There is hardly another country in Europe that has undergone so many shaking events in four thousand years of history, so many turns of fortune, invasions, demographic upheavals. All European peoples and all empires seem to have met in these lands, a center of incredible accumulation of civilizations. In all ages of its development, Italy has been a mirror of human genius - ranging from political and state order, through science, art, sculpture, architecture, cinema, music... One must indeed have great knowledge, erudition, and inner devotion to produce such a carefully documented but vivid and enthralling account of a long and complicated past. The French professor of contemporary history Pierre Milza, specialist in the history of fascism and of Italy in the 19th and 20th century, author of a biography of Mussolini, winner of many awards, has accomplished this marvelously. From the Bronze Age to Berlusconi, he traces the important events, portrays a cohort of outstanding personalities, emphasizes the contribution of Italy to world culture and spirituality. All this information has been arranged in the space of only a thousand pages, presenting to us the Italian miracle, which, unlike other "miracles" discovered by historians in various places and times, is not short-lived but has the flavour of eternity.
