Ero digiuna di storia, arte e cultura greca da un bel po'.
Ecco, se lo siete anche voi e volete fare un ripassino, o se semplicemente volete leggere un bel saggio sulla Grecia, in particolare sulla Atene dei secoli dal VIII-V a.C., Akropolis potrebbe essere il libro che fa per voi. A meno che non siate degli esperti sull'argomento, nel qual caso... temo che vi annoierete soltanto.

Manfredi riesce a coniugare, in un'opera di facile lettura, molto più della storia di una città o di uno Stato. Vi si

O carte de umplutura din portofoliul lui Manfredi, dar valoarea autorului ii garanteaza o cota ridicata. Este o semi-fictiune autobiografica ingemanata cu o carte de popularizare a istoriei antice. Chiar si daca esti toba de istorie antica greco-romana, perspectiva din care nareaza Manfredi iti completeaza imaginea sau macar aduce o alta lumina asupra fenomenului. Nu este sub nicio forma timp pierdut daca alegi sa o citesti.

I am Italian. Valerio Massimo Manfredi is Italian. Patriotism, hurray!

I love historical fiction (Ancient Greece stuff in particular), he writes about it.

About AKROPOLIS, let it suffice to say that I use it as a reference book in History of Ancient Greece.

You want to know about the polis Athens? Pick up this book.
Simple writing and lots of information.
