The Further Dissention
Preface by Anna Santoro 
pp. 30
Euro: 4,13 - ISBN: 88-86358-38-5
A strong, intense story, puzzling for the freedom of the heroine’s desire. To read it is to listen to the voices coming from another time, yet so near that we can meet them at any step of our life.
The Duel
Translated by Eraldo Cortese 
pp. 75
Euro: 5,16 - ISBN: 88-86358-40-7
An all-out duel, submitted to God’s judgement, that, depending on the result, will prove the accused woman’s guilty or innocence. The result of the fight of the two knights seems at first to condemn the woman, who is sent to the stake with her defender Federico, but a final coup de théâtre reverses the situation and finally reveals the amazing trickery, of which all the protagonists were victims.
Everybody is Right…

Euro: 2,58 - ISBN: 88-86358-42-3
A fugacious meeting, an impossible love, her sweet, firm, definitive words. The ending is surprising and makes of this short story a masterpiece. Published in 1918 in the collection entitled La vita è così lunga (Life is So Long), it contains in few pages an analysis of the marital relationship and of the husband/wife roles that, beyond the stereotypes, reveals with intelligence and sensibility some unusual aspects of the marriage tie, drawing our attention to a meditation on our times.
