This ISBN is for the paperback English translation of the novel, but the page has the subtitle and all of the other text in Italian. It does say "Edition Language: English", so shouldn't the plot and the subtitle be in English? I assume there are other editions in Italian where that text would be appropriate.

Arenda | 19904 comments I've added an English description to this English edition.
The subtitle is not a subtitle, but the series name. As a series applies to all editions, no matter what language, it is listed in Italian on the series page. There it is mentioned what the English series title is:

This edition does have the English series in the title field, and will show up on some places, including your bookshelves. The book page will always show the series title as it is listed on the series page.
