Toledo, year 1560. Lombard mathematician Juanelo Turriano, former watchmaker to Emperor Charles V, plans to carry out his most ambitious dream: building a device to direct water from the Tajo River to the Alcazar of Toledo, even if he has to finance the whole experiment himself.

Twenty five years later the king sends his architect, Juan de Herrera, to supervise the reconstruction of the Alcazar and of Turriano''s water castles. A friend of Turriano''s, Herrera, however, was driven by a different reason: locating Don Antonio, an invincible robot whose design was coveted by all and was also the source of all sorts of troubles for his inventor.

Memoirs of a Wooden Man displays before the reader a dazzling fresco of the sixteenth century, an impressive chiaroscuro full of danger, conspiracy and adventures, where the star of the show is an honorable and honest man. Undeniably, this novel has all the ingredients of a timeless classic.
