This book, the result of a several years study of written and oral traditions and of archaeological investigations on the field, explains and justifies a sensational hypothesis: a well-defined site located in Sicily could be the real burial place of the legendary Cretan King Minos. To confirm this suggestive archaeological hypothesis, several evidences are provided coming from both the historical sources on the sad ending of the adventure of King Minos in Sicily and from autoptic, topographical, toponymical and hydrographical survey made in this area. The very presence of Minos burial site in Sicily is also hand down by a valuable popular memory, collected and verified directly by the author who closes the book with these significant words: “The future for all of us – I am firmly convinced – has an ancient heart.”
