Hello everybody,

do you know who the person in the picture is?

well, he is one of the greatest figure of the so called "middle age", Frederick II of Svevia, emperor of the "Holy Roman Empire".

Maybe he has nothing to do with the game of chess, but for me he was very important in that sense, because it was thanks to my interest in that period of our history that I discovered Chess!!

So I decided to dedicate my first post to him.

I'll use this webspace to talk about what my interests are: chess, of course, but also history, geopolitics and something else.

I hope nobody will mind if sometimes I'll post articles in italian, because I'm from Italy and many of my sources are written in this language.
