On the weekly: Ilúvatar, Tolkien and Christianity – by Konstantinos Doxiadis

‘There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Ilúvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made. And he spoke to them, propounding to them themes of music; and they sang before him, and he was glad.’

About the journal

Our piccioletta barca, or ‘little boat’, aims to embark upon a journey without a destination; a platform from which we can explore interests and passions from a diverse group of disciplines. Ranging from music to art, philosophy and literature, we have attempted to delve into the intricacies of thought, without allowing content or form to constrain us.

Meet the team

From poets to painters, musicians to interviewers, and philosophers to historians, the contributors of La Piccioletta Barca are what give our journal its identity.
