Una Storia Americana is an engaging account of the political history of the United States. Starting with the biographies of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the 46th President and his Vice President, Franceso Costa reconstructs the key milestones that led these two members of the Democratic Party to win the election, defeating the outgoing President, Donald Trump. In fact, Trump’s America, with its extreme tendencies, has left the new administration with the tough task of rebuilding a weakened and damaged nation. Una Storia Americana is a compelling tale that shows, even beyond any proven political skills, the human qualities of Biden and Harris.
