An amazing YA novel, set in one of the many suburbs of our cities,
that tells, with pressing pace and passion, the tensions, errors, but also
the positive forces that animate boys.
Alex, “Bone” and Luca are 15 years old boys who live in one of the many suburbs of our
major cities. Mosca (Fly) is their idol, the older brother of Alex, an amateur boxer
(Hence his nickname).
The three boys, dragged from Mosca and his friends, find themselves involved in a
punitive raid against a nomad camp, during which the Novaks, a Sinti family, are
particularly hit. The Novaks are a Gipsy family coming from Germany and traditionally
work with merry-go-rounds.
A young police inspector – Salvatore Mitraglia – investigates on this act of hooliganism
- he will plunge into that “black rain”, to bring out the lights and shadows of the event,
but also to reveal the heroic role of Tony Novak, the head of the family, during World
War II.
Meanwhile, between Moscow and Myra, the oldest daughter of Novak, a striking tension
is growing, which will lead to unexpected results ...

CHARLOT AND I
author: Arianna Di Genova
illustrator: Alessandro Sanna
size: 14,5 x 19 cm
pages: 80
The book tells the true story
of Charlie Chaplin, and of the magic
that transformed a poor boy, born
in the slums of London at the end
of the nineteenth century, into a
genius of world cinema and one
of the richest men in America.
At the outset, Chaplie was just a young boy who lived from hand to mouth in a bad
neighbourhood, sharing the misery of his daily life with his step-brother Sidney.
But, unlike his companions in misfortune, he had a dream: to act, to make people laugh,
to become a great comedian. First he did it in the theater, following in the footsteps
of his parents. Then he moved to America, where the new art form that was the cinema
had been born. It was in America that Charlie became Charlot.
All it took was a very British bowler hat, over-sized shoes, a thread-bare jacket,
and a swirling walking stick; and so the eternal vagabond wandered out into the world,
hoping for a better future.
The author
Arianna di Genova, culture correspondent for Il Manifesto, an expert on the cinema and on art history,
she is the author of The Circus in Art, published by Il Saggiatore and aimed at adult readers.

ZÁTOPEK
THE HUMAN LOCOMOTIVE
author: Marco Franzelli
illustrator: Umberto Mischi
size: 14,5 x 21 cm
pages: 144
A famous sports journalist recounts the extraordinary
life of Emil Zátopek, the athlete and the man,
who from being a worker in a shoe factory, became
a record holder and a winner of olympic gold medals.
A story of dedication, determination and modesty,
both in life and in athletic competitions.
A fast paced narrative, which also takes in the history
of the twentieth century – the nazi occupation
of czechoslovakia, the initial hopes after the end
of the war, the onset of the cold war, the days
of the springtime of prague, when zatopek
courageously defended democracy.
Against the background of these events, zatopek’s
story is a wonderful example, both his stunning
victories and his defeats, which restored to sport
the highest and best sense of a school for life.
“An athlete should run with hope in his heart,
dreams in his head, and not much money in his pocket”
Emil Zátopek
A message that is more relevant than ever for young people today.

NEW TITLE 2011
ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT
Vincenzo Guarnieri
ELETTRICITTÀ
ELECTRICITY. Clean energy for a
sustainable future
publication: 2011
readership: from 9 years
pages: 161 with b&w illustrations
size: 20,5x13,5 cm
selling price: € 13.00
Light bulbs, refrigerators, heaters and stoves,
the cells of our body and the mobile phone,
computers, cars: all these things need energy
to work! Too bad that we are risking to make
our planet uninhabitable. Maybe we should take
inspiration from the people of ElectriCity: a
metropolis that works with eco-friendly,
renewable and clean sources, where cars are
electric, and every house produces more energy
than it consumes!
In a visit to the neighborhoods of a fantasy city,
and thanks to imagined dialogues with its
inhabitants, children learn all about energy:
what fossil fuels, renewable resources and
nuclear energy are, and what you can do for a
sustainable future.
