Appunti :
It can be a hard transition going from the freedom of summer
to the structure of being back in the classroom for both
teachers and students. The beginning of the school year is
also busy with many tasks including the development of new
programs. Contact us at anytime if you need assistance with
resources.
An exciting new / old resource relates to “Arcobaleno.”
Constantly in demand, this evergreen has had the picture
story books from each theme pack transferred into eBooks
with audio, enabling them to be used on a computer or
through the interactive whiteboard. This ensures that the
program is able to continue being used in primary schools.
Consideration now needs to be given to the renewal of
subscriptions to the Resource Centre and a current form is
enclosed within this Newsletter. A reminder that there is now
the option to pay subscriptions via Electronic Funds Transfer
(EFT). However, it is vital that a remittance form and
subscription form is forwarded together with all relevant
information.
There are two major cultural events happening this year which
may be of interest to you and your students. Details are

Giovanna Garzoni 1600 – 1670
The following article is due to Angela Zerella, Mullum P.S., who while integrating an Italian
Language unit of work with Art for an Italian Day activity first brought the works of this wonderful
artist to our attention.
Apart from making students aware of the work of this 17th century Italian female artist, Angela used
the series of her artworks to explore shape, composition and colour.
Students developed skills in observational drawing, and including their own range of fruits or related
subject matter to create a composition using overlapping of subject matter. They were also
challenged to strategically place an insect, partially hidden object or other natural object, such as a
shell or stone in their artwork.
Giovanna Garzoni, born in 1600 and was one of the first women
artists to practice the art of still life painting, in a largely maledominated field. Although she enjoyed a considerable reputation
in her life-time, she is rarely mentioned by contemporary sources.
She did however, succeed in having a life of steady work and
constant success.
Scholars have speculated about Garzoni’s early training and though none have come to any firm
conclusion it is believed that as a young woman, Giovanna Garzoni left her native town of Ascoli, in
the Marche, and worked under patronage in major cities, beginning in Venice, in 1625, during which
time she also composed a volume of calligraphy. This included capital letters illuminated with fruits,
flowers, birds, and insects. These subjects were to become her specialty, and tempera on vellum
was her preferred medium.
A dish of figs
A dish of pomergranate, a grasshopper, a snail and two chestnuts
By 1630 she was in Naples, at the court of the Spanish Duke of Alealà and in 1632 she moved to
Turin, and worked for five years at the court of the Duke of Savoy, mainly painting portraits.
However, Garzoni’s refined interpretation of plants and animals suited the taste of her aristocratic
patrons, like the Medici family, and she decorated many of their villas.
It was in Florence that she was especially appreciated where she stayed in the 1640s, and these were
some of her most productive years. She worked as court miniaturist to the Grand Duke Ferdinando
Il Centro – Co.As.It Resource Centre Newsletter Volume 22, Issue 1
II, his wife the Grand Duchess Vittoria della Rovere, and other important families. She painted
portraits, copied old masters, and created original and very stylized still-life compositions, placing
subjects against neutral back-grounds with odd manipulations of scale and perspectives. The
definition of miniature painting referred not to size but to the technique, similar to illuminated
manuscripts, which brilliantly created an almost three-dimensional effect. Her freshness of style
comes from a delicate balance between natural science illustration and her own gift of decorative
design. It is possible she used a convex mirror, as these were a standard aid in every painter’s
studio.
A dish with cherries and carnations
A dish of broad beans and carnation
After 1654, her name appears frequently in the records of the Accademia di San Luca, an academy
for the study of the fine arts in Rome. Whilst there, she continued to paint for her Medici patrons
until her death in 1670, ending her days as a Cappucin tertiary at the Accademia, to whom she
bequeathed all her own papers, her libro delle mininature which was a form of sample book for
potential customers, and her considerable art collection.
The rediscovery of Giovanna Garzoni’s work began with her inclusion in a classic exhibition of Italian
still-life paintings in Naples in 1964. Subsequently, many studies and publications have brought
knowledge of her scant biography and catalogue of work to the current level. Garzoni’s paintings
were so well liked that, according to one writer, she could sell her work “for whatever price she
wished.”
Her true talent is obvious and her great achievements take on even greater proportions when they
are measured against the era in which she painted.

Pavilion Books, London, 1992.

Spectacular Spettacolo Shows For 2014!
“Time Warp Part 1 and 2” may be finished, but Spectacular Spettacolo will be back in
2014 with the final part of the trilogy (for the final year), “Part 3 – Vacanze Romane”.
These shows are relevant for students Prep – 6 and are from our very popular “Time
Warp” series (more information on our shows including sample songs are available on our
website at www.leaporcaro.com.au/spectacular-spettacolo/).
The shows have been written by Lea and Corrado Porcaro. Corrado has been teaching
Italian for almost 30 years in the Primary sector, as well as having developed many
programs for the Department of Education over the years. Many teachers already use
resources that he has created in their classrooms. Corrado knows the curriculum like the
back of his hand and he has written these shows knowing what teachers (and students) not
only need, but want. This is why we have had 100% positive feedback so far!
Our shows are not only dynamic, fun, engaging, interactive and contain fresh, new, popular
songs relevant for the students of today, they also cover different areas of Italy as well
as topics that relate back to the current curriculum. For example, in “Part 3 – Vacanze
Romane”, our heroine, Claudia, returns to Italy and each place she visits, we have a song
that relates back to what the students are learning. Every booking will also include the
fantastic teachers’ pack which contains over a semester’s worth of material (including loads
of lesson plans with fun ideas on how to introduce the language used throughout the show
either before or after the students have seen it), the lyrics to all the songs sung
throughout the show and a copy of the CD. The pack has also been put together by
Corrado. Feedback from teachers in regards to this pack has been extraordinary!
