Le messager que reçoit Nicolas Machiavel une nuit, alors qu'il dispute avec hargne une partie de carte, est au bout de l'épuisement. La nouvelle qu'il apporte à l'auguste stratège, d'une importance capitale, semble pourtant avoir mérité la fatigue et les épreuves qui se lisent sur son visage : César Borgia est mort.

Avec l'évocation du célèbre personnage se déroule bientôt l'histoire, grandiose et tragique, d'une famille qui lutte pour le pouvoir. Une lutte, qui en servant les intérêts des indiv

Tre stellette e mezza che arrotondo con piacere a quattro, dato che, una volta tanto, un romanzo sui Borgia non si limita a sordide scene di sesso più o meno incestuoso, ma racconta effettivamente qualcosa dello scenario politico in cui Cesare, Rodrigo & Co. si sono mossi e in cui hanno agito.

La narrazione procede liscia e senza troppi aspetti romanzati, lo stile dell'autore è molto scorrevole (mi sarebbe piaciuto leggere il libro in lingua originale!) e i personaggi sono ben delineati. Pecc

4 stelle perché ho apprezzato la ricostruzione storica della famiglia Borgia (potevo aspettarmi altrimenti da Montalbán?) e per l'interesse che si prova per quasi tutta la narrazione per vicende passate ormai da secoli. Cesare rimane una figura sardonica, affascinante.
Un unico grosso difetto: alcune parti sono un po' accessorie e sembrano messe lì per allungare il romanzo. Peccato, ma non altera il mio giudizio.

Parejo en calidad con la autobiografia del general franco

Per chi è appassionato dei Borgia.

Terá sido para César Bórgia e não para Lorenzo de Médicis que Maquiavel escreveu 'O Príncipe'?
Com todo o peso histórico que a historia tem, e confiando que a pesquisa de Montalbán foi exaustiva, creio ainda assim que o texto podia ser mais cativante. Ou a culpa é da tradução, o que até é muito provável...

César Borja, hijo del Papa Alejandro VI luchará con la ayuda de Nicolás Maquiavelo y Leonardo Da Vinci para unificar Italia bajo el mandato de un Estado Pontificio. Francia y España no están muy interesadas.

Nice historical romance, rather too light and romanced for my taste. Biased too.
A holiday book.
