Since the Mennulara was given to prints in 2002, Simonetta Agnello Hornby has always thought that it would return to the novel for further study work and to add those who have since called "the lost chapters", or pages that are actually lost but populated Of remained images engraved in his memory: those unpublished pages have finally reconstructed and now reinforce the machine of history, the atmosphere of the narration, the profiles of some characters. Roccacolomba, Sicily, September 23, 1963. The Mennulara died, at the Century Maria Rosalia Inzerillo, home of the Alfallipe family, whose heritage she has always been - and without ever failing to the subordinate role - careful administrator. Everyone talks about it because she facilitates the wealth she would have accumulated, perhaps favored by relationships with the local mafia. Everyone talks about it because they know and they don't know, because there are those who hate it and the curse and those who remind you with gratitude. In this new edition, entirely revised by the Author, Mennulaara is more sensual, the lunges of the atmosphere grow and the hooks to the Sicilian society of the early sixties. The spiral of comments, post mortuary, on the good or mala conduct of the Mennula - real narration engine - uses some extra voices, in support of the psychological complexity of the protagonist and society in which she acts.
