The year is 1880. Bologna booms. The railroads were built just a few years ago and Italy is still young. Things are moving quickly, faster than ever before in the city’s history.

You are Andrea Satutto, the famous Italian detective, and you have been called in to figure out another "unsolvable" murder. You arrived from Rome this morning and, as usual, your mind is thrilled. Another mystery! You grin in excitement.

The victim is the infamous and affluent Giacomo di Pepoli, the head of Bologna’s finest family.

Will you be able to solve this one?

was a very nice expérience. But maybe better to do it when the weather is good. With the sun and the hot it was a bit difficult (easier with some breaks for beers).
