• Product Description

    Wishing to discover her family’s past, at a critical turning point in her life, the author, quite unaware of what she was going to meet, flings herself into an intricate search that will take her to unknown paths and it will bring her close to iconic historical figures. Reality exceeds imagination and proves that our world is one and undivided and this is how we ought to face him.

    The final part of the book constitutes a gallery of members of the same family that originated in Italy and afterwards moved to Greece during the 17th century. The narration is animated by tenderness and nostalgy for a world now lost.
