in the author, while sitting on the train. They may touch on anything but the old traveler, who is not far from the end of life, is led to reflect on the meaning of this and his own identity: "Who am I?" He asks. The visit to Pompeii, to which he is directed, puts him in front of a death show - the end of the ancient city and, more generally, of every human enterprise ... more >

THE EGG
„Il Luogo della Cascata“, Milano 2017
Series "Orientarsi"
Isbn 9788894311303, e-book 9788894311327
140 pages, with 8 illustrations
Cover image Vittorio Mazzucconi: The Eden garden (detail), 1994-1999

€ 18,00 (°)

Synopsis

The Mazzucconi's books are a continuous meditation on man: he asks himself without respite "Who am I?" Many deep reflections are therefore born on the person, on the soul, on our true self and on the path to follow to discover it and not on the contrary to deny it with the exaltation of the false ego, to which our time is dedicated.
In an imaginary but lively dialogue with Spinoza, which the author confidently calls Benedict, and with Descartes, it emerges that the cause of this deviation and the tragedies that followed it is precisely the supremacy of the reason that they have inaugurated, to the detriment of the soul values. The "true good" that Spinoza pursued was purely an intellectual one, thus replacing the aspiration to the eternal that it implies with the rationalist mirage. ... more >

MYSTERIUM CONJUNCTIONIS
Galleria Artestudio, Milan 1994
With the contribution of Paolo Levi
17 paintings on canvas and 6 on paper

€ 10,00 (°)

Synopsis

The presence of the divine lives in these events of Love by Vittorio Mazzucconi. We know well that Eros is the son of the deity, but between the legends of Olympus and the songs of the Old Testament, in truth, I do not know well... The jew James Hilmann, of post-Jungian faith, writes precisely "If I were religious I would be polytheist". Syncretism makes our spirit light, but, as we know, it does not give it too many gifts of light.
Vittorio Mazzucconi is a child of his time, as for his poetic and pictorial writing. He is familiar with a chromaticity like that of Chagal, a pure, sinuous, harmonious and sensual line that makes us think of Matisse, and has the strength of Picasso's message. Instead, the spirit of Mazzucconi is different. I capture it as very ancient. It comes from far away. In every painting - only apparently has the breath of autobiography - he tends to raise the event, as a song suffered and inhaled rises towards the sky, to probe the unknowable. ... more >

Two central elements of Mazzucconi's work, the "refounding" of the city, and the "reversal" of current values in the name of a vision that is, to the limit, mystic, find expression in the idea of creating a large pyramid overturned on the Palatine, which therefore touches only with its summit the illustrious archeological site. It is meant to celebrate both the ancient foundation and the empire that followed the foundation of a future open to a new civilization, following the same intentions of the projects for Milan and Florence
