An unmissable appointment, The Book of the Year 2022 directed by Riccardo Chiaberge presents the events and salient themes of the twelve months just passed in culture and art, politics and economics, science and technology, in Italy and in the world.
The volume is structured in four distinct parts.
The chronology: It summarizes the most significant facts day by day, accompanied by images, figures and brief insights. Each month is introduced by a gallery of images on the most significant events of the period. The symbol photo at the opening fixes the event of the month.
The topics: 30 articles entrusted to leading journalists and leading experts in the various disciplinary sectors offer insights into the most important and emblematic phenomena, problems and personalities of the year.
In this edition a section will be dedicated to the war in Ukraine whose consequences, combined with other ongoing trends, could reshape the global balance. We will therefore speak of "hybrid war", the refugee emergency, the repercussions of the conflict on the raw materials market and the risks of a food crisis; the development of European defense; while an introductory essay by Andrea Graziosi will take stock of the war in Europe in 2022 and its meaning.
Among the other topics addressed: Pasolini's cultural heritage and his interpretation of society on the centenary of his birth; the European cultural "debt" with Russian and Ukrainian literature; the state of the music industry and the spread of liquid music; the rebirth after Covid-19 of Brescia and Bergamo, Italian capitals of culture 2023; the gender gap in the workplace; xenografts; the rethinking of cities from a truly sustainable perspective; the James Webb Space Telescope and the resumption of volcanic activity. The series of themes are concluded by the Words of the year (also with the words of the war).
