Guarda, tocca, vivi. Riscoprire i sensi per essere felici by Claudio Risé
I liked the book overall, yet I felt like something was missing on the closing part.
It’s more like a collection of multiple interesting essays on related subjects than a single comprehensive text

Manifesto dei conservatori by Roger Scruton
Very good reading.
The reasoning is rigorous yet easy to approach.
You can find an interesting review in Italian here

Decisive Treatise and Epistle Dedicatory by Averroes
I’ve read the italian translation printed by Rizzoli.
The introduction and notes provide the fundamental context to fully appreciate the content.

Shadrach in the Furnace by Robert Silverberg
The conclusion is clear a bit too early, but it’s a nice reading to relax.

I Drink Therefore I Am: A Philosopher’s Guide to Wine by Roger Scruton
I strongly recommend this book.
The part covering the wines is great and inspiring (I’d like to taste as many as possible of the mentioned ones to compare my experience with the author’s one) and the philosophical part is easy enough to handle for non-philosophers yet rich in content.

I found it a bit boring

La profondeur des sexes by Fabrice Hadjadj
Recommended book. Even if you may disagree with the author facing the issues he raises in a structured way will turn out useful nonetheless
