Nel 1946 l'Ordine dei Medici incaricò una commissione, presieduta dal Dr. Alexander Mitscherlich, di riferire sul processo ai medici condotto dal Tribunale Militare di Norimberga. Gli imputati erano alcuni medici dei campi di concentramento accusati di aver fatto esperimenti sui prigionieri, e i medici e i funzionari coinvolti nel cosiddetto programma di eutanasia che Hitler aveva lanciato per sterminare i malati di mente. Nel 1948, quando la commissione, di cui faceva parte Alice Ricciardi von Platen, pubblicò le sue spaventose relazioni, la Germania distrutta e affamata, e lo stesso Ordine dei Medici, non avevano alcun interesse a prenderne conoscenza. E quella prima documentazione non ebbe quindi la necessaria diffusione. Oggi viene qui presentata la traduzione italiana, perché pur troppo il monito del libro rimane attuale: «è certo che una sola uccisione ne provocherà altre centinaia se non si rinnega fino in fondo l'ideologia che l'ha generata».

<strong>L’amica geniale - Volume primo</strong><br /><br />Care lettrici, cari lettori, provate a leggere questo libro e vorrete che non finisca mai.<br />Elena Ferrante, con il suo nuovo romanzo, torna a sorprenderci, a spiazzarci, regalandoci una narrazione-fiume cui ci si affida come quando si fa un viaggio con un tale piacevole agio, con un tale intenso coinvolgimento, che la meta più è lontana e meglio è. L’autrice abbandona la piccola, densa storia privata e si dedica a un vasto progetto di scrittura che racconta un’amicizia femminile, quella tra Lila Cerullo ed Elena Greco, dall’infanzia a Napoli negli anni Cinquanta del secolo scorso fino a oggi.<br /><br /><em>L’amica geniale</em> comincia seguendo le due protagoniste bambine, e poi adolescenti, tra le quinte di un rione miserabile della periferia napoletana, tra una folla di personaggi minori accompagnati lungo il loro percorso con attenta assiduità. <br />L’autrice scava intanto nella natura complessa dell’amicizia tra due bambine, tra due ragazzine, tra due donne, seguendo passo passo la loro crescita individuale, il modo di influenzarsi reciprocamente, i buoni e i cattivi sentimenti che nutrono nei decenni un rapporto vero, robusto. Narra poi gli effetti dei cambiamenti che investono il rione, Napoli, l’Italia, in più di un cinquantennio, trasformando le amiche e il loro legame. <br />E tutto ciò precipita nella pagina con l’andamento delle grandi narrazioni popolari, dense e insieme veloci, profonde e lievi, rovesciando di continuo situazioni, svelando fondi segreti dei personaggi, sommando evento a evento senza tregua, ma con la profondità e la potenza di voce a cui l’autrice ci ha abituati...<br />Non vogliamo dirvi altro per non guastare il piacere della lettura.<br />Dicevamo che L’amica geniale appartiene a quel genere di libro che si vorrebbe non finisse mai. E infatti non finisce. O, per dire meglio, porta compiutamente a termine in questo primo romanzo la narrazione dell’infanzia e dell’adolescenza di Lila e di Elena, ma ci lascia sulla soglia di nuovi grandi mutamenti che stanno per sconvolgere le loro vite e il loro intensissimo rapporto. La storia si dipana nei volumi successivi, per raccontarci la giovinezza, la maturità, la vecchiaia incipiente delle due amiche.<br /><br />Godiamoci dunque anche questo altro tratto, che è costitutivo del vero lettore: il piacere assaporato e poi dilazionato, l’attesa del seguito, la speranza, tra le tante amarezze di oggi, di un po’ di dolce nel prossimo futuro.<br /><br />Buona lettura,<br />Gli editori

