The grandfather's coat is the old coat that keeps a secret, which grandfather Francesco has not had time to reveal to his grandson, who bears his name.
A manuscript , that just the little Francesco awakens, tells the intense life of an ancestor, Joseph, who lived between' 700 and '800, between the convent and the chair, the consecration to God and the love of wonderful creatures such as the child and the woman, which made him the father, between Italy and Argentina.
A history that is intertwined with the political events that have transformed Europe and expands through the revelation of the dream, of momentous events, such as the Greek colonization and the Eastern Roman Empire, the Adventure Pauline and ventures of Charles V.
A history, as has been said, too good to be true, too true to be novel.
