EVENT CANCELLEDMiti emblemi spie. Morfologia e storiaby Carlo Ginzburg

Ginzburg, one of the greatest living Italian historians, re-reads his book about the connections between morphology and history.

With the addition of four essays and a richer and more elaborate iconographic apparatus, the new edition of Miti emblemi spie takes on a crucial role today: noting and reading the survival of ancient and timeless forms in other guises is a fundamental exercise in observing the world, understood as a complex structure within which continuity and discontinuity are not excluded but coexist.
