“Numero Zero” is a new historical detective novel about the media and journalists of the 1990s that has already become a classic of contemporary literature. The plot: a slice of contemporary society where many of its foundations crumble, including creditworthiness, which can be bought but also destroyed. Eco depicts a world that has become the victim of corruption, instability and money laundering. Here everyone “weasels their way out on their own” and constantly looking for compromises.
This edition is dedicated to civil and socio-economic integration strategies. What should Europe do to facilitate the integration of migrants in society? Which ideas have proven their worth? How can culture help? Some 40 authors (including Umberto Eco, Francis Fukuyama, Bassam Tibi, Zygmunt Bauman, Richard Sennett and others) from 20 countries around the world have searched for answers to these and many other questions within the framework of the theme.
