Andrea Ricolfi
L’ultimo marinaio (The Last Sailor)

This is a book for those who would be happy just sitting on a rock by the sea and watching the snow fall on the fjord and on the surrounding mountains. It’s a book for those who, bravely enough today, choose nature over human beings, but still can’t help hoping in a better, more gracious humankind.

Matias lives on the island of Noss, a desert rock in the Norwegian sea. That very ocean, that took his father away when he was just a child, means everything to him. His only inheritance is the Marlin, a hand-built wooden sailing boat. This is the origin of his dream: to create a sailing school, to shape sailors like there used to be. Keep reading…

Patrizia Cavalli
Con passi giapponesi (Japanese Steps)

Premio Campiello 2020 finalist

From the first text that gives the volume its title, the reader finds himself contemplating a comic-tragic world, labyrinthine to the point of dizziness, in which passions without success and desperate, forced social mannerisms come on stage, while life bleeds out, faking it. Keep reading…

Ezio Mauro
Liberi dal male (Free from Evil)

A journey beyond fear, to understand how this epidemic is changing our freedom, our rights, our democracy.

“While power attacks the virus, the virus has already affected the power. It is not the one that changes, as we feared in our worst nightmares: in fact it is changing us and the relationship between citizens and State.” Keep reading…

Matteo Nucci
Achille e Odisseo. La ferocia e l’inganno (Achilles and Odysseus. Ferocity and Deception)

With an engaging narrative, Matteo Nucci reveals the eternal dimension of the two great Homeric heroes: opposite human models that go beyond the myth.

What does it mean to be human? Throwing yourself headlong against obstacles at the cost of death, or planning every move wisely? Chasing the truth, or manipulating it? To be Achilles, or Odysseus? Keep reading…

Silvia Ballestra
La nuova stagione (The New Season)

Shortlisted for Premio Strega 2020

Is everything really so immutable in the succession of generations and harvests? Can we still hope to leave the planet better off than when we came into it?

Silvia Ballestra writes a novel that is current and ancient at the same time, like the places where she was born, to which she dedicates pages of scathing humor, but also full of the nostalgia and the amazement of someone who feels that a new season is coming. Keep reading…

An Italy still alive in the deep memory of the country, in the familiar vicissitudes of many Italians.

Melania G. Mazzucco
L’architettrice

The first female architect of modern history.

In May 1624 a father accompanies his eight-year-old daughter to Santa Severa beach, north of Rome. There, a few months earlier, a chimerical creature ran aground. A whale. Until the day of that discovery, no whales had ever appeared on the coasts of Italy. That’s why the man is there. He wants his daughter to understand that even what is beyond our horizon exists.
