I leoni di Sicilia. Edizione speciale illustrata

(Special illustrated edition of The Sicily's Lions)

Casa Editrice Nord, November 2020, pp.448

The book contains more than 300 black-and-white pictures of various sizes, from half a page to an eighth of a page. Some will be real images – places, events, historical characters – but most of them will be suggestively evocative, like those in 19th-century illustrated novels. This option respects the format of the novel and allows the reader who has already read the book to re-imagine the events. In addition to the illustrations there will be two maps: a large, colour one of Palermo and a full-page black-and-white one of the Via dei Materassai district.

Stefania Auci

Stefania Auci was born in Trapani but for a long time now has been living in Palermo, where she works as a special needs teacher. Her novel I Leoni di Sicilia [The Florios of Sicily], which has enjoyed tremendous success (it was on the bestseller list for over a hundred weeks and is being translated in 32 countries), tells the story of the Florios until the mid 19th century and has conquered readers through the passion with which it’s been able to present the conflicting, enthralling vitality of this family. A passion that also runs through L’inverno dei Leoni, the second and concluding part of the saga, which reveals in full the myth of the Florios, making us relive an era, a world and a destiny that has no equal.
