What are converging parallels in art Answers Converging Parallels Sometimes used with the term vanishing points, the converging parallels refers to the method of creating the depth of a drawing or painting You can draw a box and make it perfectly square If you make the cross line at the top a bit smaller than the bottom one, the box begins to look like it is leaning away from you. How to Use Converging Lines to Enhance Your Photography How to Use Converging Lines to Enhance Your Photography In a sense the two lines act like a funnel which directs the gaze of those entering them in a certain direction The same effect can be achieved with roads or pathways, converging fence lines, a set of stairs, power lines or virtually any other lines that run parallel into the distance or that actually converge at some point.

    1. 2.5 stars.I chose this book because it was based upon two of my favorite thingsery and Italy.I should not have chose this book because it was also based upon one of my least favorite things.politics.I thought this would be the perfect book for me and I was wrong by a long shot. The politics continued from start to finish and in order to understand the story, you need to understand Italian politics. I don't even fully understand American politics let alone another country. The politics over-overs [...]


    2. 1978. Commissario Piero Trotti, a senior investigator in a northern Italy provincial area near the River Po is faced with a dismembered body to identify and the kidnapping of his goddaughter to solve. In the time after the Aldo Moro kidnapping, the girl's father, an old friend, does not want to take the case directly to the police. The front cover caught my eye immediately! Nothing like superb cover design to sell a book!I did not start reading this book on 9 Nov! I just put it in GR on that day [...]


    3. Well written police novel set in the '80s in Florence, during the time of the kidnapping of Aldo Moro and the Brigate Rosse (Red Brigades).After reading this book and three books by Marco Vichy I get the impression that all Italian Police officers drink at work (or at least they used to in the past).Trotti takes a little sip of grappa from the bottle in his drawer every now and than.Liked the book but for now tend to like the Bordelli novels more. But will read the next book because I want to kn [...]


    4. A surprise. Very well written, highly enjoyable, Italian police procedural set against the 1979(?) kidnapping and execution of Aldo Moro. If you think Donna Leon does Italian corruption well, try this. The first Commissario Trotti installment, the last honest man in Italy. Includes some long, political/moral monologues which I found interesting, if not thought provoking. Not a page turning thriller, but nevertheless engaging. A little hard to find in my local libraries, but discovered this one d [...]


    5. Set in 1978 Italy with the Moro kidnapping as the backdrop, Commissaro Trotti has a kidnapping and murder in his own city that he must solve. I do not know how he made the connections because I never would have but he manages to solve them. This book sets up Trotti's life and world. It pulls in the politics of Italy and the police. He's an interesting man, very low keyed. He gets angry but it's when he should. I hope to read more in this series to see how his world expands or contracts based on [...]


    6. First novel in the series good startThis is the first of 5 novels. Good for a first Novel. The usual twists and turns. Three separate story lines that come together in the end. Interesting inspector and Italy is described well.


    7. My investigation of Italian Noir continues. Commissario Piero Trotti is a senior policeman in a provincial city off the River Po in about 1978. Italy is on high alert due to the activity of the Red Brigades and the kidnapping of former Prime Minister Moro. Trotti has several crimes to investigate - the kidnapping of a little girl (who happens to be his god daughter), the dismembered body of a local prostitute, and agitation by militant students as elections for this communist dominated City are [...]


    8. A quiet thriller set in Italy in the 1970s, this is the first in the multi-book Commissario Pietro Trotti series. Politics, police and family relations intersect across two plot lines— one focused on a child's kidnapping, the other on discovery of a dismembered body in the river. The action in this novel develops more slowly and in some ways was more in the background, relative to character development, than with most modern thrillers/crime novels. But once I gave into the style, I became inte [...]


    9. had lots of potential, but fell short. in the works of donna leon and andrea camilleri, we see detectives operating in an unfair world. in so doing they manage their boss and we find that redemptive. trotti could not do this so i found myself disliking him for being such a wimp. coupled with the fact that he seemed like such a bad parent found him to be a man that i had little respect for. not what you want in a hero.


    10. Very well-written police procedural novel that takes place in Northern Italy in the late 1970s. While I prefer Andrea Camillieri's Inspector Montalbano series, Timothy Williams' book starring Commissario Trotti kept me interested and hard to put down toward the end. I will read more of this series.


    11. Tense clever police thriller in a north Italian cityInspector Trotti has his hands full as he battles with lies and corruption, and at home he has domestic strife to deal with. Very good plot and cast.June Finnigan - Writer


    12. A first novel. Italian detective. Wife is bored with him. Teenage daughter. Very political boss. Sounds like Donna Leon. Decent writing but a too-convoluted plot line. All cases are too interconnected. Agatha-Christie-like. Maybe the next one will be better.
