L'abbraccio più forte / Valerio Berruti ; testi di Valerio Berruti e Piero Negri Scaglione

Roma : Gallucci, 2020

Résumé: Ora che gli abbracci sono proibiti è ancora più importante non mollare. Diamoci dunque "L'abbraccio più forte", quello dell'amicizia, della solidarietà, della fratellanza interpretata dai due bambini protagonisti di questo libro d'arte. Un libro animato, che prende vita quando viene sfogliato velocemente. Un flip book, appunto. Con una storia più che eloquente. Tutto nasce da un'iniziativa dell'artista: regalare un disegno a chiunque facesse una donazione di importo pari o superiore a 300 euro a favore della Fondazione Nuovo Ospedale Alba-Bra Onlus e del nuovo Covid Hospital di Verduno, riferimento piemontese per fronteggiare l'emergenza Coronavirus. In meno di una settimana sono stati così raccolti circa 250 mila euro con 700 disegni (pastelli a olio e smalto su cartoncino, 36x21cm) tutti diversi tra loro e creati appositamente per l'occasione. I disegni sono diventati fotogrammi di una videoanimazione realizzata con circa 700 frame, in numero pari alle donazioni ricevute. Il libro, uno speciale flipbook che con il movimento delle pagine riproduce l'animazione, contiene il nome di ogni donatore e ha la prefazione poetica di Piero Negri Scaglione, autore e giornalista, conterraneo di Berruti. Età di lettura: da 6 anni.

A girl returned / Donatella Di Pietrantonio ; translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein

New York : Europa, 2019

Résumé: “I was the Arminuta, the girl returned. I spoke another language, I no longer knew who I belonged to. The word ‘mama’ stuck in my throat like a toad. And, nowadays, I really have no idea what kind of place mother is. It is not mine in the way one might have good health, a safe place, certainty.” Told with an immediacy and a rare expressive intensity that has earned it countless adoring readers and one of Italy’s most prestigious literary prizes, A Girl Returned is a powerful novel rendered with sensitivity and verve by Ann Goldstein, translator of the works of Elena Ferrante. Set against the stark, beautiful landscape of Abruzzo in central Italy, this is a compelling story about mothers and daughters, about responsibility, siblings, and caregiving. Without warning or explanation, an unnamed 13-year-old girl is sent away from the family she has always thought of as hers to live with her birth family: a large, chaotic assortment of individuals whom she has never met and who seem anything but welcoming. Thus begins a new life, one of struggle, tension, and conflict, especially between the young girl and her mother. But in her relationship with Adriana and Vincenzo, two of her newly acquired siblings, she will find the strength to start again and to build a new and enduring sense of self.

Becoming / Michelle Obama

New York : Crown, 2018

Résumé: In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Dracula / Bram Stoker

London : Harper Press, 2011

Collins classics

Résumé: Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiancé Mina of the Count’s supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts. Meanwhile in England, Mina’s friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy’s, Seward, and Lucy’s fiancé Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina’s life. Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker’s Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.

New York : Anchor Books, 2010

Matthew is rising to the challenge of married life with newfound strength and resolve, while Domenica epitomizes the loneliness of the long-distance intellectual. Cyril, the gold-toothed star of the whole show, succumbs to the kind of romantic temptation that no dog can resist and creates a small problem, or rather six of them, for his friend and owner Angus Lordie.

Nineteen eighty-four / George Orwell

London : Penguin, 2008

Résumé: 'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thriteen.' Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101... Nineteen Eight-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. 'More relevant to today than almost any other book that you can think of.' - Jo Brand 'Right up there among my favourite books. . . I read it again and again.' - Margaret Atwood

Dodgson, Charles Lutwidge

Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking-glass / Lewis Carroll ; illustrations by John Tenniel ; introduction and notes by Michael Irwin

Ware : Wordsworth, 2001

Wordsworth classics

Résumé: This selection of Carroll's works includes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, both containing the famous illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. No greater books for children have ever been written. The simple language, dreamlike atmosphere, and fantastical characters are as appealing to young readers today as ever they were. Meanwhile, however, these apparently simple stories have become recognised as adult masterpieces, and extraordinary experiments, years ahead of their time, in Modernism and Surrealism. Through wordplay, parody and logical and philosophical puzzles, Carroll engenders a variety of sub-texts, teasing, ominous or melancholy. For all the surface playfulness there is meaning everywhere. The author reveals himself in glimpses.

Animal farm / George Orwell ; edited by Ronald Carter

Harmondsworth : Penguin Books, 1999

Penguin student edition

Résumé: When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. Orwell’s chilling ‘fairy story’ is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.
