Adaptacin de R. Ariolfo

El conde Lucanor is a collection of short


stories with a moralistic theme, in which
Patronio, the Counts advisor, offers his
advice on the issues provoked by each
event being told. The stories, which
feature farmers, courtiers, and beggars as
the lead characters, offer an insight into
the lifestyle of the Spanish royalty and
society in the Middle Ages.

These four short stories focus on the


shortcomings and virtues of people and
animals. Set in a thriving area of wildlife
between the south of Brazil, the east of
Paraguay, and northeast Argentina, the
stories illustrate how man and nature can
co-exist peacefully.

Theses brief narrations, La Corza Blanca


and La Cruz del Diablo, perfectly combine
fiction with a folktale-like atmosphere.
They are filled with romanticism and
mystery.

At the end of the 15th century, the

Parzival

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfram von Eschenbach


Bearbeitet von A. Seiffarth

Sabine Werner

This story follows Parzival from his


boyhood and career as a knight in the
court of King Arthur, to his ultimate
achievement as King of the Temple of the
Grail. This is not simply a tale of chivalry,
but an epic quest for spiritual education,
as Parzival must conquer his ignorance
and pride and learn humility before he can
finally win the Holy Grail.

The sometimes dramatic, sometimes


funny episodes from the life of Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart ensure a captivating and
inspiring experience. Known as one of the
greatest musicians and composers of all
time, this selection features the early years
of the miracle child, the long tedious
journeys through Europe, the successes,
and the failures that lead to his early death
in abject poverty.

La collana longobarda

Giallo al
Grand Hotel du Lac

Maria Grazia Di Bernardo

Il mito di Proserpina
Raccontato da Tiziana Merani

Maria Grazia Di Bernardo


How can a peaceful stay in Italy turn into
a real adventure? This is what happens
to Anna, a German student who has gone
to Bergamo to improve her Italian. One
day in her room she discovers the diary
of Louise, a previous tenant. As she flips
through the diary, she discovers a deeply
disturbing page. Curious, Anna begins
to investigate and sets out to solve the
mystery with the help of a friend.

Thanks to Uncle Giorgio, a very famous


chef, Carolina has the chance to work for
the summer at the Grand Hotel du Lac
near Lake Como. Here Carolina meets
many interesting people and finds out
what really lies behind the faade of this
luxurious hotel. Everything seems perfect
until a series of unpleasant accidents
unsettles the quiet of the hotel and puts
Carolinas life in danger.

Cercere, the goddess of the messengers,


is tormented by a recurring dream that
her daughter, Proserpina, disappears.
Very soon the goddess discovers that
it is a premonition. Proserpina is in fact
kidnapped by the god of hell, who takes
her with him to the afterlife. Giving over to
the anger and pain, the goddess interrupts
his work on earth. The fields dry up, seeds
no longer sprout, and a terrible famine
starts.
