Human beings have always been afraid of death. It is something innate. As a matter of fact, it is not easy to accept the idea of disappearing forever.
No matter if it is the origins of pizza Margherita or the legend of Holy Grail, pirates or the troubled history of Jewish people: in these pages there is room for everything.
Lelio Finocchiaro has managed to reconstruct human history, starting from ancient times, and go quickly through it. He chose some events sometimes more meaningful ones, some times more interesting, mysterious and fascinatingnes.
Lose yourself in this essay, which, just like a collection of stories, is able to arouse your uriosity “crumb by crumb”. Let the events capture you and get to the last pages being aware that you have learnt something, while having fun finding out new things about the past, which will make it possible, for you, to look at the present in a different way
