An English-language list of his publication is at the Open Commons of Phenomenology. Please note that it does not yet contain the full series of the Complete Works, downloadble from this link. They have been produced by Piana himself in 2013, providing a systematic reordering of all its production. Notably, he destroyed all the materials from the University courses to provide a clean and complete representation of his thinking. An English translation of all the titles and subtitles of the Complete Works is in the making.
