Umbertoeco
Umberto Eco (Alexandrie, 5 /1/1932–Milan 16/2/2016) est un intellectuel et écrivain italien contemporain. Érudit spécialisé dans les domaines de la sémiotique et de la communication, il est mondialement connu por ses romans. C'est avec un premier roman, "Le Nom de la rose", paru en 1980, qu'il se fait connaître mondialement. L'ouvrage est vendu à des millions d'exemplaires et amplement traduit. Umberto Eco déploie une histoire médiévale dense et complexe et sollicite le lecteur avec des références et pastiches.  Son deuxième roman, "Le Pendule de Foucalt" connaît également un grand succès. Il continue à publier des essais théoriques comme "Les saumon" et des romans, dont le dornier "Le Cimetière de Prague", est paru en 2011 chez Grasset.
