A hombros de gigantes representa para los lectores de Eco un evento festivo. Lejos de las aulas universitarias, de las conferencias académicas y de las ceremonias de honor Eco escribe estos textos a lo largo de tres lustros, para entretener a los numerosísimos espectadores de la Milanesiana, el festival creado y dirigido por Elisabetta Sgarbi.
Son textos que se inspiran a menudo en el tema central elegido cada año en la Milanesiana, pero que luego recorren ríos de repertorios que beben de la filosofía, la literatura, la estética, la ética y los medios de comunicación para devolvernos, en un lenguaje afable, imbuido de ironía, a veces lúdico o mordaz, la quintaesencia del universo de Eco.
