Saturday, February 18, at 19:00 Angelo D'Orsi presents his book "1917. The year of the Revolution"

From the publisher's site:
The story of a year that changed history: Fatima and Caporetto, the Winter Palace and the White House, Lenin and Mata Hari ...

In March, a 'democratic' revolution forced Tsar Nicholas II to abdicate. In April, the US make their entry in the World War, in May three shepherd children see a 'Lady' dressed in white in Fatima, Portugal, in July the English captain Lawrence (of Arabia said then) rips Aqaba from the Turks and August Benedict XV ruling his words against 'senseless slaughter' which for three years has been bloodying Europe and the world. In September, multiply the mutinies at the front and the riots in the cities against the war, in October in Paris is shot Margaretha Zelle, dancer known as Mata Hari, while Italian troops are overwhelmed at Caporetto. In November, while the Bolsheviks conquered the Winter Palace, the Balfour Declaration opens the way for the creation of the State of Israel and a new organization of the Middle East. In December at the Italian Prime Minister Orlando urges the country to "resist! resist! resist!"…
12 months to tell, between facts and ideologies, the year when everything changed, when the twentieth century became the century, they were tight knots that still imprison us. A fresco, and moved by strong colors and enthusiasts. 12 chapters through which the author suggests unusual combinations and references to this, that in many ways it has inherited.
