La notte delle rose nere - Nino Filastò

Sculptures by Modigliani are found in Livorno. Are they originals or fakes? Then an American art historian is found dead and a connection is suspected. In his attempt to discover the truth Avvocato Scalzi gets himself involved with a talented drug-addict, a lawyer colleague who dreams of opening a fish restaurant on a remote island, and several murky characters. His investigation takes him to Paris, among political exiles and former models. An international intrigue that goes back to Modigliani’s tragic life.
