Sacred stone by Clive Cussler( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in Italian and held by 6 libraries worldwide
In the remote wastes of Greenland, a young scientist has unearthed an artifact hidden in a cave for a millennium-a 50,000-year-old meteorite known as the Sacred Stone, which possesses potentially catastrophic radioactive power. But the astounding find places him in the crosshairs of two opposing terrorist groups who seek the stone for themselves. One is a group of Muslim extremists who have stolen a nuclear device. With the power of the meteorite, they could vaporize any city in the West. The other group is led by a megalomaniacal industrialist who seeks to carry out the utter annihilation of Islam itself. Caught between two militant factions bent on wholesale slaughter, Juan Cabrillo and his ship of high-tech mercenaries known as the Corporation must fight to protect the Sacred Stone-and prevent the outbreak of World War III

In a tiny stained-glass shop hidden in the backstreets of Westminster lies the cracked, sparkling image of an angel. The owners of Minster Glass have also been broken: Fran Morrison's mother died when she was a baby; a painful event never mentioned by her difficult, secretive father Edward. Fran left home to pursue a career in foreign cities, as a classical musician. But now Edward is dangerously ill and it's time to return. Taking her father's place in the shop, she and his craftsman Zac accept a beguiling commission - to restore a shattered glass picture of an exquisite angel belonging to a local church. As they reassemble the dazzling shards of coloured glass, they uncover an extraordinary love story from the Victorian past, sparked by the window's creation. Slowly, Fran begins to see her own reflection in its themes of passion, tragedy and redemption

The mirror makers by Clare Colvin( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
"In the tradition of Restoration and Tulip Fever, Clare Colvin takes a historical theme in a novel about the secret process of mirror-making and the court of Louis XIV." "The Sun King, at the height of his power and ambition, dreams of constructing a great Hall of Mirrors at the palace of Versailles, to reflect his glory. But the only craftsmen who know the secret of the mirrors are in Murano, jealously guarded by the Venetian Republic." "The King's controller of finances, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, launches a campaign of industrial espionage to steal the knowledge for the profit of France. The promise of riches, adventure, a new life, entices Andrea Allegri to join a renegade group of mirror makers and risk not only his father's wrath, but severe punishment by the Venetian authorities." "Once in the Sun King's Court, Andrea finds himself in a world where image is all, and nothing is as it seems. He is caught up, not only with palace politics, but with the beautiful and demanding Athenais de Montespan, who exerts her influence over the King by dangerous means, as well as by her maid, enigmatic Mademoiselle des Oeillets. Against the background of the building of Versailles, as it evolves from hunting lodge to palace of monumental grandeur, the characters play out their roles of love and deception, in thrall to the charisma of the monarch with absolute power."--BOOK JACKET
