Anna Nicolini admirably describes and represents millinery traditions. The hat, a status symbol par excellence - there is no uniform or livery that does not include one - is conveniently worn like any other article of clothing and as such it can have many different shapes. The hat can have a practical and protective function like in sport and at work, as well as in risky and dangerous activities, but the greatest satisfaction comes from wearing it for pleasure. The design of the hat shape, its use and refined decorations are typical phases of the artisans creation and it is exactly this collaboration between industry and artisans that allows making the most of two aspects: the distribution of a comparatively cheap and good quality product and its adaptability to fashion changes and to the demands of whoever is wearing it. This book is a small contribution which pays tribute to civilization by transferring to new generations the capacity to make things, the essence of mans creative spirit.

Zylinder mit Eigenleben: Ein schwarzer, satinschimmernder Zylinder mit magentaroter Schleife fliegt vom Kopf eines reichen Mannes und findet einen neuen Träger in der Person des nicht gerade vom Glück verwöhnten Soldaten Benito Badoglio. Der bemerkt bald die ausser-gewöhlichen Fähigkeiten des Hutes, mit denen er einem Touristen das Leben rettet, ein Baby aus einem brennenden Kinderwagen in Sicherheit bringt und noch einiges mehr. Nachdem der Hut sowohl Benito als auch seinen Mitmenschen viel Gutes und Schönes ermöglicht hat, fliegt der Zylinder "bald hierhin und bald dorthin Wohin? ... weiss nur der Himmel". Tomi Ungerer, der Name steht einerseits für Bücher wie "Geheimes Skizzenbuch", "The Party" oder "Fornicon" aber auch für "kein Kuss für Mutter", "das grosse Liederbuch" oder eben "der Hut".

As it ravaged the world, the influenza epidemic of 1918 devastated Boston’s congested North End and left hundreds of orphans in its wake. Touched by this crisis, a Roman Catholic priest and a group of Italian Americans founded the first home for Italian children in Massachusetts. Franciscan Sisters devoted 24 hours a day to providing the children with a safe, loving, and spiritual environment. In addition, the home provided educational support for its residents. Over time, the changing needs of children mandated that the agency change the nature of its services from custodial care to treatment. In 1974, in response to the changing political and social climate, the agency became the Italian Home for Children. Today, it is a nonprofit, nonsectarian residential treatment facility with a capacity for 61 children of all races, nationalities, and religions. The images in The Italian Home for Children document milestones in the organization’s history: the devastating influenza epidemic, the Missionary Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, Christmas plays, a visit from Joe DiMaggio, trips to Canobie Lake Park in the summer, the Tony Martin benefit performance at Boston Garden, and the home as it is today—a refuge for children in the most severe crises.
