Movia's edition is the first complete translation of both Alexander of Aphrodisias' Commentary to Aristotle's Metaphysics (books I-V) and the remaining nine books. As is customary for series from Bompiani, the book provides the Greek text on one side with the Italian translation printed on the facing-page.

The editor's 120-page introduction is a patient analysis of both Alexander's and Pseudo-Alexander's arguments, supplemented with summaries of the individual books. Alexander's views are hard to extrapolate from the commentary because his method is to analyse Aristotle's text paragraph by paragraph and often sentence by sentence, and he often prefers to give various explanations of the same point rather than choosing one. 6

Although certain individual peculiarities remain, the translations read very smoothly and possess terminological and stylistic uniformity. The printing seems to be accurate.
