"""A Palazzo in the Stars"" collects 17 great science fiction stories by a modern master! From the author's Introduction: ""This collection represents the output of about two-and-a-half years, and, while I might have filled such a book in one year's writing time circa 1990, there's nonetheless another collection's worth of newer stuff awaiting curation, beyond this volume. I guess by now I should realize that, for me at least, the process is inevitable, rather like another process I am all too familiar with: acquiring extra pounds. Pleasurable, stealthy and yet eventually noticeable to all. I hope you enjoy these stories of recent vintage."" PRAISE FOR PAUL DI FILIPPO: "Di Filippo is one of the most talented humorists in contemporary fantasy and science fiction." -Publishers Weekly ""[An] often genuinely funny mixture of Raymond Carver, Harry Harrison, and Douglas Adams."" -- Booklist ""Few SF writers are as imaginative, energetic, or idea rich as Paul Di Filippo, and fewer still have as broad a knowledge of science and culture. And there's no contemporary SF writer who's more fun to read. --Cynthia Ward"

The Duke and the Stars explores science and medicine as studied and practiced in fifteenth-century Italy, including how astrology was taught in relation to astronomy. It illustrates how the “predictive art” of astrology was often a critical, secretive source of information for Italian Renaissance rulers, particularly in times of crisis.

THE GIRL WHO REACHED FOR THE STARS is a breathtaking tale of daring dreams and a love that surmounts all barriers. Set against the evocative background of Medieval Venice, this riveting story is told from the perspectives of several people whose destinies are tightly intertwined: a young pickpocket, a savvy Jewish survival artist, and a teenage girl with a remarkable talent. All of them are torn apart by violence, intrigue, revenge, and greed but also united by friendship, dreams of justice, and the courage to reach for the stars. Echoing his international bestseller THE BOY WHO GRANTED DREAMS, Luca Di Fulvio's novel tells the unforgettable love story between a Christian boy and a Jewish girl against the backdrop of the first Jewish ghetto in sixteenth-century Venice.
The theory in question was well known during the Renaissance and influenced
astrological iconography, including the frescoes in the Salone dei Mesi at the Palazzo Schifanoia in Ferrara.49 Because the decans are considered part of the

Costruito alla metà del Quattrocento da Michelozzo per volere dei Medici, il palazzo divenne il prototipo dell'Architettura civile rinascimentale. La mole robusta e austera del palazzo, in origine ridotta a una sorta di cubo, è stata per almeno un secolo l'Immagine più diretta ed efficace del primato politico e culturale dei Medici a Firenze. Dopo un periodo di incuria, nel 1659 i Medici lo vendettero ai Riccardi che lo hanno ampliato verso nord e in parte ristrutturato gli interni. Gli interventi di gusto barocco, particolarmente intensi negli ultimi due decenni del secolo, furono improntati dal fasto spettacolare e dall'Erudizione ricercata. Tramontato tanto splendore, nel 1814 i Riccardi cedettero il palazzo al demanio.
