Elena Stancanelli
Il tuffatore (The Diver)

All around there are the dreams of glory of a country that looks to the man of providence at first with hope, and then with suspicion. Until everything collapses. 

Elegance and passion for risk coexist in Il tuffatore. As a young boy, Raul Gardini had learned how to dive from the Ravenna pier. Handsome, seductive, always tanned, scion of one of the most powerful Italian industrial families, he had both the ambition and unscrupulousness needed to change the rules of the game. He was driven by desire, by an obsession to go straighter and faster towards solving any problem. At any cost. Keep reading…

Filosofia della casa (Philosophy of the Home)

Vincenzo Trione
Artivismo (Artivism)

In the non-homogeneous scenarios of the art of our time, Vincenzo Trione identifies the emergence of a trend: political art, summed up by the expression “artivism”. 

 The protagonists are artist-intellectuals who follow different paths. Some of them create works aimed at bearing witness to the urgency of the news and the drama of migrants. Others build installations that pay attention to environmental and ecological issues. Keep reading…

Roberto Burioni
La formidabile impresa (The Formidable Endeavour)

For decades, mRNA research has seemed like a waste of time and resources. Today, that useless science has propelled us into a future of therapies that we thought were science fiction, which instead are within reach.

The mRNA revolution is yet another demonstration of the importance for human progress of “useless science”, pure research driven only by curiosity and thirst for knowledge. So this book becomes a passionate hymn to the science that saves (and fills) our lives – with a gallery of out-of-the-ordinary characters, compelling stories, brilliant ideas, noble intentions and human baseness. Keep reading…

Paola Mastrocola and Luca Ricolfi
Manifesto del libero pensiero ( The Freedom of Thought Manifesto)

Who is afraid of freedom of expression?

Paola Mastrocola and Luca Ricolfi seek the answer to a question that has insinuated itself into our lives in a dangerous way. Authoritarian censorship of the past has turned into the wildly correct, which bends the language to current trends (from innocent words being put on trial, to surreal “inclusive” neologisms), and into a cancel culture that reinterprets the past with the eyes of today. Keep reading…
