The late Mattia Pascal by Luigi Pirandello( Book )

Pietra miliare della narrativa del XX secolo, "Il fu Mattia Pascal" racconta di uno sfaccendato bibliotecario di un ipotetico paesino della Liguria, odiato da moglie e suocera e con un occhio strabico, simbolo inequivocabile di uno sguardo deformante sul reale. La vicenda si svolge tutta sotto il segno del fortuito e dell'imprevisto. Imprevisto è il suo stesso matrimonio, cui finisce obbligato dall'eccessiva disponibilità alle occorrenze del caso. Ma sarà ancora il caso (o il diavolo?) a sottrarre Mattia alle infelici conseguenze dei suoi atti: un'eccezionale vincita al gioco e un provvido scambio di persona (o meglio, di cadavere) lo renderanno improvvisamente ricco e libero

The Tartar steppe by Dino Buzzati( Book )
29 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in Italian and held by 170 libraries worldwide
"Often likened to Kafka's The Castle, The Tartar Steppe is both a scathing critique of military life and a meditation on the human thirst for glory. It tells of young Giovanni Drogo, who is posted to a distant fort overlooking the vast Tartar steppe. Although not intending to stay, Giovanni suddenly finds that years have passed, as, almost without his noticing, he has come to share the others' wait for a foreign invasion that never happens. Over time the fort is downgraded and Giovanni's ambitions fade--until the day the enemy begins massing on the desolate steppe."--Publisher's website
Tener o ser? by Erich Fromm( Book )
44 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in Italian and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Paru aux Etats-Unis en 1976, cet ouvrage d'Erich Fromm approfondit et étend sa recherche dans le domaine de la psychanalyse humaniste, en se concentrant sur l'analyse de l'égoïsme et de l'altruisme en tant qu'orientations fondamentales du caractère. Il part du constat de l'échec de "la grande promesse d'un progrès illimité" qui caractérise un monde dominé par la passion de l'##avoir##, donc de l'agressivité, et trace les grandes lignes d'un programme de changements socio-économiques pouvant faire naître une réflexion constructive: une orientation vers le mode de l'##être##, fondé sur l'amour, l'accomplissement spirituel, le plaisir de partager. L'analyse est empirique, à la fois psychologique et sociale. Gabriel Marcel, dans ##Etre et avoir##, pour sa part, s'est situé sur un plan théologique et philosophique

While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci--clues visible for all to see--yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion--an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others. In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret--and an explosive historical truth--will be lost forever

One day in Calcutta a rickshaw puller took internationally bestselling author Dominique Lapierre to one of the poorest and most over-populated areas of this haunting city, where five million people live out their lives on the streets. The district was called Anand Nagar -- the City of Joy -- and being there would change the writer's life forever. At the heart of this extremely poor community, Lapierre found more heroism, more love, more sharing, and ultimately, more happiness than in many a city of the affluent West. Above all, he was overwhelmed to discover that this seemingly inhuman place had the magical power to produce heroes and heroines of all ages and from all walks of life. For Calcutta is the home not only of such saints as Mother Teresa, but also of countless other inspiring people, who are ordinary and completely unknown

A major bestseller in Italy, this is a heroic young man's 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 why cancer levels there have skyrocketed in recent years. Author Saviano, who saw his first murder at age 14, worked under cover to investigate the Camorra's control of Chinese factories contracted to manufacture fashion goods, legally and illegally, for distribution around the world, and relates how the abusive handling of toxic waste is causing devastating pollution not only for Naples but also China and Somalia.--From publisher description of the English translation
