Italian text

The book runs through the medical-scientific and literary history of Black Death. From the plague that devastated Athens in the 5th century BC, unto the contagion that spread to San Francisco in the first decade of the 20th century, the authors outline a broad and varied framework of the many epidemics as described by great writers and poets, as well as authors unknown to most. So the journey through the history of the disease turns to be a journey through literature in its many forms, medical science and its progress, as well as human society and its evolution over the centuries.
