Parisul renascentist

Dupa ce ne-am plimbat virtual prin Parisul galo-roman si am descoperit o parte din viata in capitala Frantei in Era medievala cu ajutorul Musee de Cluny, pasim acum pe urmele Renasterii in Orasul luminilor.

Retragerea armatei engleze dupa Razboiul de 100 de ani din Franta a lasat in urma un peisaj dezolant. Majoritatea cladirilor cu structura de lemn au avut de suferit in urma incendiilor, orasul ramanand aproape in ruine.

Incetul cu incetul insa, orasul si-a recapatat stralucirea. Fermecati de Renasterea italiana, regii francezi ai secolului XVI au sustinut dezvoltarea artei si a arhitecturii. In 1516 Leonardo da Vinci viziteaza Parisul, la invitatia regelui Francisc I si aduce cu sine Mona Lisa.

In 1609 se da in folosinta Place Royale, prima piata din capitala Frantei, construita la cererea regelui Henri al IV-lea.In centrul pietei se desfasurau duelurile, iar in cladirile ce inconjurau acest spatiu larg (36 de case, cate 9 pe fiecare latura) adaposteau nobilimea vremii. Tot aici s-a sarbatorit printr-un turnir de trei zile casatoria lui Ludovic al XIII-lea cu Ana de Austria, s-a nascut Madame de Sevigne si au locuit cardinalul Richelieu si Victor Hugo.

In zilele noastre Place Royale si-a schimbat numele in Place des Vosges, dar cladirile din caramida acoperite cu placi de ardezie au ramas intacte si e considerata de parizieni si nu numai "cea mai frumoasa piata din lume". Puteti sa va faceti o idee despre ce e vorba din prima fotografie, dar trebuie sa faceti un drum pana la Paris ca sa simtiti cu adevarat gustul istoriei.


Intre 1532 si 1637 s-a construit Biserica St-Eustache, ce urmeaza planul interior al Catedralei Notre-Dame. Pe langa arhitectura impresionanta si frumoasele vitralii, St-Eustache are scrijelita in trecutul sau si legatura cu nume celebre ale urbei. Richelieu si Marquise de Pompadour au fost botezati aici, iar Moliere a fost inmormantat in aceasta biserica. S-a pastrat impecabil si o gasiti in Place du Jour.




























Marturie a perioadei renascentiste sta si Tour St-Jacques, in care Blaise Pascal facea tot felul de experimente. Parte a unei biserici in stil gotic ce dateaza din anul 1523, acesta constituia un punct de reper pentru pelerinii care porneau in lungi calatorii.

In Cartierul latin veti descoperi Biserica St-Etienne du Mont in care se gaseste mormantul Sfintei Genevieve, ocrotitoarea Parisului. Tot aici au fost inmormantati Pascal si Racine. Daca nu vreti sa faceti un drum pana aici doar pentru cateva nume celebre, puteti sa faceti un efort pentru frumoasa catapeteasma si vitraliile ce dateaza din Era Renasterii.

Un ultim popas in Parisul renascentist trebuie sa il faceti la Musee Carnavalet, un muzeu interesant, adapostit in doua conace superbe, in interiorul carora se gasesc sali complet mobilate si obiecte de arta care povestesc istoria Parisului si va ajuta sa patrundeti pentru ceva timp in atmosfera epocii. Il gasiti pe Rue de Sevigne, la numarul 23.

Ce ziceti, va place Parisul renascentist?

    Air Jordan 6 Retro Black Metallic Gold Dmp, Smoking is associated with more severe outcomes for coronavirus patients, a recent study of studies has found. (Jenny Kane / )In times of stress, like living through a global pandemic, it's natural to fall back on soothing habits gardening, playing video games or, for some, lighting up a cigarette or taking a pull on a marijuana vape pen.The science is in its early stages, but studies are finding that cigarette smokers are more likely to have severe infections a fact many lung doctors say doesn't surprise them."It's now pretty clear that there is data to show that if you are a smoker, you're more likely to have adverse outcomes from COVID 19, need mechanical ventilation and to die than if you're not a smoker," said Richard Castriotta, a doctor specializing in pulmonary critical care at Keck Medicine of USC.Smoking damages the lung's defense mechanisms, making it harder to fight off COVID 19 and other respiratory diseases, according to several doctors who specialize in chest conditions like pneumonia, asthma and tuberculosis.One of the disease's main targets is the lungs, and injured lungs have more trouble fighting off COVID 19 and other respiratory diseases, Castriotta said.What does science say?Early data was conflicting. Some reports indicated that smoking was not associated with increased adverse outcomes and that smokers were underrepresented in hospital settings, leading some such as the celebrated painter David Hockney to claim that smokers might even have immunity to the virus that has claimed more than 1,500 lives in California.Stanton Glantz, director of a tobacco research and education center at the University of California San Francisco, called the claims "really fringe stuff," primarily being pushed by tobacco and vaping advocates.
