Rosanna Chiofalo's poignant, beautifully written novel evokes the stunning scenery of Sicily and the Aeolian Islands and tells of mothers and daughters, love and sacrifice--and the choices that resound across continents and through generations. Julia Parlatone doesn't have much to remember her Italian mother by. A grapevine that Sarina planted still flourishes in the backyard of Julia's childhood home in Astoria, Queens. And there's a song, "Stella Mia," she recalls her mother singing--my star, my star, you are the most beautiful star--until the day she left three-year-old Julia behind and returned to Italy for good. Now a happily married school teacher, Julia tries not to dwell on a past she can't change or on a mother who chose to leave. But in an old trunk in the family basement, she discovers items that belonged to her mother--a song book, Tarot cards, a Sicilian folk costume--and a diary. Sarina writes unflinchingly of her harsh childhood and of a first, passionate love affair;of blissful months spent living in the enchanting coastal resort town of Taormina and the unspoiled Aeolian Islands north of Sicily as well as the reasons she came to New York. By the diary's end, Julia knows she must track down her mother in Italy and piece together the rest of the complex, bittersweet truth--a journey that, for better or worse, will change her own life forever. Praise For The Novels Of Rosanna Chiofalo Carissima "What a glorious novel this is. It's a celebration of life, love and unlikely friendship through the eyes of two very different women. Yet their similarities bind them together and will endear them to readers long after the last page is turned. Bravissima for Carissima!" --Susan Wiggs, # 1 New York Times bestselling author "Fantastico! I couldn't put it down!" --Lisa Jackson, # 1 New York Times bestselling author Bella Fortuna "Chiofalo brings the Italian immigrant community and neighborhoods richly to life." --Publishers Weekly "Reading Rosanna Chiofalo's depiction of a modern Italian-American family is like digging into a fresh bowl of pasta--warm, welcome, and satisfying. A deeply felt debut that affirms the importance of friends and family--Italian-style." --Lisa Verge Higgins, author of Random Acts of Kindness "Well-drawn characters. . .A charmer." --BookPage "Sometimes tough, sometimes tender, always heartfelt and honest, Bella Fortuna is a lively, finely-stitched tale of life and love, family and friendship, and a zest for cose Italiane!" --Peter Pezzelli, author of Home to Italy

The word is nearly ubiquitous: at the grocery store we shop for "sustainable foods" that were produced from "sustainable agriculture"; groups ranging from small advocacy organizations to city and state governments to the United Nations tout "sustainable development" as a strategy for local and global stability; and woe betide the city-dweller who doesn't aim for a "sustainable lifestyle." Seeming to have come out of nowhere to dominate the discussion-from permaculture to renewable energy to the local food movement-the ideas that underlie and define sustainability can be traced back several centuries. In this illuminating and fascinating primer, Jeremy L. Caradonna does just that, approaching sustainability from a historical perspective and revealing the conditions that gave it shape. Locating the underpinnings of the movement as far back as the 1660s, Caradonna considers the origins of sustainability across many fields throughout Europe and North America. Taking us from the emergence of thoughts guiding sustainable yield forestry in the late 17th and 18th centuries, through the challenges of the Industrial Revolution, the birth of the environmental movement, and the emergence of a concrete effort to promote a balanced approach to development in the latter half of the 20th century, he shows that while sustainability draws upon ideas of social justice, ecological economics, and environmental conservation, it is more than the sum of its parts and blends these ideas together into a dynamic philosophy. Caradonna's book broadens our understanding of what "sustainability" means, revealing how it progressed from a relatively marginal concept to an ideal that shapes everything from individual lifestyles, government and corporate strategies, and even national and international policy. For anyone seeking understand the history of those striving to make the world a better place to live, here's a place to start.

Il romanzo che riscopre una straordinaria figura femminile sullo sfondo del Rinascimento italiano Si respira aria di melodramma in questo romanzo che, tra Storia e invenzione, riporta in vita passioni e intrighi del Rinascimento italiano e una straordinaria figura femminile a lungo dimenticata. Siamo a Lucca, città dalle cento torri e dalle cento chiese, dai bastioni possenti, ricchissima e spietata, devota e ribelle, fiera della sua indipendenza. Nel 1515, proprio a Lucca, nasce una donna simile alla sua città, orgogliosa e non domata, condannata a una vita controcorrente dal suo stesso essere donna e da un precoce talento poetico. Figlia di mercanti che esportano le loro finissime stoffe in tutta Europa, Chiara Matraini non è nobile né cortigiana, le sole condizioni che le permetterebbero un riconoscimento pubblico. Nel suo destino c’è un futuro di moglie e madre con un’oscura vita tra le mura di un palazzo. Invece Chiara, forte degli studi che i genitori le hanno consentito, decide di diventare una letterata, di più, una poetessa, pubblicando con il suo nome un volume di Rime che ottiene molti consensi. Una scelta che paga duramente, senza smettere mai di lottare, per amore del figlio, della poesia e dell’uomo a cui si lega dopo la morte del marito, suscitando scandalo. Attorno a lei, un mondo in rapido cambiamento, tra la scoperta di terre fino ad allora sconosciute, la finanza nascente, le inquietudini artistiche, le guerre di dominio e gli aspri conflitti religiosi.

What is it in the operatic Italian psyche that allows-indeed, forgives, even applauds-Italy’s premier for conducting a lifestyle as decadent as a Fellini extravaganza, while organizing an ongoing string of questionable behaviors and politically incorrect gaffes not seen since the days of Nero? All this, and yet Mr. Berlusconi remains completely “understood” by so many of his countrymen-some of whom keep coming back for more! Best-selling writer Beppe Severgnini, who by explaining America to Italians humorously immortalized American behavior in his book Ciao, America!, now trains his sights on his own countrymen. Through witty yet substantive anecdotes touching on Italy’s current political and economic climate, Severgnini decodes the Italian premier’s style and appeal, exploring his rise to power and creating a compulsively readable portrait of Italy today.

“Costretti per necessità, ci si inventa agricoltori della propria mente per ricavarne raccolti di emozioni, sarti delle proprie incertezze per ricucire gli strappi delle paure, mastri d'ascia del proprio passato per riuscire a riprendere il mare, e poi calafati, fabbri, velai e nocchieri e piloti per navigare l'oceano.” Gian Paolo Totaro (1951-1994), medico, uomo “antico” di nobile melanconia, “solitario per istinto, vocazione, paura, desiderio elitario, forma culturale e finanche destino”, nella ricerca della conoscenza di sé – “strada infinita” – in preziosi, luminosi istanti di verità ha colto, e trasmette, “il senso delle cose nascosto nelle pieghe delle vita”, la “repentina ricomposizione del caos”, il “privilegio di vedere” – di contro alla frammentazione, al vuoto, al nulla – “l’insieme”.
