Homo Sapiens

UNESCO – World heritage Atlas

Physical isolation, expansions and migrations have been the key features of human evolution. Two millions of years ago, Homo species started to spread out of Africa at various times, putting together the mosaic of our diversity. The young Homo sapiens species, the last one to be born in Africa, who spread all over the world, is one of the main characters of this choral score. This fascinating journey of humanity is told in this first geographic atlas of the human peopling of Earth.

“Heritage is our link to the past, what we live today and what we will hand on future generations”. These words, that UNESCO tell to the world, sum up the meaning of what was decided 40 years ago, when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization agreed on the protection of those places in the world that could represent, for cultural or natural criteria, a heritage to humanity. On this important occasion, UNESCO commissioned De Agostini to make this outstanding atlas to map and illustrate the sites.

Frecce Tricolori Italian Air Force acrobatic team The Frecce Tricolori, the Italian elite formation flying team, are one of the most beloved and representative emblems of our country. Their spectacular maneuvers amaze us every time we admire them flying. But how did they get such a precision? Who are the men, which are the means? Who are those who put pilots in a position to fly safely? What is the history of the Air Force acrobatic team? All these questions and many others are met in these volumes, made in collaboration with Frecce Tricolori. Besides the illustrated book, updated on the occasion of the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy, there is also a DVD edition, with over 170 minutes of unreleased footage, some of which shot with the spectacular GO-PRO movie camera.

Aeronautica Militare Air Force

Trattato di scenotecnica An essay on stagecraft

Made in collaboration with the National Italian Air Force, two titles that offer a privileged insight of the mission, the organization, the history, the military operations, the international efforts, the staff, the facilities and the technology which made the Air Force a leading strength in the international scene. The book also showcases tables of all the divisions and the airplanes: from the Eurofighter 2000 Typhoon to the F-16A, from the Tornado to the C-2J7 and the C-130J, until the very last flying tests on the T-346A. The deluxe edition also features two 1:100 scale models of the C-130J and the Eurofighter 2000 Typhoon.

Originating in the 5th century BC, the art of stagecraft has evolved and improved over the centuries to reach levels that are difficult to overtake. After some historical notes on set design, the book describes in detail the various features that have a part in stagecraft: costumes, layout, architectural design, curtain, stage, etc. A variety of explanatory drawings help understanding all the individual elements. An essential text that has no equal on the Italian scene. 9788841857267 - pp. 384 - € 50,00 size: 21,4 x 28,6 - binding: paperback

In mongolfiera contro un albero Riding on a hot-air balloon against a tree

Il mio cuore ti appartiene My heart belongs to you

Il volo di Caterina The flight of Caterina

The analysis of Grassia, journalist for La Stampa, is more or less this: 4000 articles; travels to fifty countries; hundreds of interviews to famous people like Henry Kissinger, Kofi Annan, Leah Rabin; two space launches (watched) and a ride on a hot-air ballon (done). The reporter’s memories interchange with the apparent quiet of the newsroom and the humour daily news offer, so that we can get to know the feelings and the emotions of those people who make and read newspapers.

There’s a new comer in Alex’s class, the beautiful and serious Ylenia. The boy is struck by her and starts doing everything he can to please her: he shows reliable, he stops being late with friends, he studies and does well. But Ylenia keeps a terrible secret and, even though she feels the same way, she decides to keep a distance from him. After long ups and downs of emotions, love explodes and leads us to the final turning point, where life and death engage in fierce battle. A romantic and touching story, a slice of life of small-towns teenagers, with their wishes, naivety and dreams.

The neurosurgery ward of the Bellaria hospital in Bologna. Caterina is two years and eight months old. She has a brain tumor. How can you bear such pain? You need to hold back your fear and fight. Caterina has had surgery. She can barely move her left arm and leg, she cannot sit down and she has esotropia in her left eye. Yet, despite all, she is alive. Chemotherapy now begins. Her father Lorenzo stays with her throughout the treatment. In a sequence of “sliding doors” interweaving with the illness, Lorenzo tells us about Caterina’s story and imagines her future. To survive, to pay homage to life, to never forget and to look forward.
