Of nature in my home land…20th May 2012 (terremoto, earthquake, Erdbeben)

by felicitamodna82

Work in progress!!!! 20.05 first quakes/Erste Beben; 29.05 new big quakes after a week of afterquakes/neue großen Beben nach einer Woche Nachbeben!!!!!!! Updates/Aktualisierungen http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/ —-> terremoto. Help&Videos —>below/Hilfe&Videos—>unten

As many of you probably already know, an earthquake hit the Provinces of Modena and Ferrara and some Municipalities in Mantova, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Rovigo. The Northern districts of Modena are hardly hit. Wie viele von euch wahrscheinlich schon wissen, wurden die Provinzen Modena und Ferrara und einige Gemeinden in Mantua, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Rovigo von einem Erdbeben betroffen. Die nördlichen Bezirken in Modena sind stark betroffen.

When I travel home for a while, coming from Salzburg, I usually take the train. The German-Austrian EC München-Bologna crosses the Po river in Ostiglia and then enters my homeland in Mirandola, nevertheless travelling far away from the beautiful city of the Picos.  Finally the train crosses San Felice sul Panaro. Wide, open, fertile fields and the warm and beautiful centre of San Felice with the church and the castle used to be my welcome home. Not anymore, I guess. Wenn ich ein bisschen heim sein will, fahre ich  mit dem Zug ab Salzburg. Der DB-ÖBB EC München-Bologna überbruckt den Po-Fluss in Ostiglia und kommt dann in meine Heimat in Mirandola, obwohl er weit von der schönen Stadt der Pico fährt. Endlich durchfährt der Zug San Felice sul Panaro. Breite, offene, fruchtbare Felder und die warme und schöne Altstadt von San Felice mit der Kirche und dem Schloss waren in der Regel mein “Willkommen heim”. Nicht mehr, befürchte ich.

Thousands lost their home. Tausende haben ihr Daheim verloren. Migliaia hanno perso casa.

Industries, shops, farms are closed due to damages or even destructions and thus we are not able to work in order to pay for repairing or rebuilding using our own wages. Industrien, Geschäfte und Bauernhöfe sind aufgrund der Schaden oder sogar der Zerstörungen geschlossen und deswegen können wir nicht arbeiten, um das Geld zum renovieren oder wiederaufbauen zu verdienen.

A huge part of our cultural heritage is gone. Castles, towers, the church where the famous Humanist Pico della Mirandola’s parents were laid to rest are destroyed or damaged. Ein großer Teil unseres kulturellen Erbgutes ist verloren. Schlösser, Türme, die Kirche, in welcher die Eltern des berühmten Humanist Pico della Mirandola begraben wurde, sind zerstört oder beschädigt. (Update: Church/Kirche San Francesco destroyed/zerstört)http://www.linkiesta.it/chiesa-san-francesco-mirandola

A nice blog whose concept says: ” In a time of crisis and problems we believe that Italy can manage her way out of troubles by using her human and natural resources, the beauty of her territory, the richness of her products”. Great idea! It features many proposals from the damaged territories: http://sosblogger.wordpress.com/

3) Contact me!/Mich kontaktieren!

We are going to organise several initiatives (i.e. in Salzburg and surroundings) you can help with or make a small donation for you can afford. I am a simple girl from the Modenese people, so you won´t have to fear that your efforts get wasted in political tricks. Our idea is: make industries and shops work again, so that we can rebuild houses and start rebuilding monuments with our own efforts, then funding reconstruction of monuments. We want them as they used to be, or even better. Wir werden verschiedene Initiativen organisieren (z.B. in Salzburg und Umgebung), in welchen ihr helfen könnt oder für welche eine kleine Spende möglich ist, die keine finanzielle Belastung wird. Ich bin ein einfaches Mädchen aus dem modenesischen Volk, also muss man nicht befürchten, dass eure Bemühungen in politischen Spielen weggeschmissen werden. Unsere Idee ist: machten wir Industrien und Geschäfte wieder produktions- oder arbeitsfähig, so dass wir die Wiedererrichtung der Häuser und  teilweise der Monumente mit unseren Löhnen/Gehältern selber bezahlen können. Dann Wiedererrichtung der Monumente unterstützen. Wir wollen sie, wie sie früher waren, oder sogar besser!

I am able to work with several groups on location(I plan to travel home on the 19th June). Especially people living around Salzburg could comment here in order to get in touch with me/Ich kann mit verschiedenen Gruppen vom Ort aribeiten (Ich habe geplant, am 19. Juni heim zu fahren). Besonders Personen aus dem Raum Salzburg könnten hier kommentieren, um mit mir in Kontakt zu treten.

Retroactive history, political interest or just ignorance?

by felicitamodna82

This is fun…

As some of you may know, 2011 will be the 150. anniversary of Italy as a nation (though in an incomplete form, since the so-called Unità has been reached, revised and – well – contested during the 20th century…and although history and identity of Italy are still quite discussed or contested).

As part of celebrations, an exhibition has been organised. Title:

La bella Italia. Arte e identità delle città capitali

(beautiful Italy. Art and identity of capital cities)

http://www.italia150.it/ita/Esperienza-Italia/La-Venaria-Reale.-La-Reggia-d-Italia/La-bella-Italia

There is a little problem. The exhibition should feature art from – I quote –  pre-unification “capital cities”...

