This particular edition is being sold for upwards of 1000 €. I was able to purchase this one for significantly less because of the two small scratches on the back dust cover. The reason that this volume is so expensive is its scarcity as the result of a lawsuit between the translator (Vicky Aliata) and the publisher (Bompiani) which required all unsold stock to be removed from bookstores and no further publication to be permitted. This lawsuit also accounts for why Italian translations in general (most of which are by Aliata) tend to be high-priced compared to other translations in Europe. This article is informative.
