Incubi (Italian Edition)
The spring of experienced one of the strangest meteorological phenomena ever recorded: a never-ending winter. This resulted three great writers to lock themselves at a mansion at Lake Geneva. Mary Shelley, John William Polidori, Lord Byron had a competition to see who would produce the scariest story ever written.
And they all won. Shelley created Frankenstein; Polidory planted the seed of Vampirism; and Byron, in his poem Darkness, narrated by the last man on earth produced the first item of the apocalyptic horror genre. AI and Horror cross paths: Anne Isabella Milbanke, wife of Lord Byron the founding father of modern Vampire literature gives birth to Ada Lovelace, a pioneer in the history of computation. Ada would go on to write the world's first machine algorithm for an early computing machine that existed only on paper.
Many movie hits, from Frankenstein, to Dracula, to The Mummy, to The Invisible Man, culminating in Werewolf in London put horror front and center of how the society decides to have a really good time In a explosion of creativity, they plant the seeds of what Artificial Intelligence would become: developing programs able to beat humans at checkers, to do complex math Rumours said that the first sentences typed by a computer were Since centuries, across geographies, religions, and cultures people try to innovate ways of scaring each other.
Creating a visceral emotion such as fear remains one of the cornerstones of human creativity. This challenge is especially important in a time where we wonder what the limits of Artificial Intelligence are: Can machines learn to scare us? Towards this goal, we present you Haunted Faces and Haunted Places : computer generated scary imagery powered by deep learning algorithms and evil spirits! Toggle navigation Nightmare Machine. Haunted Faces Do they scare you? Help our algorithm learn! Haunted Faces Step 1 We used state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms to generate new faces.
Haunted Faces Step 2 Then, we dropped a hint of scariness onto the generated faces in the spirit of Halloween. Haunted Faces Step 3 Now, we wonder: which faces are scarier? It was something like a medieval justification for wet dreams. Did the incubus rape dudes or girls? I think both, but I believe it was more common with women. I think it mainly had to do with explaining wet dreams.
Opera Di Incubi
So for hetero males, if they dreamed that they had sex with a woman, that was the succubus who seduced them. But the incubus was more violent, so it was also an excuse for rape. If a woman woke up after she'd been drugged or boozed up and then raped, the priest would say it had been an incubus.
Maybe he also raped dudes, I dunno. What does all this medieval nightrape have to do with the pictures in the Photo Issue, the ones you took at San Fratello, in Sicily? When I decided to make a book about stuff that scares me, I started to document all the things that have frightened me for a long time. One of my more recurrent nightmares and fears has to do with faceless people and the idea of masks—it's something that I have always feared.
Plus, I think it's also somewhat of an archetypal nightmare. So I did some research and found these religious festivals in southern Italy that have to do with masked men. These guys in San Fratello dress up to look like a devil, even if their name—I Giudei—is linked more with Judaism.
The Feast of the Jews
But they aren't meant to be Jewish, per se. They're more like the tempting devil, dressed in red and smiling because Jesus died. Pretty anti-Semitic. Well, yes and no. I mean, it would be easy to say that, but this is a festival that has existed for more than years in deep, deep southern Italy. Learning memory, remembering identity. Nation and Memory.

Analysis of the Corpus 3. Table 2 Lexical Co-occurrences with the Item P eace Also, the use of the word peace in political discourse paradoxically contributes to the formation of a biased model of the events, where the actors Europe and the West vs. Table 4 Examples Representing the Balkans as the European and Western Other The semantic analysis of the examples in table 4, which concern mostly the Italian reactions to the military operation Storm and the second elections after Croatian independence, reveals several negative concepts associated with the Balkans, whereas Europe and the West are automatically associated with success, order and wellbeing.
On the Subtopic 2 of Balkanophobia There is no universal agreement on how to map the Balkans with precision, but for this work it is important that the peninsula is often perceived as bordered on the northwest by Italy. Come sappiamo, fino a allora le banche USA operavano per i ricchi, escludendo gli immigrati e i piccoli coltivatori. Alla fine del i depositi ammontavano a oltre Il film avrebbe potuto costare meno, ma Amadeo volle che Chaplin, che aveva voluto conoscere personalmente, non fosse costretto a troppe economie. Nel , la Bank of Italy disponeva di 61 filiali. Ancora una volta i risultati andarono oltre ogni aspettativa.
Al contrario, i grandi banchieri che accettavano solo clienti danarosi, in tempi di crisi si trovarono a subire perdite considerevoli.
E non perdonarono a Giannini la sua lungimiranza. Appena si sparse la voce della sua malattia, un'armata di nemici - capeggiati dal presidente Transamericana Elisha Walzer, dal banchiere J. La reazione di Giannini fu assolutamente energica. Amadeo Peter Giannini non era particolarmente attratto dal cinema. Amava solo alcuni autori che attraverso i film raccontavano favole che miglioravano la gente. Frank era un siciliano che, ancora bambino, era arrivato in California con la famiglia. Qui divenne amico di Giannini, per cui aveva una devozione, in quanto vedeva il lui la personificazione dei principi insegnatigli dal proprio padre.

Frank e Amadeo amavano parlare in italiano, e spesso elaboravano insieme le scene dei film. Anche se questa redenzione avveniva spesso grazie a un miracolo, come accade nelle favole. Come abbiamo appena detto, Amadeo non corteggiava il mondo del cinema, ma da grande banchiere sapeva che questo mondo avrebbe portato alla banca grandi profitti. Nel , il "sognatore" Joseph Strass, progettista del Golden Gate, non riuscendo a trovare un finanziatore del suo progetto ebbe l'ispirazione di rivolgersi a Giannini.
