A great adventure in the name of true friendship October 2013 Pages: 536 Hope is thirteen years old, she has green eyes and red hair. She doesn t know who her parents are, she has forgotten her own past and she has no idea how she arrived in Kaerlud after the Dark Wars destroyed the world. She may seem like an ordinary orphan, but she s is not: Hope has the incredible power to create fire simply by opening her hands. Considered a witch and rejected by everyone, Hope finds out that the Gods have a devastating plan in mind: they want to regain control of the Earth and to exterminate the descendants of Prometheus. The Immortals are ready to use any means necessary, including the most terrible ones, and to unleash monsters and other diabolic creatures to achieve their goals. In an epic journey through labyrinths and lost underwater cities, Hope will have to face up to her destiny as the Chosen One and will have to give the wise Guardians of Time and the valiant warriors of Nazar a reason to fight.

4 IL PIANETA SENZA BACI (E SENZA BICI) After Acqua Dolce (20,000 copies sold, awarded the Premio Biblioteche di Roma) and Magica Amicizia (shortlisted for the Premio Bancarellino 2012), here is the new novel for young readers by the author-musician Italian schools love the most (the author-musician most loved by Italian schools) August 2013 Pages: 120 Mattia is eleven and has always wanted a cat. So, when one night he finds a cat in his garden, the temptation is too strong and he adopts it. Little Fusolo, however, is an alien and it brings Mattia to planet Blue, a hyper technological world where even children can drive motorbikes and fly using a helihelmet. Nevertheless, very soon Mattia will have to face the strict, unbending rules of that world: animals are banned, strangers are viewed with suspicion and things like eating, running, laughing and even kissing are strictly forbidden. A children s book that speaks to adults too, so that grown-ups don t not forget that children have the right to be children, and adults have the right to be free, colourful and emotionally touched. «In Andrea Bouchard s novels, the imagination of youth takes over and transforms the world of adults, showing us the things that really matter».

6 IL VIVA VERDI Giuseppe Verdi s story as it has never been told before: narrated live, immersed in the atmosphere of the time and enriched with rare, unknown details. The book everyone will be talking about this autumn, on the occasion of the bicentennial anniversary of Verdi s birth. September 2013 Pages: 264 In 1879, after seven years of silence, Giuseppe Verdi goes back to Milan to conduct a triumphant performance of his Messa da Requiem. Everybody is wondering whether he will write something new; however, Verdi seems more interested in travelling, taking care of his business and his estate. After many unsuccessful attempts, even his publisher, Giulio Ricordi, does not doesn t know what else to do. To lure the composer, he proposes an opera based on Shakespeare s play Othello. Ricordi already has a librettist in mind: Arrigo Boito, a poet, musician and the author of Mefistofele. But why does Verdi speak ill of him? Vivacious, ironic, enjoyable and packed with unpublished anecdotes, Il Viva Verdi is the portrait of an age and a city that were changeable and hectic, and in which art met popular taste in unique, unforgettable, sublime ways. «A blend of fiction and History told by an exceptional narrator, scapigliato Arrigo Boito». La Repubblica JACOPO GHILARDOTTI Jacopo Ghilardotti is a bookseller in Milan, the city where he was born fifty years ago. He is a television writer for Sky Classica.

Edo will live a unique experience that will allow him to get to know the great champions of the time: Altobelli, Beccalossi and Eugenio Bersellini, nicknamed the Iron Sergeant. «This book helps us understand what the real dream of a child is». Javier Zanetti «This book brought back the memories of my magic Inter. Children who love football will love it». Evaristo Beccalossi «The younger football fans are, the nicer they are. For them, football is a beautiful fairy tale without end». Eugenio Bersellini. GABRIELLA GREISON Gabriella Greison was born in Milan in the mid-1970s.