Now, anybody who knows Italian history will soon recognize that…Bologna and Palermo WERE NOT capital cities, and have never been capital cities in the immediate pre-unification European asset, just to make it clear. On the contrary,  TRUE AND IMPORTANT CAPITAL CITIES LIKE MODENA AND PARMA (see Duchy of Modena e Reggio, Duchy of Parma) have been completely ignored. Any history student would be granted a “fail” in his/her exam for listing Bologna and Palermo as pre-Italian unification capital cities, these people are granted a lot of (public) money (in heavily indebted Italy) for doing this job BAD…

A mistake in the rationale, a shame and a stupid choice, since Modena and Parma are beautiful cities with wonderful and important cathedrals and well-established art museums and no exibition should be ashamed to feature them.

Politicians already tried to underline the mistake:

http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/dalgiornale/2010/01/01/news/mostra-sulle-capitali-modena-snobbata-2867187

http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/cronaca/2011/01/04/news/giovanardi-parma-e-modena-unite-per-rimediare-all-esclusione-3095374

Please note that I had to agree with Giovanardi. This hurts! Never had I thought such a thing would happen… 😀

Now, as a historian I should try to understand:

  1. Did they fall victim of a sort-of-a-lapsus, writing “pre-unification capital cities” but thinking “today’s capital cities of Regioni(administrative unit similar to German or Austrian Land)” Or trying to create an innovative and provocative theory, making history from 1970 onwards retroactive? mm…
  2. Are they trying to perpetuate certain mythologies related to the history of unification and to the further political developments (Italy is a good thing, Austrians and Germans are the bad; the asset of nowadays – where a few cities catalyse any possible investment in public money – is the only one possible and so on? )
  3. Are they simply ignorant?

Who knows…

I believe Modena should start a serious reflection about her history, her historians…and definitely do not cooperate if asked for art pieces from her museums for these celebration. Reflect, rethink, boycott.

And, quoting the South Tyrolean slogan:  Los von Bologna! (away from Bologna!). We are only destroying our past and our future! We should re-integrate the old Emilia Longobarda and strengthen our ties to Central Europe (and no, not Eastern-Central Europe and not in the way Marchionne would wish…)

Updates

http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/cronaca/2010/12/02/news/modena-esclusa-intervenga-napolitano-2879888
“organizzatori per capitali intendono quelle che hanno avuto un ruolo rilevante” ( “capital cities” are intended by the organisers as cities which played an important role).
What does this mean?
1) capital city has a definite meaning. Say “main city”, “main centre” – more appropriate – and, in any case, define in the rationale how you will use the definition. Rule No. 1 in every scientific work
2) Arguing that Modena and Parma ( even Reggio Emilia) did not play any important role before unification seems hard to every historian…

“Bologna as representative of whole Emilia”…and here once again the ignorance of almost an entire nation, ignoring that Bologna was not Emilia and this idea of Emilia has been invented. This will be finally shown in my Ph.D. Thesis. And…if art historians want to forge a new definition and a new theory, making an “Emilian art” exist” and creating a definition for a representative of this art…well, they should once again re-write their rationale, exposing their theory and using their own scientific language, not “ours”. “Capitali pre-unitarie” has a definite meaning if used without specification (“dell’arte” = “of art”). Even in this meaning, many people would not agree with the Piemontese choice…

http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/dalgiornale/2011/01/06/news/modena-torna-capitale-ma-a-meta-3111004

http://gazzettadimodena.gelocal.it/dalgiornale/2011/01/07/news/pighi-modena-esclusa-arroganza-sabauda-il-museo-lo-riapro-3118737

Another one, from the Corriere della Sera:

http://www.corriere.it/unita-italia-150/11_gennaio_07/parma-modena_f49ab0ae-1a47-11e0-91c1-00144f02aabc.shtml

«Forse c’è stato un equivoco — afferma il direttore della Reggia di Venaria, Alberto Vanelli —: questa non è una mostra storica sulle capitali d’Italia, ma una rassegna che punta a dimostrare come l’arte delle varie città, ben prima dell’unità d’Italia, avesse avuto un ruolo universale e unificante.

Then you should, again, read my comments about the way you developed your rationale, or abstract, or exposè, or razionale scientifico, as you prefer. Using the expression “Capitali pre-unitarie”  as shown on the site implies a certain meaning. I will not repeat what I exposed above.

“Creative history” as new level of public use of history?

Once upon a time there was Tyrol. Then Savoia Italy took away a strategic piece of land from it and made “Alto Adige” out of it. Many claim “it’s Italy, they are trentini, they must speak Italian”.

The same happened (beginning actually some years before…) some miles southwards on the Brennerstraße. Former capitals were subordinated to Bologna, the idea of Emilia Longobarda was gradually destroyed until the wonderful creation of Emilia-Romagna and of an Emilian Bologna. Guelph Bologna always fought Ghibelline Modena but only dominated Romagna and belonged later to the Papal State.

Political implications for these ideologies are quite clear. (see above).

I am waiting for my book about Austria to be published and for my Ph.D. thesis to be completed to have the possibility to bring new issues in the cultural and political debate around these themes, using ideas and evidences!
