Andrea Colombo is working as a journalist in a local newspaper. Nothing exciting, like his private life: so many loves, no love. In this unresolved and precarious routine, however, there are three recurring figures: the Magi, a constant presence in his life. Finding that a part of the bones of the Magi is kept in Milan, in the Basilica of Sant’Eustorgio, he begins to research them and soon finds himself faced with unexpected questions. Thus, the Magi become the seals of disconcerting secrets, capable of threatening the very fundamental dogmas of the Church. Andrea stumbles into a story bigger than him, where religious and msonic extremists create a game of mirrors in which appearance and reality mix dangerously. Templars, Knights of Malta, the “fifth” Gospel, arcane messages disguised in Leonardo’s paintings animate this novel that, combining the exciting mechanisms of thriller with the introspection of an existential narrative, offers a tense and human story: the lesson that, in order to live fully, one must accept the challenge of entering without reserve in the complicated mystery of existence.
