The sea and its the marvellous life are the focus of the meeting with the well-known writer Fabio Genovesi, author of “Il calamaro gigante” (Feltrinelli, 2021): an exciting exploration of the abysses and the secrets that the sea hides under “its skin, its salty and shiny skin”, retracing centuries of history, among extravagant explorers and irregular scientists. A cry of love for the Earth and a call for everyone to discipline their daily lives in an ecological way.
Introduces Claudio De Signori, bookseller. Dialogue with the author Massimo Natale, professor of Italian Literature at the University of Verona.
