Lucida

Ricostruzione chiara e intelligente trent’anni di storia, con un pizzico di ironia che rende l’ascolto estremamente piacevole. Bravi.

ExTallinn ,

amazing, but

This podcast is amazing.
Episode 9, to be honest, is full of general thoughts on Italy and Italians and sounds a bit offensive.

lacone adriano ,

Left and right terrorism

I’m really enjoying this series but please remember that most deaths during those ‘years of lead’ were caused by fascist terrorists NOT by communist ones. You guys only mentioned the far left. For the rest it’s a great podcast that more Italians should listen to, since Silvio is still around...
