Only few of the increasing number of people interested in Tibetan art history appear to be aware of the fact that defining Giuseppe Tucci as an "art historian" is inadequate, when considering the scope of the subjects in his over 360 publications (see Luciano Petech and Fabio Scialpi, "Bibliografia degli scritti", in Raniero Gnoli, ed., Ricordo di Giuseppe Tucci, IsMEO, Roma 1985, pp.
A less than superficial glance at Tucci's works compels the reader to realize that art was to him just one aspect of Tibetan civilization and that there is very little specifically "art historical" in most of his main scientific publications related to geo-cultural Tibet: The Tombs of the Tibetan Kings (IsMEO, Roma 1950), Preliminary Report on Two Scientific Expeditions in Nepal (IsMEO, Roma 1956), Tibetan Folk Songs from Gyantse and Western Tibet (Artibus Asiae, Ascona 1966), Deb t'er dmar po gsar ma.
From 1956, in spite of the publication of books and articles devoted to Tibet, Tucci was brave enough to move to a new field of research, promoting the archaeological activity of IsMEO in the border areas between the Iranian and the Indian world--Pakistan and Afghanistan--, an activity that he directed also in the field until his remarkable constitution allowed him to do so.
Having translated Abhinavagupta's Tantrasara in 1960 (now reprinted and corrected--Turin: Boringhieri, 1990), and his important and difficult Paratrimsakavivarana (Rome: IsMEO, 1985), as well as the shorter Paratrisikalaghuvrtti (Boringhieri, 1970), not to mention having produced several papers on related subjects, Raniero Gnoli has done more than anyone else to make the work of Abhinavagupta, one of India's foremost philosophical and religious figures, better known and understood.
This will not surprise those acquainted with Torella's work: the same richness, philological precision, and philosophical insight characterize, for instance, his critical edition and English translation of Utpaladeva's Isvarapratyabhijnakarika with the author's Varttika (Rome: IsMEO, 1985).
