    La iglesia de la Sagrada Familia, proyectada por Ludovico Quaroni junto con Adolfo De Carlo, Andrea Mor y Angelo Sibilla en 1956, y construida en 1958/59, es un paradigma del modo de concebir el edificio cultual por parte de Quaroni: edificio al servicio de las almas y del barrio; monumento sacro y civil, no ret贸rico.Precisamente la relaci贸n muy estrecha entre el edificio y el barrio, constituye un factor importante de innovaci贸n en la arquitectura sacra del momento. Mediante esta l贸gica de inserci贸n urban铆stica, Quaroni tiene 茅xito al alcanzar una perfecta identificaci贸n entre el edificio y el barrio, entre el edificio y la ciudad, en continuidad con la cual se ubica la iglesia. Identidad que, en el proyecto, se encuentra tambi茅n entre la funci贸n, la forma y el significado del edificio: entre los contenidos y el continente, en todas las escalas.El proyecto, en efecto, testimonia claramente la concepci贸n unitaria que ten铆a Quaroni de la arquitectura y del proyecto, orientado hacia la construcci贸n de una estructura en la cual los componentes de la triada vitrubiana fuesen 芦no s贸lo incluidos, sino necesariamente fundidos, integrados y disueltos en la arquitectura resultante禄, dirigida hacia 芦una sola idea representativa y s贸lida, que impacte, que sea arrebatadora y que nazca pr谩cticamente 鈥攅n apariencia鈥 de la l贸gica interna y de la interpretaci贸n del lugar, elaborada tanto como para llegar a ser elegante, excelente, muy refinada禄.Desafortunadamente, el edificio se ha realizado de modo incompleto y, como tal, no ha materializado la idea del proyecto, ni en su integraci贸n en el barrio, ni en su relaci贸n entre forma, funci贸n y significado.Al no percibirlo ni como obra de arte, ni como lugar sacro, sus usuarios lo han modificado a lo largo de los a帽os para adaptarlo a las exigencias que hab铆an ido surgiendo, sin la debida atenci贸n a la arquitectura, con una p茅rdida progresiva de legibilidad de la misma.La intervenci贸n de restauraci贸n arquitect贸nica y de adaptaci贸n lit煤rgica prevista 鈥攑royectada por m铆鈥 se halla en curso de realizaci贸n parcial, y tiene el objetivo de hacer posible (como suced铆a en el proyecto de Quaroni) la unidad de los distintos componentes de la arquitectura, de modo que esta iglesia se pueda expresar finalmente por completo ella misma, por dentro y por fuera, como iglesia aqu铆 y ahora.The church of the Sagrada Familia, designed by Ludovico Quaroni together with Adolfo De Carlo, Andrea Mor and Angelo Sibilla in 1956, and built in 1958/59, is a paradigm of the way of conceiving the cult building by Quaroni: building at the service of the souls and the neighborhood; sacred and civil monument, not rhetorical.Precisely the very close relationship between the building and the neighborhood, is an important factor of innovation in the sacred architecture of the moment. Through this logic of urban insertion, Quaroni succeeds in achieving a perfect identification between the building and the neighborhood, between the building and the city, in continuity with which the church is located. Identity that, in the project, is also found between the function, the form and the meaning of the building: between the contents and the continent, in all the scales.The project, in fact, clearly demonstrates Quaroni's unitary conception of architecture and project, oriented towards the construction of a structure in which the components of the vitrubian triad were "not only included, but necessarily fused, integrated and dissolved. in the resulting architecture ", directed towards" a single representative and solid idea, that impacts, that is captivating and that is born practically -in appearance- of the internal logic and the interpretation of the place, elaborated enough to become elegant, excellent, very refined 禄.Unfortunately, the building has been carried out incompletely and, as such, has not materialized the idea of 鈥嬧媡he project, neither in its integration in the neighborhood, nor in its relation between form, function and meaning.By not perceiving it as a work of art, or as a sacred place, its users have modified it over the years to adapt it to the demands that had arisen, without due attention to architecture, with a progressive loss of readability. the same.The intervention of architectural restoration and planned liturgical adaptation -projected by me- is in the process of partial realization, and has the objective of making possible (as it happened in the Quaroni project) the unity of the different components of architecture, so that this church can finally fully express itself, inside and out, as a church here and now

    The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the forage preservation method (silage vs. hay) on volatile compounds and sensory properties of a traditional Caciocavallo cheese during ripening. A brown-midrib sudangrass hybrid was cultivated on a 7-ha field and at harvesting it was half ensiled in plastic silo bags and half dried to hay. Forty-four lactating cows were equally allotted into 2 groups fed a isonitrogenous and isoenergetic total mixed ration containing as the sole forage either sorghum hay (H group) or sorghum silage (S group). Milk from the 2 groups was used to produce 3 batches/diet of Caciocavallo ripened for 30, 60, and 90 d. Milk yield and composition as well as cheese chemical and fatty acid composition were not markedly affected by the diet treatment and ripening time. By contrast, ripening induced increased levels of the appearance attribute "yellowness," along with the "overall flavor," the odor/flavor attributes "butter" and "hay," the "salty," "bitter," and "umami" tastes, and the texture attribute "oiliness," whereas the appearance attribute "uniformity" and the texture attribute "elasticity" were reduced. The silage-based diet induced higher perceived intensities of several attributes such as "yellowness"; "overall flavor"; "butter"; "grass" and "hay" odor/flavors; "salty," "bitter," and "umami" tastes; and "tenderness" and "oiliness" textures. In S cheese we also observed higher amounts of ketones and fatty acids. Conversely, H cheese showed the terpene 伪-pinene, which was not detected in S cheese, and a higher intensity of the appearance attribute "uniformity." These differences allowed the trained panel to discriminate the products, determined an increased consumer liking for 90-d ripened cheese, and tended to increase consumer liking for hay cheese

    Towards a muon collider

    A muon collider would enable the big jump ahead in energy reach that is needed for a fruitful exploration of fundamental interactions. The challenges of producing muon collisions at high luminosity and 10 TeV centre of mass energy are being investigated by the recently-formed International Muon Collider Collaboration. This Review summarises the status and the recent advances on muon colliders design, physics and detector studies. The aim is to provide a global perspective of the field and to outline directions for future work

    Risk portfolio on modern finance has become increasingly technical, requiring the use of sophisticated mathematical tools in both research and practice. Since companies cannot insure themselves completely against risk, as human incompetence in predicting the future precisely that written in Al-Quran surah Luqman verse 34, they have to manage it to yield an optimal portfolio. The objective here is to minimize the variance among all portfolios, or alternatively, to maximize expected return among all portfolios that has at least a certain expected return. Furthermore, this study focuses on optimizing risk portfolio so called Markowitz MVO (Mean-Variance Optimization). Some theoretical frameworks for analysis are arithmetic mean, geometric mean, variance, covariance, linear programming, and quadratic programming. Moreover, finding a minimum variance portfolio produces a convex quadratic programming, that is minimizing the objective function 冒冒楼with constraints冒 冒 冒楼 楼 冒and冒麓冒楼 = 冒. The outcome of this research is the solution of optimal risk portofolio in some investments that could be finished smoothly using MATLAB R2007b software together with its graphic analysis