<p><strong>Crescere per diventare cosa, per assomigliare a chi?</strong><br /><br /><strong>Il nuovo romanzo di una scrittrice amata in tutto il mondo. </strong><br /><br />Il bel viso della bambina Giovanna si è trasformato, sta diventando quello di una brutta malvagia adolescente. Ma le cose stanno proprio così? E in quale specchio bisogna guardare per ritrovarsi e salvarsi? La ricerca di un nuovo volto, dopo quello felice dell’infanzia, oscilla tra due Napoli consanguinee che però si temono e si detestano: la Napoli di sopra, che s’è attribuita una maschera fine, e quella di sotto, che si finge smodata, triviale. Giovanna oscilla tra alto e basso, ora precipitando ora inerpicandosi, disorientata dal fatto che, su o giù, la città pare senza risposta e senza scampo.<br /><br /><i>L'estratto</i><br /><br />«Due anni prima di andarsene di casa mio padre disse a mia madre che ero molto brutta. La frase fu pronunciata sottovoce, nell’appartamento che, appena sposati, i miei genitori avevano acquistato al Rione Alto, in cima a San Giacomo dei Capri. Tutto — gli spazi di Napoli, la luce blu di un febbraio gelido, quelle parole — è rimasto fermo. Io invece sono scivolata via e continuo a scivolare anche adesso, dentro queste righe che vogliono darmi una storia mentre in effetti non sono niente, niente di mio, niente che sia davvero cominciato o sia davvero arrivato a compimento: solo un garbuglio che nessuno, nemmeno chi in questo momento sta scrivendo, sa se contiene il filo giusto di un racconto o è soltanto un dolore arruffato, senza redenzione».</p>

<p><strong>Buy the Paperback version and get the Kindle Book versions for FREE<br />It’s the biggest conundrum of language learning:</strong><br />How can you become an amazing Italian speaker when you’re short on time? It’s easy: 5 Minute Italian short stories for beginners, that is. Let’s face it: We all have limited free time. So, how can you study Italian when you have only small shards of time available? Look no further: If you’re short on time, 5 Minute Italian short stories for Beginners will help you make the most of it.<br /><br /><strong>The Benefits of 5 Minute Italian Short Stories for Beginners</strong><br />Since short stories are, by nature, short, you can use them to squeeze a lot of Italian learning into a relatively small span of time.<br />Reading short stories is a great way to get quick, informal doses of Italian language practice.<br />Easy short stories in Italian offer exposure to simple, natural sentence structure. This makes them great for beginners just getting accustomed to the language and even intermediate speakers who want to maintain their language competency.<br />Best of all, short stories make great learning tools because they’re more entertaining than a textbook. Unless you’re a grammar nerd like me, reading verb tables and agreement rules is no way to spend your 20 minutes of free time. Simply open up a short story and learn away!<br /><br /><strong>How to Learn Italian with Easy Short Stories</strong><br />Since these stories are often pretty straightforward, you’ll need a simple plan for learning effectively with them. To get the most out of your short story, I suggest this three-step approach:<br /><em><u>Read the story for the gist, not the details</u></em>. Focus on trying to understand the main ideas of the story: the characters, the major plot developments and the setting.<br /><em><u>Read it again, but this time, do a careful read</u></em>. Highlight or underline unknown words, phrases or grammatical constructions that are unfamiliar to you. Once you finish this read, translate all the unfamiliar words and phrases and write them down in a notebook or on flashcards to help you remember them later.<br /><em><u>Use the translations to read the story one final time</u></em>. This allows you to understand the text fully and have quick access to the translations and explanations.<br /><br /><strong>5 minute Italian short stories for beginners</strong><br />This book includes 25 short stories which cover everyday topics.<br />The best part is that the stories are broken into sections, and each section is followed by a word list of key translations. Again, this is perfect for those who want easy access to new vocabulary for smoother reading, and it helps readers focus their learning.<br />Better yet, each story has a subsequent summary and multiple-choice questions. These questions are great to test comprehension and reinforce your Italian learning.<br /><br /><strong>What are you waiting for? Scroll Up, Click on the "Buy Now" button!</strong></p>

Una nuova indagine per Rocco Schiavone costretto ad indagare da un letto di un ospedale per un caso di malasanità. E intanto il vicequesto ha quasi cinquant’anni, certe durezze si attenuano, forse un amore si affaccia. Sullo sfondo prendono più rilievo le vicende private della squadra. E immancabilmente un’ombra, di quell’oscurità che mai lo lascia, osserva da un angolo della strada lì fuori.
