Una dinastia immortale. Un oscuro segreto. Quale mistero si nasconde nel palazzo dello zar?Un grande thriller di Dora Levy MossanenUn viaggio mistico nella corte degli zar pieno di sorprese e colpi di scenaDarja ha 104 anni ed è ancora una donna bellissima e dal fascino misterioso. Vive in un antico e fatiscente palazzo e intorno a lei svolazza sempre un nugolo di farfalle. Nessuno sa con certezza chi sia in realtà: l’unico indizio relativo al suo passato è un preziosissimo ciondolo, un uovo Fabergé tempestato di diamanti e pietre preziose da cui non si separa mai. Ha dei poteri soprannaturali e racconta di essere stata la tutrice del piccolo Aleksej, l’erede al trono dei Romanov. È passato quasi un secolo da quando la Rivoluzione ha annegato nel sangue il fasto e la ricchezza degli zar: i membri della famiglia reale sono stati uccisi, il loro nome dannato, i simboli del potere distrutti, eppure pare che Aleksej sia scampato all’eccidio... Darja non lo ha mai dimenticato e quando riceve una convocazione urgente da parte dell’Associazione della nobiltà russa le sue speranze riprendono corpo... Il sangue nero dei Romanov è una storia densa di magia e di avventura, amore e speranza, in cui rivive l’atmosfera lussureggiante di una corte opulenta e ricca di meraviglie, ma destinata a un inevitabile tramonto.La rivoluzione ha spazzato via dalla storia la corte dei Romanov. Ma forse Aleksej è ancora vivo, e solo Darja può trovarlo.Dora Levy Mossanennata in Israele e cresciuta in Iran, è fuggita negli Stati Uniti all’inizio della Rivoluzione islamica. È autrice di tre romanzi tradotti in diverse lingue. Il sangue nero dei Romanov è il suo primo libro tradotto in Italia.

From the late fifteenth century onwards, scholars across Europe began to write books about how to read and evaluate histories. These pioneering works grew from complex early modern debates about law, religion and classical scholarship. Anthony Grafton's book is based on his Trevelyan Lectures of 2005, and it proves to be a powerful and imaginative exploration of some central themes in the history of European ideas. Grafton explains why so many of these works were written, why they attained so much insight – and why, in the centuries that followed, most scholars gradually forgot that they had existed. Elegant and accessible, What Was History? is a deliberate evocation of E. H. Carr's celebrated Trevelyan Lectures, What Is History?.
