Tre ricchi rampolli annoiati che scelgono il furto d’appartamento per dare un guizzo d’adrenalina alle loro giornate vuote. Un professore raffinato e burbero, un farmacista latin lover, un capitano in pensione e un vispo pescatore decisi a portare a termine la loro impresa in barba all’età. Una badante peruviana che non sa più quale sia su casa. Un giovane medico del pronto soccorso alle prese con un inquietante mistero. Una mamma single alle prese con ex marito fedifrago, suocera complice, zia anziana, nuovi amori, figlia adolescente e due gemellini terribili.Persone diverse, ma con una cosa, anzi un luogo, in comune: la palazzina liberty in cui vivono, in una cittadina di mare. Lì prendono vita e si snodano le loro storie, i personaggi si annodano, i sentimenti si chiariscono e ci accompagnano con gustosa ironia alla soluzione dell’enigma. Che era partito da un semplice ciondolo. A forma di ramarro.

Now in paperback! Morgante The Epic Adventures of Orlando and His Giant Friend Morgante Luigi Pulci Translated by Joseph Tusiani Introduction and Notes by Edoardo A. Lèbano "Pulci's Morgante is a multilayered text... so rich in witticisms, ribaldry, and word games that it has defied accurate rendering into English. Tusiani, an experienced and effective translator and poet, has met the challenge with a fluid contemporary version, effectively conveying the tempo of the original as well as its comic verve." --F. A. Bassanese, Choice "Luigi Pulci, with Joseph Tusiani's translation and Edoardo A. Lèbano's commentary, has entered the pantheon of Italian epic poetry translated into English thus far infabited only by his three Italian followers: Matteo Maria Boiardo, Ludovico Ariosto, and Torquato Tasso."--Dino S. Cervigni, Italian Quarterly "A reference work that no scholar of the Italian Renaissance can afford to ignore. Lèbano has done justice to Tusiani's text and Tusiani has done justice to Pulci's masterpiece." --Gaetano Cipolla, Annali d'Italianistica A classic picaresque epic detailing the thrilling exploits of Orlando, Morgante is a tale of war and of the calamities that befall the romantic hero, his fellow knights, and their sovereign, Charlemagne. Orlando encounters the fierce Morgante and converts him; the giant then becomes his squire and trusted companion. This long-awaited annotated English translation will lead to a new appreciation of Luigi Pulci's singular epic masterpiece and a reassessment of the author's influence on modern English literature. Luigi Pulci (1432-1484) has been called the first Romantic poet after Dante. Admired by Lord Byron, Pulci was a major influence on the English Romantic poets. He was born in Florence to a noble family and was a member of the literary circle of his friend Lorenzo de Medici. Joseph Tusiani is Distinguished Service Professor (retired) at The City University of New York. His other translations include The Complete Poems of Michelangelo, Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered and Creation of the World, Boccaccio's Nymphs of Fiesole, Leopardi's Canti, and Dante's Lyric Poems. He is also author of several collections of verse in English, Italian, and Latin. Edoardo A. Lèbano, Professor of French and Italian at Indiana University, has published on Luigi Pulci's culture and works. Indiana Masterpiece Editions

Art critic, historian, writer, TV presenter, politician and professional provocateur, Vittorio Sgarbi is a prominent figure in Italy's cultural landscape. Controversial, often caustic, and always charismatic, his thought-provoking opinions and writings leave no room for indifference. In this highly readable and well-informed book, Sgarbi covers the life and works of Caravaggio, analyzing the genius's disordered and adventurous existence and the revolutionary greatness of his masterpieces. As Vittorio Sgarbi writes in the book: "The life and work of an artist always end up looking alike; but in Caravaggio's life there was a sense of fun, an enjoyment of burlesque and a lack of propriety that is not reflected even in his in most daring works. In Caravaggio, we had the cohabitation of a sophisticated, intellectual capable of imprinting an ideal turning point in the course of history and the principal character of an adventure story-quarrelsome, overbearing, cursed-as he was portrayed in romantic interpretations. On the other hand, his intemperance cannot be ascribed to the spirit of the times; behavior that we would call extravagant today was instead common in such violent and difficult times. The true greatness of Caravaggio lay in his having shown the other, and indeed authentic side of reality. But these are external elements, psychological reflections that pass from life into art."

“Cronache del Brigante Crocco” chiude la trilogia della saga sul Brigantaggio, di cui fanno parte i due volumi “Brigante” e “Caccia al Brigante”. È il racconto di una vita vissuta nella violenza fino all’impossibile, in un’era tragica di grande svolta epocale. È anche la cronistoria di un popolo che non volle sottomettersi ai conquistatori piemontesi e andò incontro a un bagno di sangue. Si può definire, a ragione, l’Olocausto del popolo lucano. Matteo Donato Gallucci si è laureato in Pedagogia a Bari. Cultore tenace della letteratura italiana e straniera, si è dedicato fin da giovane alla narrativa, tanto da raggiungere notorietà nazionale tra i Circoli culturali.

I suoi romanzi, “La Marchesa di Mantova”, “Specchio di giorni lontani”, “Il Quinto Vangelo”, “L’Ombra del Visir”, la trilogia sul Brigantaggio con i volumi “Brigante”, “Caccia al Brigante” e ultimo “Cronache minute del Brigante Crocco.
