The book in the 1st Edition of January 2020, was the subject of great interest because it offers answers to questions about the mystery of the architecture of Ravenna, where Theodoric had his Mausoleum built in 520 d. C. The authors did their research which led them from Ravenna to Istanbul and then to Azerbaijan, the territory that in ancient times had been the Persian Empire. Precisely in those territories of the Near East, decagonal-shaped Mausoleums have been found as for the Mausoleum of Ravenna. This fact prompted the authors to continue and deepen the research.
