The Voyage of Aristea

Luciano Canfora


Books and libraries again animate Canfora's pages, following Libro e libertà, published by Laterza, and the best seller La biblioteca di Alessandria, published by Sellerio. In fact, Alexandria here is the starting point for a journey among books, religion and power, up to the Renaissance Sistine Library.
