The author in conversation with Caterina Soffici. The meeting will also be attended by Imam Izzedin Elzir

A report from the hottest areas of the world, face to face with madness and pain, but also the attempt to understand what is hidden behind the bloody game of mirrors that we call the black caliphate.

The black wave is spreading, forever changing the face of the world and our habits. It spreads like a cancer, it creeps into our lives. But who’s spreading the infection? How was it possible that a few thousand jihadists invented out of nothing a state as large as the United Kingdom and are able to organize massacres in every corner of the planet?

This book tells how incredible complicity and how much Western wisdom are hidden under the mask of the new terrorists.
