Kvass

 

(Russian, kvas), a refreshing drink, dating from Kievan Rus’.

Kvass is usually made from malt (rye or barley), rye flour, sugar and mint. A kvass wort is prepared and then fermented with the aid of a combined culture of kvass yeast and lactic acid bacteria. The wort is kept at 20°-25°C for six to 12 hours to complete fermenting process. The kvass is cooled to 10°-15°C and poured off, with the yeast being left in the primary vessel; the kvass is then filtered and poured into barrels and bottles. Kvass concentrates, which are easily prepared at home, are available. Other kvasses are made of fruits and berries, including apples, lemons, and cranberries.

Si gira!, already in 1915, in the words of Gian Piero Brunetta, 'places on the carpet the fundamental themes that regulate the cinematic field and promotes a work of fiction to equal dignity with a work of film criticism and theory.' (1) For Giovanna Grignaffini, Pirandello's novel helps establish the fact that in the early twentieth century 'a view of the modern was primarily and by necessity a view of the cinema.' (2) Walter Benjamin's reference to this text by way of a French translation in his magisterial essay, 'The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,' published in 1935, is perhaps the chief reason that Pirandello's novel continues to be cited in accounts tracing the development of film discourse in the Teens and Twenties.
