Description - Metropolis by Antonio Porta
Bilingual edition of the central work of the noted Italian experimentalist. This bilingual edition of "Metropolis" is one of the central works of the noted Italian experimentalist Antonio Porta. Born in 1935, Porta reveals the terrors and excitement of living in the 20th century as he charts the two complementary functions of definition and "falsity". For Porta, these poles are at the opposite ends of cultural experience: "The products of definition are so-called 'high' culture, which aspires to epigraphic and dogmatic conclusions; and a 'low' culture in which the definition is used as a prevaricatory tool of information at all levels."
