The study aims to analyze Manzoni's masterpiece from a particular point of view: the presence of the worst that exists in the world, of that evil that takes on different forms in history.
Almost an apocalyptic picture, on a civil, moral and existential level.
The book subsequently combines the three themes mentioned in the title: war, famine and plague, capturing how much of these realities is attributable to the human mind when it is not supported by faith and allows itself to be overcome by the disease of will, by the presumption and foolishness.
