One day, Venice was bathed in morning of fog. The Duke went out of the door of his Palace. A gondolier greeted to him:” Good morning Serenissimo!” In accordance with practice, the Duke only needed to give a nod, but the Duke replied to the gondolier unexpectedly:”S-ciávo!”, breaking a widespread rule throughout the Venetian dominion. The gondolier appreciated the greeting so much to repeat “S-ciávo! S-ciávo! ” to everyone he met. The gondolier discovered over time that this little word had a secret: It was magic. It brought back the smiles on sad faces, dissolving fears and uncertainties. Soon it spread around the world.

內容簡介
世界的起源:十九世紀自然的發明
在科學與藝術的十字路口,這本書將科學發現的主要里程碑與集體想像中的相似之處進行了比較。
十九世紀見證了自然科學的空前發展。達爾文理論質疑人類的起源、他在自然中的地位、他與動物的聯繫以及他在一個現在被理解為生態系統的世界中的動物性。這場科學的劇變,以及整個世紀的公開辯論,深深地影響了藝術家們。
奧賽博物館首次與巴黎國家自然歷史博物館合作,舉辦一場關於科學與藝術交叉的展覽,該博物館將追溯這一問題的主題,並將直面科學發展的主要里程碑與他們在本領域的平行發現。

At the crossroads of science and art, this catalogue compares the main milestones of scientific discoveries with their parallels in the collective imagination.
The nineteenth century saw an unprecedented development of the natural sciences. Darwinian theory questions the origins of man, his place in Nature, his links with animals and his own animality in a world now understood as an ecosystem. This upheaval in the sciences, as well as the public debates throughout the century, deeply influenced the artists.
The Musée d’Orsay is devoting an exhibition to the intersection of science and the arts for the first time, in partnership with the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, which will retrace the themes of this questioning and will confront the main milestones of scientific discoveries with their parallel in the art.

Magnificent and never done before fully illustrated world history of museums. A complete political, social and cultural perspective.
Humans have had the impulse for millennia to conserve, acquire, accumulate objects deemed beautiful, interesting, intriguing or rare, for their personal pleasure, but also as an attribute or privilege of their power and wealth.
It is from these first collections that little by little the modern museums we know today have emerged, dedicated to the conservation of objects, constantly in movement, in creation, in questioning, for the greatest delight, and education, of the masses. No “history of the museum” such as this has ever been attempted.

Contents
• Vol. 1 : FROM TREASURE TO MUSEUM
• Vol. 2 : THE EUROPEAN ENCHORING 1789-1850
• Vol. 3 : THE MUSEUM CONQUEST OF THE WORLD

Vol. 1: FROM TREASURE TO MUSEUM

The first volume consists in relating how museums evolved from private collections to modern institutions: from a distant past to the first museums of Art and nature discovery, via the royal treasures of the Middle Ages. A history made of donations and commerce, of theft and looting, of wars and diplomacy. But also of architecture, of ways of contemplating and handling objects, of legal and organizational problems. A history of art, but also of commerce, knowledge and techniques.

Vol. 2: THE EUROPEAN ENCHORING 1789-1850

The second volume deals with the European anchoring of museums, invented in Italy at the end of the 15th century, spreading all over Europe and especially France, Spain, England, the German states, the Austrian Empire and Sweden, in the 18th century. It will span from the French Revolution to the 1950’s.

Vol. 3: THE MUSEUM CONQUEST OF THE WORLD, to be published in March 2022
The third volume covers the museum conquest of the world, from the industrial revolution to the present day. A diversification of content with the World’s fair, history ethnology, nature, science and art museums, a geographical spreading towards East and South, then West, the consequences of the wars, the new challenges museums face or embrace.

Once the fishing village’s pride, the big boat is now silently docked at the port, watching the alternation of the four seasons and the changes of the times. In the story, the big boat is cleverly designed as a participant and a witness of the small fishing village. It witnesses the small fishing village become a big city and people’s lives get better and better.
Through the eyes of the big boat, children see a colorful city. The stories that the big boat has experienced are like the lighthouses in a long river that help the children understand the abstract concept of time and how the change of time influences things. They unravel the secrets of time for the children.
