A LITERARY INVITATION FOR DINNER AND TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
An autobiographical book, a true story narrated by the protagonist (and author), who at 40 gave up everything to expatriate.
In “Let me insist” the Author is mainly addressing those who are tempted to follow their dreams yet cannot find the courage to do it. He does it in his own way, let’s say, as an Italian, directly and without frills, as if the Reader and Author were sat at a table with two glasses of wine and a good Italian meal. In his case, the most difficult part of the journey has been deciding to follow his chimera. A bravery injection right in the veins for those who are thinking about it, pages written in the easy and very enjoyable style of a traveler who doesn’t want to sugar coat things – every change is an obstacle – but brings his authentic proof, as a loud and liberating “you can do it”; even more, maybe “you must do it”.

ABSTRACT: Riyadh, cancelled flight. Does getting angry help getting planes off the tarmac? No. I smile at the information desk guy, who is in no position to make any predictions. A kiosk here and there that sells brightly colored food, monochromatic coffee-cream-colored walls and ceiling, a slippery floor with a boring geometric design and a pain in the ass (my ass). I’ve counted all the floor tiles in the airport. Fourteen thousand nine hundred and twelve. I should be really annoyed but, instead, I am happy and start laughing. A year and a half ago, I kept telling myself that I was happy. Then I realized that I was lying to myself and I found the courage to uproot my life. A mammoth task. Now, I feel much closer to happiness than ever before. Believe me, it can and it must be done. Shall we discuss it over dinner? I’m buying.
