An epic saga of men and women who will remain as vividly in our memory as they have in our past. The extraordinary ability of a peasant family, Bruni, to render itself up to the turning of the seasons while looking resolutely to the future with renewed faith. A journey that will take the readers from the courtyard of the family farm with its unchanging order to the complexities of a new world, in the years between the two World Wars, that is both selfish and pitiless. Mining oral history with the meticulous attention to detail of an historian, Valerio Massimo Manfredi takes us on a breathtaking journey through the 20th century, which is still alive in us, in our bodies and our actions, beginning from the First World War.
