Dear friends, right tonight, on Valentine’s Day, my short American tour has ended. As I had already said on this very special page, I have shared with my audience the song ‘Autumn’, which I have studied for this very special occasion, as, in my opinion, it is a wonderful love poem sung on an equally […]

Dear Friends,Winter does not forgive, not even when it seems mild, like this year; that’s why this morning I woke up totally voiceless. Today it is a windy and quite cold day.

These are difficult days, fraught with tension, concerns, but also full of resolutions. In this climate I have decided to release a TV interview on my personal spiritual path; the path that has led me to believe in the One who made the world. I know, through my personal experience, that this confidence, this belief, […]

Sometimes I wonder where we will end up.No doubt, the powerful communication devices are more and more efficient, amazing and essential; they help connecting people, reducing distances and this is simply miraculous. Unfortunately, at the same time, they create distance between the ones that are close, living under the same roof, traveling in the same […]

Given back to its rural landscape, that magic space dedicated to silence, has returned to the silence of the open countryside as of today.It is even difficult to think of what has witnessed – of the alchemy it has spread all around – this valley among the rolling hills surrounding my little Lajatico: and yet, […]

Dear diary,I am back asking for shelter, while I am again above the clouds lulled by the constant noise of the airplane: a buzz that punctually accompanies this travelling of mine around the world, this strange sort of accelerated pace, written in my destiny and to which I am, apparently, accustomed (but that, when I […]

Dear Diary, How I’ve neglected you! Partly because, as you surely know, I’d never want to fill your pages with daily trivia, and therefore I try to reserve my entries for those very special moments I feel are worthy of note. This time, however, I’m here for the purpose of a little confession:  You know how the […]

Dear diary, I realize that I have neglected you very much, but if you only knew how many things I have had to do, and how many I should have told you. There would have not been the time. Suffice it to say that tonight has ended the week of events, organized thanks to more than […]
