L’ora del caffè
It’s time to suspend our certainties, and start a journey into the extravagant universes of others.
We can spend a lifetime arguing without ever understanding each other, particularly when we belong to different generations. It’s almost always a problem of the coordinates we use to navigate our worlds. Everyone has their own and refuses to abandon them, even for a second. Being father and daughter doesn’t make things easier.
Tired of having “empty conversations,” Giorgia and Gianrico Carofiglio sat down at a table and faced with fresh eyes some of the topics that most divided them. Issues that affect all of us such as the climate, feminism, food, politics. They haven’t overcome all their differences, but they’ve developed a series of arguments – veritable short essays, tiles of a surprising mosaic – in which both points of view are combined in surprising ways. It is a bold and cheerful wager on the possibilities of a common language, of a shared vision of the world and the future.
“We rehashed and reassembled discussions from the past that had often ended badly. This time with a spirit of curiosity and experimentation. With the conviction that if univocal answers are not found, there will always be a different way to formulate the questions.”
