Niccolò Ammaniti
La vita intima (The Intimate Life)

After 7 years, the new awaited novel by Niccolò Ammaniti.

The Intimate Life is a powerful novel, which brings Niccolò Ammaniti back to his origins, to his most successful books, but with something more, something new. In the ironic and often grotesque hues that make his writing unmistakable, he gives us a modern Portrait of a Lady, as painful as Henry James’s masterpiece and capable of making us laugh to the point of tears.

Ezio Mauro
L’anno del fascismo (The year of fascism)

1922 seemed a difficult and violent year in a lost country, but instead it was the Italian threshold of dictatorship.

Melania G. Mazzucco
Self-Portrait

The museum of the world of women.

Mazzucco returns today with a new Museum, dealing with works in which the woman is “twice the subject”: a woman conceives and creates the painting, and a woman is also the subject of the painting. An all-female path, where women “claim the right to turn their backs on housework,” to fulfill themselves through art, beyond the roles that society and the culture of the time assign to them. Keep reading…

Francesco Piccolo
La bella confusione (The Beautiful Confusion)

Two absolute masterpieces: the power of art, the secrets of cinema, the duels of an Italy that we would no longer know how to imagine.

Francesco Piccolo’s passion for cinema, politics and literature blazes in this great story – unique and overwhelming – about the strength of genius and destiny. Keep reading…

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…

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…
