ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Tanti anni prima Lorenza era una ragazza bella e insopportabile, dal fascino abbagliante. La donna che un pomeriggio di fine inverno Guido Guerrieri si trova di fronte nello studio non le assomiglia. Non ha nulla della lucentezza di allora, è diventata una donna opaca. Gli anni hanno infierito su di lei e, come se non bastasse, il figlio Iacopo è in carcere per omicidio volontario. Guido è tutt'altro che convinto, ma accetta lo stesso il caso; forse anche per rendere un malinconico omaggio ai fantasmi, ai privilegi perduti della giovinezza. Comincia così, quasi controvoglia, una sfida processuale ricca di colpi di scena, un appassionante viaggio nei meandri della giustizia, insidiosi e a volte letali. Una scrittura inesorabile e piena di compassione, in equilibrio fra il racconto giudiziario - distillato purissimo della vicenda umana - e le note dolenti del tempo che trascorre e si consuma.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Measure Of Time" Many years before, Lorenza was a beautiful and unbearable girl with a dazzling charm. The woman that Guido Guerrieri is facing in the studio one afternoon in late winter does not look like her. She has nothing of the luster then, she has become a dull woman. The years have raged on her and, to make matters worse, her son Iacopo is in jail for voluntary homicide. Guido is far from convinced, but he accepts the case anyway; perhaps also to make a melancholy tribute to ghosts, to the lost privileges of youth. Thus begins, almost unwillingly, a procedural challenge full of twists and turns, an exciting journey into the depths of justice, insidious and sometimes lethal. A masterful novel. An inexorable and full of compassion writing, in balance between the judicial story - the purest distillate of the human story - and the sad notes of the time that it spends and is consumed.
