L'ombra della clessidra. Tra le ombre della storia, tra infiniti misteri, tra gli angoli più oscuri delle vicende umane
Historia magistra vitae est? Sometimes yes, sometimes it forgets that it is, or we forget about it ourselves.
What seems unquestionable is the presence of events whose explanation is not immediately evident because the available documentation is certainly not exhaustive, because "the winners write history", because the events themselves are located so far in time that a good part of them appear evanescent, indecipherable, hidden by the mists of past eras.
