Philidor il musicista che giocava a scacchi [unread by me]di Corrado RollinAlla voce "Scacchi" dell'Encyclopedie di Diderot, il cavaliere di Jaucourt scrive: "Si capisce facilmente dal numero dei pezzi, dalla diversità dei loro movimenti e dal numero delle case, quanto questo gioco debba essere difficile.Tuttavia a Parigi abbiamo avuto un giovane di 18 anni che giocò contemporaneamente 2 partite di scacchi senza vedere la scacchiera. Questo giovane si chiama Philidor". Questo libro (che non contiene partite) rappresenta uno spaccato di vita settecentesca. L'ambivalenza del personaggio Philidor, diviso tra due grandi amori, la musica e gli scacchi, emana un fascino particolare, l'avventurosità della sua vita, inoltre, non può non accendere la nostra curiosità moderna.

Wittniet, thank you. Philidor is such an interesting person, successful musician, and successful chess player... It seems the book was never translated into any other language than Italian (i love Italian by the way), since 1994 when it was published. Or am I wrong ? I would very much like to read it.
I think so - there seems to be only the Italian edition.
II do not own the book and I did not read it - mine is just a signaling
"I Was Tortured in the Pasadena Jailhouse!" by Bobby Fischer. Excellent glimpse into the mind of everyone's favorite schizo woodpusher. American hasn't had such a loon since Paul Morphy was yelling on the streets of New Orleans.
:) thanks !
