(versione italiana di tutto il post qui, sul blog del grande Michele Di Paola, coautore di questo articolo) This is a good story that shows how bad guys don’t always win. And when Star Wars is involved, this is particularly true. A couple of weeks ago, the publishing colossus Electronic Arts (which owns other immensely […]Read More “Star Wars: Battlefront II”: where is the line between gambling and gaming?
The latest film in the DC cinematic universe is… disappointing. There isn’t much more I can say. True. It was marked by a troubled production history: Zack Snyder (“Man of Steel”, “Batman vs Superman”) had to abandon the project mid-way for the tragic death of his daughter, and this led Joss Whedon (“The Avengers” and “The […]Read More “Justice League” (2017): a totally forgettable movie that risks nothing, and achieves nothing
The third (and a half) edition of “Share the right story” (twitter, facebook page) has taken place in a beautiful October week in Ajdovščina (yes, I have to google it every time), in Slovenia. We were hosted by our friends of Društvo Center za pomoč mladim. I mean, just check the video made by the amazing […]Read More Share the Right Story (Slovenia) – a little darker, but still a hero’s journey
The sequel to the cult classic film that has invented Cyberpunk has been out for more than a weekend, and something strange is happening.

Have you ever wondered what happens if you answer to those annoying spam emails? No, not the type about penis enlargement – that strangely enough, dropped to a minimum for me a couple of years ago.

Our Hungarian friends in Ecoservice were hosting an Erasmus+ training course trying to combine storytelling, nature and political activism. Bára and yours truly were there as trainers. What a Story! was the title. And What a Story it was. Hungary is an island, completely surrounded by Europe. This is the distinct feeling I have, every […]Read More What a story! Trying to understand the heart of the heart of Europe
The best way to survive an extremely hot summer is to leave home, go to a cold and rainy place, feel miserable and regret it. But also, in the process, have an amazing experience and come back with a legendary treasure. This could be the short (unofficial) description for “The Heart of the Story“, which […]Read More How I lost & found my Heart in Findhorn – again
After a period of extended laziness and unemployment in which I was mostly writing about other topics, here I am back with the story of a training course. More precisely, the second edition of “Game of Wellness”. The first edition was very successful, a great experience for all of us involved (here you can find […]Read More GOW2: our training course on wellness strikes back
Let’s start from what “Dunkirk” is NOT. It ain’t an “epic war movie”. So forget the big action of “Pearl Harbor”, and the hyper realistic blood & gore of “Saving Private Ryan”. The latest movie from Christopher Nolan is also not: – all about big explosions: there are a few, they are impressive, but not […]Read More “Dunkirk”: a personal, gripping war story that is NOT a war movie.
Does the name Ugo Fantozzi sound familiar? And what about Geometra Filini? Or Contessa Serbelloni Mazzanti Vien dal Mare? Simply put, we are talking about some of the most influential Italian literature and TV in the post-war era. Which also happens to be absolutely hilarious. Curious? Because you should be. If you have an interest in […]Read More Who is Ugo Fantozzi (and 5 reasons why you should care)
