Agostino Lombardo prima di morire stava lavorando alla traduzione del Sogno di una notte di mezza estate, ma non ha potuto portare a termine l’opera. Nadia Fusini, che in passato era stata sua allieva, riprende la traduzione dove il suo maestro l’ha interrotta. Il risultato è nel bellissimo dramma che sa unire in felice miscela il mondo classico e quello nordico fiabesco, le allegorie rinascimentali, i romanzi cavallereschi, la tradizione greco-latina, in una vicenda dove diversi fili si intrecciano: la commedia degli equivoci con gli amori incrociati di Ermia e Lisandro, Demetrio ed Elena, il bosco fatato di Oberon e Titania (che rievocano nei loro litigi quelli di Giove e Giunone), la malizia del folletto Puck (che reputa folli gli uomini e non fa altro che far innamorare le coppie sbagliate coi filtri del suo signore), la recita degli attori-artigiani che rappresentano l’opera nell’opera (il dramma di Tiramo e Tisbe), infine il matrimonio mitologico di Teseo e Ippolita.

A groundbreaking major bestseller in Italy, Gomorrah is Roberto Saviano's gripping nonfiction account of the decline of Naples under the rule of the Camorra, an organized crime network with a large international reach and stakes in construction, high fashion, illicit drugs, and toxic-waste disposal. Known by insiders as "the System," the Camorra affects cities and villages along the Neapolitan coast, and is the deciding factor in why Campania, for instance, has the highest murder rate in all of Europe and whycancer levels there have skyrocketed in recent years. Saviano tells of huge cargoes of Chinese goods that are shipped to Naples and then quickly distributed unchecked across Europe. He investigates the Camorra's control of thousands of Chinese factories contracted to manufacture fashion goods, legally and illegally, for distribution around the world, and relates the chilling details of how the abusive handling of toxic waste is causing devastating pollution not only for Naples but also China and Somalia. In pursuit of his subject, Saviano worked as an assistant at a Chinese textile manufacturer, a waiter at a Camorra wedding, and on a construction site. A native of the region, he recalls seeing his first murder at the age of fourteen, and how his own father, a doctor, suffered a brutal beating for trying to aid an eighteen-year-old victim who had been left for dead in the street. Gomorrah is a bold and important work of investigative writing that holds global significance, one heroic young man's impassioned story of a place under the rule of a murderous organization.

When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved? To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating, and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella's life-first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever? The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
