About the event

Currently reading in January 2024: Seta, by Alessandro Baricco

France, sea voyages, the scent of mulberry trees in Lavilledieu, steam trains, Hélène's voice. Hervé Joncour continued to tell the story of his life, as he had never done so in his life. "This is not a novel. And not even a story. This is a story. It begins with a man crossing the world, and ends with a lake standing there, on a windy day. The man's name is Hervé Joncour. We don't know about the lake."

La Francia, i viaggi per mare, il profumo dei gelsi a Lavilledieu, i treni a vapore, la voce di Hélène. Hervé Joncour continuò a raccontare la sua vita, come mai, nella sua vita, aveva fatto. "Questo non è un romanzo. E neppure un racconto. Questa è una storia. Inizia con un uomo che attraversa il mondo, e finisce con un lago che se ne sta lì, in una giornata di vento. L'uomo si chiama Hervé Joncour. Il lago non si sa."
