12 Presidents: The Podcast Exclusive to Audible
Twelve Presidents is a podcast on the life of the Presidents of the Republic who have succeeded each other in 75 years of republican history at the Quirinale that you can listen to exclusively on Audible and on 24+. They are stories, not history. They are tales of as many exceptional lives spent, for one reason or another, in always exceptional times. Because the young Italian Republic contains within itself the adventure of a country that from agricultural becomes a manufacturing and industrial power, now firmly in second place in Europe after Germany; the experience of an ideological borderland at the time of the Cold War and the Iron Curtain in Europe because it knows the epic of the largest Communist Party on the continent; the tragedies of a land tormented by the mafias, never too far from a subversive drift of the diverted secret services and from external forces always interested in destabilizing a country that is crucial in the creation of the new European identity.
Twelve Presidents: the book
The lives of the twelve Presidents are a journey through the history of Italy as it is seen flowing from the Quirinal Palace. The story of a power that doesn’t want to be. But there is. And it weighs. The Head of State is, above all, a person and brings character, inclinations, beliefs and culture into the role. Which are his and hers alone. Did you know, for example, that a quarter of the presidents were monarchists?
