Il vescovo si interruppe per un improvviso scoppio di grida che si era levato fra gli uomini. Tutti erano in piedi e osservavano lo strato di neve gelata che rivestiva la superficie del lago, dal quale giungevano sommessi scricchiolii e gemiti preoccupanti. "Il ghiaccio!" gridò qualcuno. "Si spacca!".

In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingway's last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John O'Hara in The New York Times Book Review to call him “the most important author since Shakespeare.”

But what do we really know about other people? Set against the stunning Sardinian landscape of rugged mountains and villages lost in time, this internationally bestselling novel is a multi-generational family saga about love, lust and country. An young unnamed woman reflects the life of her grandmother, a bewitching and eccentric figure whose abiding search for love spans much of the twentieth century. In 1943, as American bombs fall on the city of Cagliari, the young woman’s grandmother is thirty and already considered an old maid, unmarried and still living at home with her parents. But when the bombing ceases, and despite her protests, her father forces her to marry the first man to propose, an older widower she doesn’t love. After suffering several miscarriages, she is sent for treatment at a spa on the mainland, where she falls in love with an injured Italian army veteran and nine months later gives birth to a son. Attributing the pregnancy to her spa treatment, she returns to her husband and never reveals the affair. Decades later, she returns to the mainland and travels to her former lover’s hometown of Milan. Dressed in her finest coat and shoes, she wanders the streets in search of the elusive veteran. A bittersweet story of love and loss and a moving tribute to the power of storytelling, From the Land of the Moon is the powerful English debut of one of Italy’s most important new literary talents.

Tra gli Ordini monastico-militari nati durante le Crociate l’Ordine dei Cavalieri dell’Ospedale della Casa di Santa Maria dei teutonici è, insieme a quello del Tempio, il più noto e il meno compreso, vittima dei miti nazionalistici opposti di tedeschi, polacchi e russi.Furono i cavalieri teutonici ad aprire alla Storia le terre dell’Europa settentrionale bagnate dal Baltico, con conseguenze che durano ancor oggi, così come i castelli, le fortezze e le città da loro costruiti. I due volumi che formano l'opera contengono la prima traduzione mai effettuata in italiano dell’Ordensbuch, comprendente gli Statuti e la Regola dell’Ordine Teutonico nella più antica versione nota, quella medio tedesca del 1264, documento fondamentale per comprendere la vera essenza dell’Ordine, insieme ad un’approfondita analisi della storia dei Teutonici e del ruolo svolto nella conquista e nell’evangelizzazione del Balticodal XIII al XVI secolo.In questo modo si potrà comprendere appieno la duplice natura di monaci e di guerrieri, dei Cavalieri dalla Croce nera.

Grande era la lotta, piccoli gli uomini che dovevano combatterla, e non era certamente per caso che la Croce, strumento di dolore e di umiliazione, fosse assurta a simbolo della fede cristiana. Ma anche la spada era una croce, e recava incisa sulla lama una scritta eloquente: Deus manum ducit.
