Die Reise der Anais mit dem Wind ist ein poetisches und literarisches Werk in Märchenform. Es wurde schnell zum Bestseller.

Auf ihrer Reise wird Anais den Sinn des Lebens, die Einsamkeit, ihre Gefühle und die Liebe kennenlernen.

Die Geschichte erzählt von einem kleinen Mädchen namens Anais, das seine Sommerferien auf einer einsamen Insel verbringt. Der Großvater des Mädchens ist der Leuchtturmwärter und einzige Inselbewohner.

In einem außergewöhnlichen Sommer erreicht der Wind die Insel und weht so stark, dass Anais zum ersten Mal in ihrem Leben die andere Seite der Dinge sieht. Der Wind führt das Mädchen durch seine Reise und hört erst dann auf zu wehen, als Anais die andere Seite der Insel erreicht, um mit allen Tieren und den Fischern das Sommerfest zu feiern.

Die Reise der Anais mit dem Wind ist ein Meisterwerk der Kinderliteratur und fängt die Essenz des Erwachsenwerdens und des Lebens ein.

Turin Book Fair, the lockdown brought people closer to books and reading says Dario Franceschini, Head of the Education Department in Italy. Online book sales significantly improve, the interesting case of the novel L’Affaire Casati Stampa, released in full lockdown, which achieved record sales numbers in a few months. 

“It is an important moment for the publishing sector, with great authors and large investments. We are also completing the process of approving a law for the promotion of books and reading, which will support the entire supply chain “, declares the head of the Education Department in Italy, Dario Franceschini, at the opening of the Turin Book Fair.

“The data concerning the publishing sector are comforting – added Franceschini – and, in particular, the lockdown season has brought people closer to books, reading and cultural consumption, I expect great growth”.

Confirming these words, the data on book sales in Italy are growing and in particular there is a sharp upward surge in online book sales. The lockdown certainly acted as a driving force, initiating this phase of change and greater public attention in favor of cultural products.

A significant case is the novel L’Affaire Casati Stampa by Davide Amante, released in full lockdown in the first days of March 2021 and which a year later achieves very important sales results, almost half a million copies in 10 months and almost entirely paper edition sold online. The author, whose novels are translated into different languages, observed that such significant numbers usually take a longer time, especially in Italy and that the lockdown period has accelerated sales and renewed interest in literature. It should be noted that “L’Affaire Casati Stampa”, by strategic choice of the author and publisher, is only available in the printed version and not in the digital version, therefore all the data refer to sales through the online channel of the printed edition.

L’Affaire Casati Stampa, Davide Amante

I tell the imperfection of love to find its beauty. Davide Amante’s latest novel presented at BookCity Milano 2021.

I tell the imperfection of love to find its beauty.
In front of a fascinated public, in the heart of Milan, where once stood the renowned private clinic ‘Città di Milano’ which is described in the pages of his novel, Davide Amante presented the nonconformist and dramatic love story between Anna Fallarino and the Marquis Camillo Casati Stampa.

Many in the audience had the colorful cover of L’Affaire Casati Stampa, which depicts an image of the Marquis’ beautiful mistress, whose portrait vaguely recalls Andy Warhol’s pop art.

Davide Amante’s novel was released in February 2021 and has already exceeded 300,000 copies in a few months. Bookcity Milano 2021 was one of the author’s rare appearances. Davide Amante retraces the details of a complex investigation into the life of an exceptional couple, in a novel written in a fast and compelling style. The novel is currently only available in Italian.

The novel investigates a love story that caused a scandal in the late 1960s and ended tragically, so much so that it was defined by the main magazines of the time as the greatest Italian scandal. The Marquis Casati Stampa, one of the best known and richest families in Milan (one of his villas was later sold to Berlusconi, Villa San Martino in Arcore) falls in love with a beautiful Anna Fallarino, 13 years younger than him. The two will weave a voyeuristic and passionate relationship that will end with a murder-suicide out of jealousy. Davide Amante reconstructs, through the investigations of a magistrate and a commissioner, all the steps and events of this exceptional couple, in a novel with an impeccable style.

As the author said: ‘I go searching for the human soul and it is in despair, in madness, in the most unconventional stories that you find the great breath of life’.

The Affaire Casati Stampa was the protagonist at BookCity Milano, the 10 day event organised by the city of Milan, dedicated to books and reading that this year celebrates its first ten years. Over 1,400 meetings throughout the city of Milan and over 260 locations, as well as online meetings and webinars.

Davide Amante was born in Milan in 1970. In addition to L’Affaire Casati Stampa (2021) he published Il Guardiano delle Stelle – the journey of Anais together with the wind (2019) translated into six countries, Il Dossier Wallenberg (2016) of which the ‘US edition is about to become a film, Altair (2014) the best-selling sea and travel novel in Italy.
