A trip to the land of the dead, a murder case that ends the most grim and sinister of encounters, and an unforgettable summer day in which political history and private history are intertwined in an incitement to pull the strings of the can. The three stories that make up this book, which go from the future to the past, are also a "Hell", a "Purgatory" and a "Paradise", three moments in the decline of a country. All three flow between satire and meditation, between denunciation and compassion, between grand style and realistic baseness, between moral imagination and political analysis.
