It is now already a bit 'of days that I do not write anything on the blog, specifically since I am left without internet (26 May 2007) I have published only two articles relating to misunderstandings with Telecom, but no news on the software side or ideas and / or reflections personal.
The reason for this "long" silence?
Staying with more time available due to the lack of internet, I set the shelves in the living room and I scrutinized the titles of the books that were placed upon ... yellow, adventure, fiction, and much more ... but my eye fell on a cover in truth unattractive: a book by Colleen McCullough titled "Caesar, the genius and passion."
A masterpiece of 555 pages. Narrative on the Roman world during the first triumvirate, the Gallic War, the growth of the triumphs and of power, Caesar's Dignitas. The rebellion, the crossing of the Rubicon and civil war with Pompey and related hostile Roman hero. But the minute descriptions of the battles, the tricks and strategies in the large and small victories of one of the greatest and most memorable condottierei of all time.
As he told The New York Times:
The McCullough is beautiful .... his characters pulsate life!
I learned more things about the Roman world (my great passion since childhood) only in this book than any of the years in the school environment. You become aware not only of history, but also, and most importantly, the daily reality of life in Rome and its provinces, of the habits and customs.
Ahhhh how much I loved the glorious Rome!
