IN APPENDICE, I TESTI DI GIANLUCA MENEGOZZO, RICCARDO ROSSI E MATTEO REGHELIN. Nel 1997 nascono i Sun Eats Hours, la prima band di Francesco Lorenzi. Sono quattro giovanissimi vicentini, alle prese con un grande sogno: fare della musica la propria professione. Dopo qualche anno, hanno già all'attivo quattro dischi in inglese, più di trecento concerti tra Europa e Giappone, migliaia di fan del loro punk melodico e il premio come Miglior punk rock band italiana nel mondo. Enormi sono le soddisfazioni sul palco, ma la loro vita si smarrisce dietro a vari eccessi tra cui droga, alcol e sesso. Come racconta in questo libro sincero ed emozionante, Francesco entra allora in una profonda crisi: sente che così non può più andare avanti, che il legame tra i componenti della band si sta perdendo, che manca una vera ispirazione. Eppure, proprio quello è il momento della svolta: attraverso una serie di "Dioincidenze" Francesco incontra Gesù e rinasce, come uomo e come artista. Grazie a questa imprevedibile scintilla, comincia a scrivere canzoni in italiano e, dopo un percorso sofferto, riesce a recuperare alla Vita i suoi amici allontanandoli dalle loro dipendenze, riportando al centro il valore dell'amicizia. È così che poi, insieme, decidono di cambiare il nome della band in The Sun, perché ora si sentono guidati da un Sole che illumina il cuore. Le note musicali «ci permettono di ascendere al cielo, verso l'eterno e l'infinito, o almeno» scrive il cardinal Ravasi nella Prefazione, «di sentire una voce di speranza. Così è accaduto a Francesco Lorenzi e la sua autobiografia così appassionata e appassionante lo conferma. Ed è questa esperienza lungo la "strada del Sole" che egli augura a tutti i ragazzi che camminano per le nostre città con le cuffie colme di musica».

A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING BELLA THORNE! A heartbreaking tale of love, loss and one nearly perfect summer - perfect for fans of The Fault In Our Stars and Love, Simon. Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend. It isn't until after nightfall that Katie's world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going. Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life - and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance. As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them - and everyone around them - forever.

Every year, Italy swells with millions of tourists who infuse the economy with billions of dollars and almost outnumber Italians themselves. In fact, Italy has been a model tourist destination for longer than it has been a modern state.The Beautiful Country explores the enduring popularity of “destination Italy,” and its role in the development of the global mass tourism industry. Stephanie Malia Hom tracks the evolution of this particular touristic imaginary through texts, practices, and spaces, beginning with the guidebooks that frame Italy as an idealized land of leisure and finishing with destination Italy's replication around the world. Today, more tourists encounter Italy through places like Las Vegas's The Venetian Hotel and Casino or Dubai's Mercato shopping mall than experience the country in Italy itself. Using an interdisciplinary methodology that includes archival research, ethnographic fieldwork, literary criticism, and spatial analysis,The Beautiful Country reveals destination Italy's paramount role in the creation of modern mass tourism.

Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, “my yoke is sweet and my burden is light,” he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?” A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.” At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her “a saint for our times.” Chiara entrusted her first baby to the blessed Virgin, but felt as though this child was not hers to keep. Soon, it was revealed her daughter had life-threatening abnormalities. Despite universal pressure to abort, Chiara gave birth to a beautiful girl who died within the hour. A year later, the death of her second child came even more quickly. Yet God was preparing their hearts for more—more sorrow and more grace. While pregnant a third time, Chiara developed a malignant tumor. She refused to jeopardize the life of her unborn son by undergoing treatments during the pregnancy. Chiara waited until after Francesco was safely born, and then began the most intense treatments of radiation and chemotherapy, but it was soon clear that the cancer was terminal. Almost immediately after giving birth to Francesco, Chiara’s tumor became terminal and caused her to lose the use of her right eye. Her body was tested, and so was her soul as she suffered through terrible dark nights. She said “yes” to everything God sent her way, becoming a true child of God. And as her days on earth came to an end, Enrico looked down on his wife and said, “If she is going to be with Someone who loves her more than I, why should I be upset?” Each saint has a special charisma, a particular facet of God that is reflected through her. Chiara’s was to be a witness to joy in the face of great adversity, the kind which makes love overflow despite the sorrow from loss and death.

A year before his untimely death, Jean-Claude Izzo penned his masterpiece: this dramatic story of a man’s search for human intimacy. Rico has been banished to society’s margins; he has neither a roof over his head nor a steady income on which to depend. When a friend and fellow vagabond dies of exposure after a night spent in the Paris metro, Rico decides to flee the northern cold for his beloved south, for Marseilles and the warmth of the Mediterranean. Diverted and hindered along the way, he suffers the vagaries of human cruelty and pettiness, and is warmed by occasional, fleeting instances of human tenderness. His return to the Mediterranean is simultaneously a homecoming and a pilgrimage in search of lost love, innocence, and humanity. From the celebrated author of the Marseilles trilogy, this is both an affecting on-the-road novel and a tender exploration of love’s power both to heal and to destroy.

Questo e un libro forte, intenso, profondo; e un testo impegnativo, ma non tanto per lo stile di scrittura, che ho cercato di rendere sempre il piA' fluido e scorrevole possibile, quanto piuttosto per i suoi contenuti: ho voluto infatti rivisitare il percorso di ricerca interiore che ho portato avanti per lungo tempo, per arrivare a spiegare, esponendomi in prima persona e senza riserve, chi sono oggi e perche, anche se questo ha talvolta comportato il dover mettere in discussione anche quello che solitamente si tende a dare per scontato, e affrontare determinati aspetti dell'esistenza con cui non e propriamente indolore trovarsi a fare i conti
