This volume is part of the old style impossible interviews that were written by Italian authors (Eco, Camilleri, Calvino, etc.) who imagined they interviewed great people of the past. Vladimiro D’Acunto in this latest work shows he is a master of synthetic journalistic style, adding to a rigid biographical research on those being interviewed, a fresh, spontaneous humor.
In the selections of the interviewed persons, Vladimiro D’Acunto has chosen a varied group of men of letters and architects, generals and explorers as well as musicians. The choice has no limits of time. So we can hear the words of Augustus as well as those of Jimi Hendrix, of Pythagoros and Frida Khalo, of Medea and Pasolini.
Even with the jumps in time and theme, the book keeps its uniformity. A pleasant read that is enriched by the splendid caricatures by D’Acunto.
