Piero Favero ha tradotto il suo saggio sui Veneti antichi pensando in particolare a quei Veneti di seconda o terza generazione che conoscono l’Inglese meglio dell’Italiano e che, pur avidi di sapere la storia veneta, non trovano in Inglese nessun libro in commercio che ne parli. Quasi niente in inglese riguarda inoltre la storia della Serenissima, ecco perché ha deciso di inserire nel suo libro la storia della nascita di Venezia.
Ecco qui un breve estratto da “King Arthur’s Tribe. A New Anthropology of the Veneti”:
“Why has the character of King Arthur been so successful over the centuries? The answer can be found in the aura of mystery surrounding his figure. Indeed, there are no certainties about him. We do not know when he was born and where his kindgom was. In order to solve the mystery, it would thus be of great help to identify “the tribe that created his myth”. Could it have been the Veneti? Although the Veneti were a very ancient and fascinating people who were scattered in various areas of Europe, they have oft been studied only by restricted groups of experts. It is now hightime to spread this knowledge among a more general audience of history lovers. This volume thus sets out to offer an innovative study on the Veneti of the Atlantic and Baltic areas through a comprehensive analysis of historical, archaeological and mythological aspects. Authoritative international sources have been incorporated to guide the reader toward an intriguing reinterpretation of the ancient Veneti which reveals unsuspected aspects of a far-gone world, which was so different from ours. What emerges is a forgotten heritage that culturally links distant areas of Europe.”
