Un omaggio a Sergio Romano? Della differenza che corre tra il mestiere di storico e il mestiere di colui che racconta storie - Referring to Seneca’s well-known satirical text, the article makes fun of the recent congress held in Sergio Romano’s honour. Contesting both his supposed moderatism, and his historical journalism, the article wants to show the factiousness of his political orientation and, more importantly, to draw attention to the differences - primarily, methodological - which distinguish the profession of the historian from that of someone who ‘tells stories’.
