The book, mainly aimed towards teenagers between 11 and 14, is set in 1568 and tells a story about a boy from a humble background called Bernardo who risks his own life to bring back to light a mysterious object.
Which was created more than three thousand years before by the father of all alchemists Hermes Trismegistus.
The object has the power to give immortality and turn all that is negative into positive.
This object, namely the emerald Table, was lying in darkness in the dungeons of the Castle of Peschiera Borromeo, near Milan.
Its recovery, after hundreds of ups and downs, completely changes the boy’s life and Bernardo is eventually elected – against his will – arbiter in the eternal struggle between good and bad.
Beginning with the table itself, the events that take place in the tale have actual historical references.
The concept of the table is taken from King Salomon’s famous writings, Clavicula Salomonis, which tell of how the King poured all his knowledge into a table and subsequently, to avoid letting it fall into wicked hands, made it disappear until it was discovered by Hermes Trismegistus.
