The late Mattia Pascal by Luigi Pirandello( Book )

40 editions published between 1965 and 2012 in Italian and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Fontamara by Ignazio Silone( Book )

39 editions published between 1967 and 2011 in Italian and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The setting of this novel is poverty-stricken southern Italy under Mussolini's fascist regime -- but it could easily be any time, anywhere that the helpless and dispossessed see their very existence threatened by the powers that rule and own the earth. Ignazio Silone's searingly compassionate vision of the human condition gives a fable-like quality to this story of peasants searching for a way to stop the legal theft of their vital source of water -- a story that comes to center around Berardo, the untutored, hot-tempered young man who becomes their leader and eventually a martyr. There is no idealistic rhetoric in this deeply moving novel; instead there is a blend of pungent reality and earthy humor, of cutting irony and the unsentimental facing of facts, that makes "Fontamara" one of the major works of fiction to emerge form the social, political, and economic crucible of the 1930s. -- From publisher's description

Il deserto dei Tartari by Dino Buzzati( Book )

29 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in Italian and held by 173 WorldCat member 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
To have or to be? by Erich Fromm( Book )

44 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in Italian and held by 173 WorldCat member 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

Gomorra : viaggio nell'impero economico e nel sogno di dominio della camorra by Roberto Saviano( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in Italian and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in Italian and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conservare bellezza e giovinezza a ogni costo, vivere in un infinito presente anche se il prezzo è un'infinita dannazione: la storia di Dorian Gray è probabilmente una delle più note che la letteratura abbia mai raccontato, e non c'è generazione di lettori che non si sia confrontata con la straordinaria favola per adulti scritta da Oscar Wilde. Una favola che intreccia personaggi, o meglio anime molto diverse tra di loro: da Dorian Gray, il dandy che espia il proprio edonismo con la vecchiaia, a Lord Henry, il cui spirito cinico e decadente richiama quello dello stesso Wilde. Ma proprio l'intrecciarsi di tante anime, insieme alla fortissima tensione narrativa, fa si che l'incanto del Ritratto resti intatto nonostante il passare del tempo
