In distribution “The ignorant biographies”, the humorous book by Annarita Coriasco and Duilio Chiarle, available both in traditional paper format and in ebooks

The world is full of more or less successful biographies, some very funny, others very boring. All characters really existed and seen “from afar”. And so we decided to mix what is true and certainly proven with the opinions of people taken at random, who know little or nothing about the subject, but who cannot give up their say.

It turned out a mix of hilarious things. Try asking someone, like this, point blank, holding a microphone as if it were a poll “What can you tell me about Rudolph Valentino?” or “Who was Themistocles Rapagnetta?”, or even “Tell me about Caligula”, “Have you ever heard of Robin Hood?” and “What was Marie Antoinette like?”. After a moment of bewilderment, almost everyone fires something trivial or nonsense. It’s a bit like intervening on “social networks” where anyone can talk about quantum mechanics without knowing anything and silence a physicist by writing a speech in all caps, since on a social network also “Pino the cyclist” and “Amine di stolandia” claim to argue, on subjects they do not know, on an equal footing with anyone and sometimes they give ignorance to those who have studied a whole life on those matters.

So why not add something truly, genuinely ignorant to the (real) biographies already drenched in jokes and wickedness? This took many years longer than expected (at least five), but in the end the result is really fun. But be warned, not everything in this book is true! There is also something profoundly ignorant.
