The interview

What is the last book you read? And what will be the next one?
““L’anima segreta delle cose” (The secret soul of things), a book about Tobia Scarpa edited by Elisa Pajer and Elena Brigi. The next one is there on the bedside table together with some others waiting … I think I will choose “Plant revolution” by Stefano Mancuso. 

Your next trip?
I would like to try and discover America …

Favorite color?
This is a difficult question … I love yellow.

What is the plant that matters most to you?
I would say the cypress that welcomes me at the entrance to my house …

Where would you live?
Here in Lodi, where I’ve lived for thirty years. Elsewhere I would feel like a tourist, now even in Viterbo, which is my hometown.

What is your favorite historical era?
I would say I am lucky to live in this age – so far we managed well enough. I am very concerned about our future … 

Can you describe in short a scene that represents “beauty and elegance” for you?
I can say that I was enchanted by the thick tail of “Muffa”, our cat, fluidly teasing the beautiful face of my daughter Luna. 

Do you still play?
Yes, very seriously!

What is a garden for you?
A stimulating, comfortable and comforting place.
