Talking about heroes nowadays may seem out of place, at the most it could appear romantic. But have we left the time of heroes behind us? Is it really all over?

Modern sociology labels our era “post-heroic” though. Ours is an age where there is a growing need to develop group strategies; the us is becoming more and more important.

The very same sociology teaches us that human beings need models to follow. And so now we find that film, TV stars, sportsmen have replaced erstwhile heroes.

But they are figures with no specific temporal or geographic context. The product of this frenzied fantasy features characters that reflect our dreams but are unable to heal our faith in real heroism.
