Vigiles in tenebris era il loro motto. Combattevano nell'ombra per la gloria di RomaDopo secoli la loro fortezza è tornata alla luceLibia, rovine di Leptis Magna, 1932. Nell'area in prossimità di importanti scavi archeologici fervono i preparativi per la visita ufficiale dell'erede al trono dei Savoia. Ma Alcide Saviani, l'archeologo che dirige i lavori, non è disposto a interrompere gli scavi per l'arrivo del principe. Proprio sotto al perimetro della Basilica dei Severi ha infatti rinvenuto una struttura dalle forme anomale, che per nessun motivo dovrebbe trovarsi lì. Ampie sale, mosaici giganteschi, lunghe camerate intervallate da iscrizioni in pietra che raccontano la storia di eroi capaci di parlare con gli dèi, di manipolare i metalli e di leggere i segni delle intemperie. Soldati dalle armature bianche come la neve e le tuniche nere come la notte, invisibili e vigili nelle tenebre durante la lunga storia della gloria di Roma. E dopo tanti secoli di oblio la loro fortezza segreta potrebbe finalmente tornare alla luce...Roberto Genovesiè giornalista professionista, scrittore e sceneggiatore.

Legion of Videssos
Author: Harry Turtledove
Publisher: Del Rey
Since the Roman legion had been mysteriously transported to this world of magic, tribune Marcus Scaurus had served the rulers of war-torn Videssos well. He had been largely responsible for ousting the Pretender and putting Thorish Gavras on the throne. That, of course, made him a hero. Rome or Videssos, however, Fortune was a fickle goddess. Now he and the legion were returning in triumph to Videssos the city after defeating a well-entrenched army of rebel mercenaries. But Marcus, betrayed by the one closest to him, was returning to be seized, dragged before the Emperor, and questioned under truth-drug like a traitor. Of the court, only Alypia Gavra stuck by him -- but consorting with the Emperor's niece was dangerous. It could lead to exile -- or death! Yet Alypia was attractive. And Marcus was lonely . . . From the Paperback edition.

From Washington, D.C., to Canterbury Cathedral to the island of Malta, they must follow the clues of the quatrains if they are to discover the truth, ward off a global conflagration, and stay alive. “Part Dan Brown, part Indiana Jones, and part James Bond . . .

Stride's police partner, Maggie Bei, doubts the homeless girl, who has been living rough on the streets of Duluth since her mother's death--and now sleeps with a knife hidden under her pillow. As Stride investigates Cat's story, more violence trails in the teenager's wake--and Maggie's suspicions about her deepen.

Drama. Italian Studies. Translated from the Italian by Thomas Simpson. In its first founding manifestoes of the 1980s, Teatro delle Albe defined itself as "Politttttttical Theatre," with seven t's, to declare with irreverent irony its distance from the era's reigning, ideologically muscle-bound political theatre, turgid and smug in its certainties and judgements. Because in Italian the word 'politico' means 'political' but the word 'polittico,' with two t's, means 'polyptych' – that is, a painting consisting of multiple images – the invention of the ironic term 'politttttttico' also intended to trumpet the urgency of observing Italy's community (the polis) from multiple viewpoints, fixing a fiercely ingenuous gaze on a plural reality. Unafraid of finding surprise in the ordinary, the company declared that it would create theatrical actions composed of multifaceted representations, aimed at an audience in search of questions rather than confirmation of received thought. "The heretical approach to politically committed theatre carries on in RUMORE DI ACQUE, the monologue composed in 2010 by Teatro delle Albe's playwright and director, Marco Martinelli."—Franco Nasi
