The Wisdom of the Hanged / La saggezza dell'impiccato by Andre Solnikkar & Luca Chioetto
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C465GWX 2018-05-04, 11:47 AM

"Another excellent satelitte from Andre. Choose madness. Choose the void. Choose this book. If you read it 13 times in a row, a new book appears on the 14th read." amazon.com

A collection of gnomic wisdom from medieval Italy, published for the first time. 

Rare glimpses of an alternative worldview, the fragments collected in this anthology are based on the notations of the "segretari dell’impiccato", executors of a semi-pagan Italian tradition: When criminals were executed, specially-appointed scribes wrote down the hanged men's last words. In the belief that the dying, on the threshold between this world and the next, were privy to special wisdom, these words were collected in special tomes ("antologie dei morti") and mostly destroyed by edict of pope Leo X. 

The "antologie" are presented in this bilingual edition (English/Italian) to a world in dire need of a different point of view.
