T come Tango - Meri Lao

Ed. Elleu Multimedia

Tango Book. Tango is a dance unique in the world for its inventiveness and complexity of the combinations of movements. Multiethnic music and songs full of popular moods. Movement that unifies yesterday's emigrants and today's exiles. Body and art form that has conquered timeless artists and frontiers such as Carlos Gardel, Astor PIazzolla, Julio Cortazar, Osvaldo Soriano, Maurice Béjart, Carlos Saura, Sally Potter, Pina Bausch and Madonna. Demystified the stereotype of the woman bound like the ivy to the man, the TAngo remains a ritual capable of charm and sadness like no one, but above all a way of being and living that knows death but will never die.

tango collo franno  

Tango - Paolo Collo e Ernesto Franco

Ed. Einaudi

 

Tango Book. From 1905 to 1997 the words of the most beautiful tangos, with text opposite. Stories. Tango stories and tango stories. They come out slowly but confidently from the original Spanish texts, and from the Italian translations; they let themselves be told, they spread traces of feelings along simple but effective lines. Not only music and dance, but also words define the profile of a modern myth within which it is possible to find our gesture, our very tender, in some cases elementary, emotion.

A qualcuno piace... Tango - Cristina Balzano

Ed. Il Sigillo

Films of all ages and nationalities have offered us tangos written by very different musicians: just mention Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Pugliese, Luis Bacalov, GAto BArbieri. An attentive spectator cannot fail to recall sequences belonging to the history of world cinema which owe their expressive effectiveness to the notes of Amado mio, Cumparsita, Creola or Violetera. This book travels the paths of the history of cinema highlighting the moments in which tango becomes the voice and soul of the filmic representation, music and dance become cinema.

     
tangologia  

Tangologia - G. Lala

Ed. Il Sigillo

Tango as a dance is a facet of a rich culture that includes poetry, music, characters, stylistic and social evolution. If its essence and style are not intimately penetrated, then one dances to clichés and inevitably performs a parody of the dance. Starting from this assumption, the author sets himself the aim of helping to learn more about the culture of tango in all its aspects: historical, social, artistic, musical.

The book includes a valuable anthology of 115 tango songs with lyrics and front.

nero tango  

Nero Tango - foto di Pino Ninfa

Ed. MArcos y MArcos

Tango is not just a dance, a musical genre, a poetic form, but it is above all the expressive form of a community and a form of relationship between the sexes. At the heart of tango there is the need to go beyond a gripping loneliness, whose voice is the passionate one of the bandoneon left on the ground or tried in a dressing room, embraced as the most precious thing one possesses. It is the same solitude that emerges from the images of the milongas, places of clandestine meetings, where couples meet and dance under the apparently distracted gaze of a lonely man or woman; or that of dance teachers. The images shot by Pino Ninfa exalt geometries and rotations, impulses and conflicts, complicity and tensions.

     
dieci passi di tango  

Dieci passi di Tango

di Andrea Saridi

A salòn, a man who confides in a mysterious figure. Time marked by the memory that opens to the desire for a new life. Ten texts of Tango, which also tell the most secret movements of the soul. Thoughts that many have, without the courage to express them, often not even to themselves.
Author of poems, novels, and a comedy, Andrea Sardi explores the human soul through his artistic creation, identifies the patterns that sometimes imprison him, leading the individual to lose his identity until he gets lost.
It is a research aimed at discovering and sharing the route towards inner balance, to lovingly welcome oneself and the Other, to be free and aim for the full realization of
own destiny.
Welcoming these themes in a very expressionist way, "Ten Steps of Tango" finds a balance between rationality and emotionality, between logic and intuition. In a single composition, without a precise space-time limit, prose and poetry meet and complement each other.
