The disappearance of Majorana

Between departure and arrival on a trip by sea from Palermo to Naples, on March 26, 1938, the traces of the thirty-year-old Sicilian physical Ettore Majorana are lost, defined by stopping a genius of the stature of Galileo and Newton. Suicide, as the investigators of the time want to let believe, or voluntary escape from the world and, above all, by the terrible developments that such an acute and brilliant mind can have read in the future of science, close to the tuning of the atomic bomb? On this question, Sciascia builds one of his most intense novels for the finesse of the analysis and immodeship in unspoken motives, as in the logic and secret ethics of Majorana.
