Simon Sebag Montefiore in conversation with Andrea Bernal

Cartagena 2024, 

The family forms us and is one of the aspects that all societies have in common. In The World: A Family History, the historian Simon Sebag Montefiore (UK) shows us the history of humanity through some of its most important family dynasties. Starting with the fossils of the footprints of a family who walked along a beach 950,000 years ago, the author will examine some of the families that have given shape to our world: from the Medici and the Rothschilds to the Churchills, the Kennedys, the Kims and many more. In conversation with Andrea Bernal.

Simultaneous translation from English to Spanish available
