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.

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.

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

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.
