In 1991, while traveling by boat along the Amur River, on the border between the USSR and China, Tiziano Terzani was surprised at the news of the coup against Gorbachev in Moscow. He decided to document the collapse of the Soviet power in Asia, moving on to Siberia, Turkestan, Caucasus, and finally Moscow. It is a journey through the ruins of a dream, from which came a bitter book, Goodnight, Mr. Lenin. Began as a travel story, the book turns into a thriller. How and why communism died? Who is the killer? Where is the body? The fate of the statues of Lenin, then ubiquitous, helps to answer these questions. The contribution focuses on representative methods and the interpretation of this monumental heritage.
