This previously unpublished treatise dates back to 1776-1777. It was seized and destroyed before being disseminated in print in the last book burning before the French Revolution, that it anticipates. The volume offers a radically ergonomic view of society where everyone - aristocrats, priests, monks and nuns alike - is expected to work to achieve “public and private prosperity”. Denina is not only the erudite author of Bibliopea or the historian of Rivoluzioni d’Italia, but also a political theorist with powerful ideas, and a champion of human dignity.
