I write to tell stories

Archive for the ‘Books’ Category


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


The Book – Mysteries, crimes and unusual stories of Milan – by Paolo Sciortino.

Particular, interesting book, which reveals many curiosities of the city of Milan and its past.

Paolo Sciortino


The Book – The sign of the four – By Arthur Conan Doyle.

A story of treasures, deceptions and mysteries: it keeps the reader glued from the first to the last page.



The Book – You listening to me (Tu che mi ascolti) – by #Alberto #Bevilacqua.

Pages full of infinite #sweetness.
