Alexander the Great & Hellenism
Welcome and thanks for being here!
I’m Elena I have a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Communication from the Università del Piemonte Orientale (Vercelli, Italy) and if you’ve come across Alessandro III di Macedonia – Alexander the Great & Hellenism you should be interested in Alexander the Great. 😀 Well, because this site is entirely dedicated to him and I hope you’ll like it and will be useful to you!
I’ve been collecting books about him for years and I thought of opening this website with the intention of being helpful in the huge and infinite bibliography on this incredible character and also of finding other great fans of him like me! But that’s not all: I’d like to be a point of reference for fans of Alexander the Great and Hellenism. Over time I intend to collect everything I find about him (and by everything I mean everything)! I know, it’s impossible, but I like the idea of trying.
The website-blog is constantly expanding because I continue to add material of all kinds. Don’t expect to find yourself in a fanpage about Alexander with fan reviews and similar things because my goal is not to be an influencer but to speak honestly about Alexander hoping to offer you a useful tool and as objective as possible. I have no obligation to anyone but only to myself to be honest. I want to slowly try to improve myself as much as possible and I don’t want to pass myself off as who I’m not. I read academic and research material and try to have a less “blogger” approach but I’m not an academic, I’m just a very curious big fan.
My playful, humble and curious approach is reflected in the four mottos I alternate every month.

Attention please: the material you will find here will never be the complete text of academic articles, newspapers or other, but will be the advertising material easily available on official sites or on sites deemed reliable if there are any, otherwise you will find my review, comments or thoughts. So don’t ask me to post pictures of entire newspaper articles or anything because I won’t. My intention is to be as helpful as I can in your search for material and in deciding which to read or not, not to be a place to find the material. I make reports with comments and more, then it’s up to you if, where and how to find this material.
