- A real taste of Italy! - Alessandro Frassica's pan'ini features the best of Italian ingredients and raw foods from the best possible producers - A pan'ino is not just a random object - the sandwich finds a complexity of flavors that can thrill in just one bite What could be more simple than a pan'ino? Take some bread and butter, slice it through the middle and fill it. Seen in this way, the sandwich is almost an "anti-cuisine," a nomadic shortcut that allows for speed and little thought. But when Alessandro Frassica thinks about his pan'ino, he considers it in a different way, not as a short-cut, but as an instrument for telling stories, creating layers of tales right there between the bread and its butter. Because even if the sandwich is simple, it is not necessarily so easy to create. Alessandro searches for ingredients, in the raw foods he finds people: producers of pecorino cheese from Benevento, anchovies from Cetara, 'nduja spicy salami from Calabria. Then, he studies the combinations, the consistencies and the temperature, because a pan'ino is not just a random object; savoury must be complemented by sweet; tapenade softens and provides moisture; bread should be warmed but not dried; thus the sandwich becomes a simple way of saying many excellent things; including finding a complexity of flavors that can thrill in just one bite. Contents: Introduction; Classic pan'ini; Vegetarian pan'ini; Fish pan'ini; Ingredients; Bread.

The award-winning screenwriter Filippo Bologna's first novel is a dark and witty environmental satire set in sun-drenched Tuscany. A small and idyllic Tuscan village is cast into disarray by the arrival of Otto Gattai, a larger-than-life, greedy and ruthless businessman who has come to turn its legendary baths into a luxury spa. The young Federico, descendant of the noble Cremona family, loathes his family's participation in the transformation of this antique citadel, and of the lives of its inhabitants. Federico and his girlfriend Lea take action, and when peaceful protests prove inadequate, they and their friends wage a guerrilla war against Gattai. Published by Pushkin Press, Howard Curtis's How I Lost the War (Come ho perso la guerra) was shortlisted for the 2012 Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize. Bologna's second novel, The Parrots, will be published by Pushkin Press in 2013.

Why are Sunnis and Shiites fighting each other if both are Muslim? Can Europe rely on Iran, which is pursuing an atomic bomb? Is the West aware of the dangers it faces between the violent fanaticism of the caliph and the disguised expansionism of the ayatollah? Above all, will it be able to defend itself? These questions should not only interest politicians and intellectuals, since they affect our daily lives as Westerners. Almost every day, the media report a new jihadist attack or a further Iranian violation of the nuclear deal. However, ISIS massacres and aggressive Iranian expansionism are still perceived as events with obscure and irrational motivations. The choice of foreign fighters, who leave the comforts of what they perceive as our "empty and corrupt" society for the black flag and the ideal of "purity" of the Islamic State, seems equally illogical to us. While exploring the genesis of this gloomy scenario, this book underlines that there may be a glimpse of light. This is because Arab countries are now discovering that they have a shared interest--both with each other and with the West--to uproot extremist Shiite and Sunni terror. Paradoxically, the history of the Middle East and the relations between the Western world and Islam have never proved so open to a turning point as they do today.
