Encounter with Giuliano da Empoli.

Da Empoli was a political advisor, in particular to the former Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi. He directs the Volta think tank in Milan and teaches at Sciences Po Paris. His penultimate book, « Les ingénieurs du chaos » (Lattès, 2019), dedicated to the new masters of political propaganda, has been translated into twelve languages. A success with audiences and critics since its release in the spring, « Le Mage du Krem­lin » earned its author the Grand Prix du roman de l’Académie française 2022, as well as being a finalist for the Prix Goncourt.
