Sua Santità

Non era mai successo. Nessuno era riuscito ad accedere nella stanza del papa e a leggere le sue carte riservate. Centinaia di documenti che svelano la quotidiana precarietà della Chiesa, tra affari assai poco trasparenti e congiure di palazzo. Gianluigi Nuzzi, dopo "Vaticano S.p.a." sullo scandalo dello Ior, racconta, grazie alle carte fornite da una fonte segreta, le stor ...more

Da leggere e conservare
Però mi vien da pensare: un libro dove si descrive il Vaticano come un luogo di potere degno delle peggiori corti del rinascimento, pieno di ipocriti, di gente senza scrupoli, infida, bugiarda... è stato un po' come leggere un libro dove si dice che l'acqua è bagnata

Il giornalista Gianluigi Nuzzi si appropria dei documenti che il maggiordomo ha copiato e decide di scrivere un libro sulle verità nascoste dietro il Vaticano. Il Papa non è la figura che lascia trasparire i media, ogni suo passo è seguito e scopriamo come vive, con chi mangia, quale piatto preferisce. Ogni singolo dettaglio è trascritto sino a giungere a casi e donazioni di denaro da parte di italiani famosi in tutta Italia come Bruno Vespa.

Un'interessantissima inchiesta. Penso che purtroppo non verrà letta dalla stragrande maggioranza di persone avvolte dalla cecità della fede.
Mi è stato detto che questo libro ha lo scopo di mettere in luce la figura pura ed innocente del papa, ovviamente è il parere di un soggetto sofferente di cecità cristiana che non ha neppure l'intenzione di leggere qualche pagina di Nuzzi. In realtà il papa tace spesso sulle colpe della chiesa e non per questo ha meno colpe di chi tende i molti dei fili del

Dalle storie più evidenti e note, come quelle riguardanti Boffo e Viganò, a quelle più assurde ma forse ugualmente immaginabili come quelle su tremanti impegnato a fare in modo che l'Italia non dovesse chiedere gli arretrati dell'ICI al Vaticano o gli incontri riservati di Napolitano con il Papa, senza tralasciare gli inquietanti racconti di auto vaticane crivellate di colpi ed indagini indebitamente svolte sul suolo italiano dalla polizia Vaticana. Avevo un po' di dubbi su questo libro uscito c ...more

Unfortunately, this book has not been translated well, and consequently, it was hard to follow. You need to have some prior knowledge of the facts, otherwise the book makes no sense whatsoever.

Nothing new, the Vatican is a state with the same intrigues and corruption as any other state. Some of the stories are just halfway, the author wrote about them just for the lector to know he had some documentation related to it.

This was a very juicy book, at least the half I read, however it needs a better translation to English.
The first few chapters can be read without much confusion but right after the first 3 chapters the quality of the translation appeared rushed and not very well thought-out. Unfortunately I could not find the Italian version, I'd love to read it!
Hopefully at some point there will be a better translation, or maybe the original will be available as a Kindle book.
Magari un giorno ci sarà una traduz
