Alla vita così com’è

    In regalo per te i primi capitoli de Il bamboccione   Ognuno conduce una battaglia sacrosanta per il proprio stato sociale.

Karl Marx between consumerism and meditation

Karl Marx   In my book Dear costumer, I write that Comrade Terapia, sifting through the analysis of the capitalist society operated by Marx, repeats the concept that relationships between people are mediated through goods, which are therefore not authentic. Listening him, there is the imperturbable and dopey cashier Vacca, for whom, with the word…

So you want to be a writer, uh?

writer Translated by Emilia Maiella Art in human life has a fundamental function, whether it is an element of evasion or culture, it represents a gaze on the past, on the present and on the future.

Is Facebook dying?

    Facebook Facebook is dying. I am not talking about numerical issues that I assume to be thriving – recent surveys by industry experts confirm this because FB holds 77% of social network traffic, along with its sister companies Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram.

Il ventre di Parigi

      Iniziato e terminato a Villa Lazzaroni, sulla Via Appia a Roma, Il ventre di Parigi di Emile Zola, ha rappresentato per me un momento di lettura tra i più appaganti. Mi ero completamente annullato. Da una panchina del parco vivevo l’incantesimo di trovarmi tra i chioschi delle Halles e le contrade parigine,…

Ex cathedra avrei voluto scriverlo io

        Doveva essere solo l’appendice a una mia inutile biografia, poi ho preferito raccontare.
