                    [post_content] => The Happy Prince is a film directed by and starring Rupert Everett, focusing on the figure of Oscar Wilde.The film describes the last days of the writer's life. After a period of literary and theatrical successes, Oscar Wilde falls into disgrace.

Tried for homosexuality and sentenced to two years of hard labor, he retires to a boarding house in Paris. Here he spends his days in misery and illness, recalling his life, his passions, his relationship with Lord Douglas and his relationship with his wife Constance.

During his last days, he has a meeting with two young Parisian boys and tells them the fairy tale of "The Happy Prince". The story is about a statue that allows a swallow to deprive it of its gold to help the poor. In the film, it becomes a metaphor for the discovery of love as the only form of worship.

The memorial plaque of Samuel Taylor Coleridge is located in St. Michael's Church in Highgate, a North London suburb. The exact location of the coffin, however, had long been forgotten and was only rediscovered thanks to recent excavations.

The English poet, who died on the 25th of July 1834, was buried in the chapel of a Highgate school near where his last home was located. In 1961, the coffin was transferred to the crypt of St Michael's Church in a dry and safe place protected by a brick wall. Over the years, the exact location was forgotten until recent excavations revealed its presence.

The space where the coffin is located initially housed a seventeenth-century cellar, which was incorporated into the crypt of the church, itself built in 1831.

A memorial plaque to Coleridge hangs outside the church and in the middle of the nave is a stone slab inscribed with an epitaph that he wrote himself:  

Beneath this stone lies the body of Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Stop, Christian passer-by!-Stop, child of God, And read with gentle breast. Beneath this sod A poet lies, or that which once seemed he. O, lift one thought in prayer for S. T. C.; That he who many a year with toil of breath Found death in life, may here find life in death! Mercy for praise-to be forgiven for fame He asked, and hoped, through Christ. Do thou the same!

Victorian Giants: The Birth of Art Photography is the first major exhibition to examine the relationship between four important artists of the Victorian era, pioneers of the art of photography: Julia Margaret Cameron, Lady Clementina Hawarden, Oscar Rejlander and Lewis Carroll.

Among the stars of the show - hosted by the National Portrait Gallery in London - is Alice Liddell, the very girl who inspired Lewis Carroll in the writing of his novels. The four artists dealt with the same themes and photographed the same people, often children and teenagers.

Photographs of Charles Darwin are also on display, immortalized by Julia Margaret Cameron in 1868 ten years after the publication of "The Origin of Species", the work that had made him famous.

The exhibition will be open to the public until the 20th of May.

The title of the film refers to the instrumental composition "Rumble", published in 1958 by the American group Link Wray & His Ray Men, the only case of a song censored not for its lyrics but for the sounds it contains. The piece of music, known for its distorted guitar, has been used in several films, including Pulp Fiction, Blow and Independence Day. Link Wray, of Shawnee origin, is one of many artists related to Native Indian tribes. Using concert photos, audio archives and interviews with important figures in the music industry, the documentary shows how many American musicians found inspiration in the ancient melodies of the indigenous people.

The official name of the holiday is in fact Washington's Birthday. Initially, it was celebrated every year on February 22, the birthday of the first president of the United States.   Since the 1980s the holiday has been observed in a less strict way; schools, however, remain closed to mark the occasion. In the days leading up to the holiday, classroom activities are carried out to learn more about the life and history of Washington and the other presidents.  
Here you can find quizzes, fact sheets and other resources dedicated to the presidents and the history of the White House. Here you can find some useful activities to explore the history, politics and culture of the United States.

The film is set in 1940 and tells the story of the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, played by Gary Oldman. After the invasion of Norway, the House of Commons calls for the resignation of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. His successor, Winston Churchill, has to decide whether to negotiate a peace treaty with Germany or continue the war. Oldman delivers the famous speech, "We shall fight on the beaches" in the film. The speech was delivered by Churchill on the 4th of June, 1940, the day after the operation that led to the rescue of 300,000 British and French soldiers trapped on the beach at Dunkirk.
We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
The film is released in Italian cinemas on the 18th of January, 2018.

The seven day celebration was conceived in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, professor of African Studies and activist of the African-American rights movement in the United States. The name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili expression "matunda ya kwanza", which means "first fruit of the harvest". During the festival, families organize various activities around seven principles ("Nguzo Saba"): Unity, Self-determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith. The main symbol of the festival are seven coloured candles representing the seven principles; they are lit one at a time for each of the seven nights of the week.

The historical re-enactment–which this year reaches its 244th edition–takes place at the Old South Meeting House, the site where the settlers gathered in 1773. Here you can witness the reconstruction of the debate on tea taxes imposed by England. You can also follow the procession through the historic streets of Boston until the port where the tea destruction ceremony is held.

A group of artists, including Claude Monet and Camille Pisarro, left the French capital to move to London. The 'EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London' opened to the public on the 2nd of November, telling of the relationship between French artists and the UK capital. Six canvases of Monet's Houses of Parliaments series are exhibited. All the paintings in the series have the Palace of Westminster–the seat of the British Parliament–as subject matter, painted in different weather conditions and at different times during the day.

After a period of literary and theatrical successes, Oscar Wilde falls into disgrace. Tried for homosexuality and sentenced to two years of hard labor, he retires to a boarding house in Paris. Here he spends his days in misery and illness, recalling his life, his passions, his relationship with Lord Douglas and his relationship with his wife Constance. During his last days, he has a meeting with two young Parisian boys and tells them the fairy tale of "The Happy Prince". The story is about a statue that allows a swallow to deprive it of its gold to help the poor. In the film, it becomes a metaphor for the discovery of love as the only form of worship.
