About this book

Language: Italian

Yesterday's historians, naturalists, geographers and chroniclers have left us a series of testimonies on monsters of the sea, which has gradually increased with the progressive increase in travel and exploration, thus proposing a parallel zoology, in which science and myth contend for a primacy with the second dominating. In this book, the myths, legends, historical documents, testimonies and scientific conclusions on sea monsters are collected and analyzed with scientific methodology and proposed in a highly fascinating panorama, aimed at a diverse number of readers. From the mermaid to Moby Dick, from fish men to giant squid, from sea snakes to living islands, the author collects a significant number of curiosities and strange but always documented facts. In this book, there are hundreds of sources produced: from those of the ancient and medieval world, up to those from the time of geographical discoveries come to the present day. A trip for those who love the sea, but also for those interested in the "strange things" that mark our world and its mysteries.

Summary in Italian:
Storici, naturalisti, geografi e cronisti di ieri ci hanno lasciato una serie di testimonianze su mostri del mare, che con il progressivo incremento di viaggi ed esplorazioni è via via aumentato, proponendo così una zoologia parallela, nella quale scienza e mito si contendono un primato comunque destinato al secondo. In questo libro i miti, le leggende, i documenti storici, le testimonianze e le conclusioni della scienza sui mostri del mare sono raccolti e analizzati con metodologia scientifica e proposti in un panorama di grande fascino, diretto a un diversificato numero di lettori. Dalla sirena a Moby Dick, dagli uomini pesce ai calamari giganti, dai serpenti marini alle isole viventi, l'autore raccoglie un numero rilevante di notizie, curiosità, fatti strani, ma sempre documentati. Nel volume sono centinaia le fonti prodotte: da quelle del mondo antico e medievale, fino a quelle che dall'epoca delle scoperte geografiche giungono a oggi. Un viaggio per chi ama il mare, ma anche per chi è interessato alle "cose strane" che contrassegnano questo nostro mondo e i suoi misteri.
