John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama.

The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope

and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched.

I would draw some of the great tales in fullness,

A PLACE IN EVOLUTION

give us your opinion: how should Tolkieniana Net grow up?

Tolkieniana is a dream.

A dream of creating a meeting place between Middle-Earth and our world, or, better, to point out the already existing intersections which just a few people can see, Oxford’s aedo first of all.

They say that when we imagine we are running away, so let’s escape, the “prisoner’s holy escape”, as Tolkien would have said. But, actually, imagination requires commitment and total dedication.

This is well known by artists, scientists who do researches, freethinkers.
Imagination is scary, breaks the calm of academic thinking, overflows forced paths, digs caves under the foundations of united thought.

And what does Tolkieniana have to do with all this?
Let’s go back to a dream, the dream of a 17-year-old boy’s dream who read The Lord of the Rings and became desperate because he didn’t live on Arda.

Can an imaginary world be more beautiful, rich and fascinating than everyday life? A positive answer appears to be obvious, but this should lead us to think. Is the problem actually in our reality, or maybe is the way we live and conceive it? Is life banal, or do we make it banal?

We each have our own answer. As for me, I found a first solution in music, which until then I had only played. Starting to compose music, inspired by Tolkienian readings, I caught a glimpse of a door which allowed me to go back into the world my teenage mind had fallen in love with.

The beauty that Middle-Earth shows us, is the beauty of our world, of our Europe, nothing else. The myth does not hide the reality, but discloses it; it helps us to recognize its essence, to overcome the perceptive barriers we ourselves have created, to reopen our childish, or if you prefer, elfish eyes.

If the aim of a good story is to show us a new point of view on immanence, Tolkien has been the absolute Master of XX century on this, and I do not think to exaggerate. Other authors have had other credits, but the Homer of our days has been undoubtedly him.

It’s not by chance that Middle-Earth is the secondary world which has inspired most musicians and artists of all arts in modern history.

The Moria's port drawed by Tolkien

So we have the need to create a place, even virtual, where these artists can meet, compare, express themselves. This wants to be Tolkieniana.Net: a network, an agora, a place of beauty. This is the spirit of the project.

Obviously, just an enthusiastic Ringer, as much as he wants, can’t succeed on his own in making this dream real: the seeds for a new garden need to be sown, as Sam would have loved. Still better, a new Homely House need to be built up, a perfect House, whether you love food, or rest, or songs, or tales, or whether you just like being sitting and reflecting, or a pleasant combination of all this.

Be ready, because the door is about to open.
Pedo mellon, a minno – Speak “friend” and enter.
