I write to tell stories

The Book – An apparently perfect life – by Michelle Hunziker.

When I finished reading this book I asked myself this: as soon as Michelle Hunziker sent the members of a sect to hell that had ruined her family, love life, heart and soul…. it jumped out for Michelle Hunziker the Prince Charming.

A case?

The doubt has arisen that those same people who congratulate those who have the strength to get out of a sect and a condition of psychological slavery, are the same people who years before have thrown that person / victim into the labyrinth of psychological manipulation, separating her from her family, letting her go through financial and emotional hell for the sole purpose of taking her where they wanted or who wanted her for himself and see if she managed to survive the path of the mouse in the labyrinth. One of the many subtle and shameful ways of playing with people’s lives.

I hope to be wrong about my reflection, but the doubt remains.

And I’m afraid that the sentimental relationships and the women desired by important men are manipulated and instrumentalized in order to bend a man’s will by destroying his heart and thus knocking him out.

I read other books on the modus operandi of people affiliated with sects and I realized that out of 10 known people, 8 are (sometimes unconsciously) part of some congregation of sociopaths who have no respect for the feelings and life of others, often characterized by an unashamed greed for money and material goods bordering on madness.

Destroying the life of a family and children by manipulating their parents for the sole purpose of separating them and obtaining a “toy” for the love affairs/friends of the beds or worse still “a trophy to conquer” is a crime against humanity.



The Book – To save the living (Per salvare i viventi) – by Grazia Tomasi.

To understand the present and the States of today and our civilization, it is necessary to study the institutional reforms of the past.


The Book – Stories – by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann.

An elegant and refined narration.



The Book – The fire in Berlin (Il rogo di Berlino) – by Helga Schneider.

The author retraces with ruthless realism the dramatic moments of the Second World War she lived when she was a child and remembers the meeting with Adolf Hitler.
A biographical account of how war, as human madness, can deprive human beings of all their dignity, all their rights and of life itself and above all of their own humanity.


The Book – Goodbye, Columbus – by Philip Roth.

The sharp style that probes the human soul: I especially love this author,

in addition to the smoothness of the written pages.


The Book – Stories of the old wood (Storie del bosco antico) – by Mauro Corona.

Sad stories, some sweet, but others are really sad stories.

This author is good, but I don’t like him.


The Book – Heike starts breathing again (Heike riprende a respirare) – by Helga Schneider.

The extraordinary ability to paint human emotions, with simplicity and pungent realism, is the characteristic of this wonderful author.

War destroys nations, cities, exterminates peoples, divides families, changes people, but can never bend the will to live of those who love life.

The world seen through the eyes of a child abandoned by all, who does not lose hope, who lives intensely, who survives like everyone else and fights against an evil stepmother and eventually escapes in search of herself.

A child who just wants to be loved and protected, as it should be, will see her desires realized, because the universe has the extraordinary ability to heal the hearts and existences sent to pieces by the selfishness of adults.



The Book – Making a good writer great – by Linda Seger.

This book is an enlightening writing manual, capable of dispelling all the doubts of aspiring screenwriters:

you will find, by reading these pages, how to put the ideas of your stories in order and structure them.

For me, every page written by Linda was a source of innovation and clarification for the development of my

creative writing process, both for writing the scripts, but also for writing novels.

“The craft of writing”, through Linda’s technique, becomes clear.



The Book – Two million kisses – by Alessandro Milan.

I read this book just released in September: pages full of sweetness, like the first book written by the author “You live inside me”.


The Book – Last letters of Jacopo Ortis – by Ugo Foscolo.

Letters written by a heart in love, heartbroken and killed by lost love.

Ugo Foscolo
