I walked among the stands in the long corridor of the Palazzo dei Congressi in Pisa, which every year in autumn hosts the Pisa Book Festival.
It usually rains and the bad weather undoubtedly makes it more pleasant to seek refuge among the confusion, the smell of the freshly printed books and the coffee that accompany you while you are looking for something new or something that may have escaped your attention or a classic you’ve never read or read and forgotten.
It was November 2018.
I was visibly moved when I shook hands with Aldo Putignano, the editor of Homo Scrivens.
I introduced myself, name, surname and profession “a lawyer with a great passion for writing!”
It is this passion that makes me write at night, after long days of work, that draws life from the part of me that is deeper and less controllable: it’s there and it must come out.
Aldo listened to me without interrupting, his mind wasn’t elsewhere.
When we said goodbye, he asked me to send him my work. And now “The last priest” is in print and will soon be distributed.
