  • A presentation of Emma D’Aquino’s new book about Nino Marano, a man who spent 49 years in prison. It all started with stolen peppers and eggplants. After being arrested and imprisoned, it’s in prison that Nino became a murderer and never got out. Alternating between moments of hope for redemption and recurring episodes of violence. The sentence gets longer and it becomes almost an excuse to commit new crimes. A difficult and controversial story that opens up to many reflections.
  • Gioacchino Lanza Tomasi, Lampedusa's cousin and heir, has published a new illustrated biography, which includes unpublished pictures from The Leopard's author's private albums and documents from his family archive. The book is an essential tool to further understand Lampedusa's work and the back history of one of the most famous historical novels of all time.
