Guest in Turin

Germany is the guest of Salone del Libro di Torino, the Italian equivalent of Frankfurter Buchmesse. So I post the first Goethe novel I read (even if mine was published by Einaudi and not Feltrinelli). Today at Fahrenheit, the radio program on Rai Radio 3 specialized on books, Guenther Walraff was guest.

Inventory: loading German!


In a few days I will switch from an Italian-speaking world to a German-speaking one, for good. A loading program could come in handy. My German is no longer what it used to be 20 years ago, but I’m confident. The full immersion will be positive and I will retrieve all my files. Once you learn German you never forget it.

Learning languages is still one of the best investments I can think of. At any age. And latitude. But also a fabulous adventure in the culture of a country.


I am always amazed by the number of Germans who speak Italian. Mainly for the pleasure and fun of tasting our fat, sunny vowels.

Kennst Du das Land, wo die Zitronen blühn…

Mmmmmm! Of all the perfumes, the scent of lemon flowers is our favourite one! Here a mini citrus fruit is sunbathing, its size smaller than a 2 cent coin.

Time for us too to sit in the shade, enjoy the sun and the al fresco lunch in Monti.
