    «GADDA The pain of knowledge» by Franco Gàbici
    ISBN 88-86792-40-9 pp.207 Euro 15,00
    Carlo Emilio Gadda, one of the most interesting twentieth-century Italian writer, was a civil engineer, and yet up to now there haven’t been any studies on the influence of his scientific background on his fiction.

    «Essay on Ghilgames» by Claudio Saporetti
    ISBN 88-86792-45-X pp.208, Euro 20,00
    The author has already translated and edited Ghilgamesh (Il Ghilgamesh - Simonelli Editore), the ancient Sumerian poems found in the Assurbanipal’s Palace (7th century BC) at Niniveh. It is the most recent, the most exhaustive Italian translation with comments of the Ghilgamesh poems, and the first one coming out from the original twelve tables in cuneiform inscription. Now Claudio Saporetti gives you the opportunity to take a deeper look at these poems with this collection of his essays on Ghilgamesh. Professor Saporetti teaches Assyriology at the University of Pisa in Italy.
