ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Il nuovo romanzo di Umberto Eco arriva a trent’anni esatti di distanza dal capolavoro che fu "Il Nome della Rosa" nel lontano 1980. Da sempre interessato alle vicende esistenziali della nostra contemporaneità, anche questa volta Umberto Eco ha svolto un’analisi attenta e letteraria del mondo moderno, incentrando la sua nuova opera sulla nascita delle Nazioni moderne.
Il Cimitero di Praga è un romanzo ambientato nell'800 e racconta le vicende del Capitano Simonini, falsario di professione, ingaggiato dai servizi segreti di diversi Paesi. Il protagonista si aggira per l'Europa architettando intrighi che hanno realmente influito sul corso della storia. Umberto Eco dipinge un Ottocento fitto di rivolte, congiure, insurrezioni, sollevazioni, e attorno a questo personaggio ci racconta la nascita delle nazioni, riversando una luce conturbante sui nostri tempi.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Umberto Eco’s new novel "The Cemetery Of Prague" takes his readers on an unforgettable journey through the underbelly of world-shattering events. This is Eco at his most exciting, a book immediately hailed as his masterpiece. The novel, titled “The Prague Cemetery”, is the story of a secret agent who “weaves plots, conspiracies, intrigues and attacks, and helps determine the historical and political fate of the European Continent”. The novel begins in Paris in March 1897, and the main character, Captain Simonini – an adventurer and a forger, who works for the secret police a half of the states of Europe, as well as weaving conspiracies and preparing the assassination. According to Eco, “the characters of this novel are not imaginary. Except the main character, they all lived in reality, including his grandfather, author of the mysterious message to abbot Barruelo which gave rise to all modern anti-Semitism”. “The nineteenth century was full of monstrous and mysterious events – the mysterious death of Ippolito Nievo, the forgery of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion that inspired Hitler’s extermination of the Jews, the Dreyfus affair and endless intrigue spun by the secret police of different countries, the Masons, Jesuit plots, and other events whose accuracy can’t ever be authenticated, but that serve as fodder for feuilletons 150 years later”.
