Gabriele Romagnoli
Coraggio! (Courage!)
Feltrinelli, October 2016, 104 pages

“Among the many factors that make Gabriele Romagnoli a good friend to anyone who loves reading (his news reports, his commentary, his novels), there’s the ability to never be predictable, the carefully cultivated gift for entertaining.”
la Repubblica

“Gabriele Romagnoli has an impressive ability to collect instants, while always keeping an original point of view on the world. It is worth hearing him out even just for the rhythm of his blunt, essential writing, his wit and the diversity of his stories.”

A personal catalogue of courageous men, a necessary exercise in philosophy of the existence.

In Courage! Gabriele Romagnoli draws up his own personal catalogue of courageous men, like Èric Abidal, the soccer player who won the Champions League when he was diagnosed with cancer only a few months earlier; Captain Rowan, who was instructed to deliver a message to the leader of the rebellion in the heart of the Cuban jungle; Senator Ross, saving the presidency of the United States with his vote; or even a literary character like Stoner, and his “no” that ends up defining a life and a career.

Romagnoli wants the readers by his side, so that everyone can recognise the humility and the beauty of that kind of courage that makes life a fair life.

From the author of Solo bagaglio a mano (Carry-On Only), here’s another necessary exercise in philosophy of the existence.