8 L ARCHITETTURA SEGRETA DEL MONDO The darkest Inspector of Italian crime fiction Esoteric just like Robert Langdon, but absolutely Italian to the bone. Fascinating just like Montalbano, but with long hair An insoluble irresolvable case reminiscent of the Harry Quebert Affair, with evil coming from the past January 2013 Pages: 350 If a tourist drowns in water less than one metre deep, while some hundred bathers frolicked were frolicing in the sea, and nobody paid was paying any attention to her, it is quite possibly a homicide. This is exactly what Inspector Sensi maintains, partly because he is eager to start working on a case, any case, to forget his personal problems, even if only for a little while. Thus, when the tourist dies mysteriously, even her husband and colleagues don t look too surprised. To unearth the truth, Inspector Sensi and his team will have to run from Liguria to England and Sicily, with unexpected twists and turns that will keep you turning pages with bated breath. SUSANNA RAULE Susanna Raule is 32 years old. She is a psychologist, a translator and a web consultant, and has been writing comic scripts since In 2010, her novel L ombra del commissario Sensi was among the winners of the ILo Scrittore literary award, a writing contest organised by Gruppo Editoriale Mauri Spagnol.

9 RIME RAMINGHE A new poetry collection by Bruno Tognolini, who was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the Premio Andersen Il Mondo dell Infanzia 2011 for his Rime di rabbia January 2013 Pages: 350 Fifty poems without borders, verses that travel and roam. Rhymes that are written for a reason, or for a person, and end up travelling the world used by everyone. Verses that never stop, surpass the poet s intentions and... thus turn into Rime raminghe (Wandering rhymes). A poetry collection that enchants the reader with its sparkling creativity and the joyous and playful richness of its poetic language. An intensely heartfelt and indignant tone characterises the poems, which also display Tognolini s deep civic engagement. «He is the most self-aware and qualified heir of Gianni Rodari s lesson». W. Fochesato, Andersen «Bruno Tognolini s nursery rhymes are written and donated to children as if they were tools for the soul or divining rods». L Unità «Bruno Tognolini is an experienced Nursery Rhyme-r and a Magician-Poet». Il Segnalibro «Even adults could benefit from Tognolini s nursery rhymes».

11 NON-FICTION LA REPUBBLICA SIAMO NOI A new civic book by an author who has sold over 300,000 copies in Italy A precious instrument to turn the Italian Constitution into a civil emotion: deep as the Italian Resistance it originated from and full as the dignity it brings us every day September 2013 Pages: 208 The Italian Constitution represents our nation s the fundamental laws of our nation; it is a unique document, written almost seventy years ago and still poignant and meaningful today. Two associations, Libertà e Giustizia (Freedom and Justice) and the Associazione Nazionale Magistrati (The National Association of Magistrates), have worked in secondary schools, involving students and teachers in a project that explored the highest civic values. The project results are presented in this book.

A «cultural bridge» that has connected ancient and modern world. With his unique style, Flavio Oreglio narrates the greatest scientific revolution mankind has ever known, asking the right questions, approaching it with an unprejudiced, open mind and, every now and then, a hearty laugh. «With his irreverent style, Oreglio narrates the origins of writing, astronomy and medicine. And it doesn t sound like a small accomplishment to me!» Il Venerdì di Repubblica «The scientist-actor-philosopher embarks on an undertaking of titanic proportions: to give us small and intriguing glimpses of the universe».

13 NON-FICTION MOZART ERA UN FIGO, BACH ANCORA DI PIÙ Classical music is far «cooler» (and makes you «cooler») than pop music: it makes films absorbing and commercials memorable; it has a calming effect on the mind and on babies in the womb; it is packed full with rhythm, harmony, genius and insanity October 2013 Pages: 224 The so-called «classical» musicians are far from boring. Rather, they are fascinating personalities who deserve to be known. Who was Mozart? Who was Bach? How did they manage to compose their unforgettable melodies? Their music used to excite millions of people and it still does so today. Packed with anecdotes and stories from the lives of great musicians, the book also touches upon what music is and how it works and offers suggestions on what to listen to begin a journey of discovery in the magical realm of the art of sounds.
