This book, as its title suggests, is about Umberto Eco, one of the most influential intellectuals of our time.
Born in Alessandria (1932), Eco is a very prolific writer: as a commentator, essayist, novelist, translator, and scholar.
The texts commissioned for this book – penned by emerging and established authors, scholars and translators – reflect Eco’s multifaceted mind and work in original and penetrating ways.
