Intervista di Alessia Mocci a Franco Rizzi: vi presentiamo il romanzo “Anni difficili”

franco-rizzi-1-1-300x256

Tutti noi corriamo il rischio di cadere in un baratro, piccolo o grande, mentre percorriamo la strada della nostra vita e tanti “furbetti” sono lì pronti per aiutarci. Dal prete che promette un felice “al di là”, magari migliore, se i tuoi beni li lasci in eredità a chi di dovere “al di qua”, per non parlare delle ciarlatane scuole di pensiero che ripropongono il ben noto “nosce te ipsum”.” – Franco Rizzi

Franco Rizzi è nato a Torino nel 1935, sin da bambino ha vissuto a Milano, città nella quale si è laureato in Ingegneria Elettrotecnica presso il Politecnico. Da giovane ha lavorato nella ditta creata da suo padre nel 1938 come progettista di impianti per il risparmio energetico. Ha dimostrato di aver capacità notevoli ed i “suoi figli di ferro” ‒ in questo modo egli stesso denomina gli apparecchi di sua progettazione ‒ sono installati in raffinerie di petrolio sparse in tutto il mondo, a bordo di molte navi ed in molte centrali termoelettriche. Lavoro che gli ha dato la possibilità di viaggiare e di conoscere paesi in modo approfondito grazie alla collaborazione con agenti locali che gli hanno mostrato l’altra faccia dell’Asia, dell’America, dell’Africa, quella non turistica.

Appassionato di letteratura e scrittura, di quel mondo artistico che instrada alla conoscenza dell’uomo e del mondo per decine di anni ha scritto migliaia di pagine di appunti che solo recentemente ha trasformato in romanzi. Storie vere, episodi vissuti in ogni parte del globo che diventano carta stampata.

Vengono così alla luce “1871 ‒ La Comune di Parigi”, “Luca Falerno ‒ Caccia nelle Murge”, “Mini ‒ Storia di un pittore”, “1945 ‒ Anno zero sul lago”, “… scrivimi!, Il delta del Nilo”, “Anni difficili” ed un neo progetto di una casa editrice con pubblicazione gratuita, La Paume Editrice.

In questa intervista puntiamo il focus sul romanzo “Anni difficili” che traccia l’Italia a cavallo tra gli anni ’70 ed ’80 divisa fra la dura lotta di classe e di ideali fra irriducibili della liberazione del 1945, seguaci del sessantotto e fazioni nostalgiche di estrema destra; la massoneria deviata che si stava formando e l’espansione sempre più energica della mafia siciliana.

5 Beautiful Countries That Are Almost Completely Untouched By Tourists

Sometimes getting to see a place before it becomes overrun with
tourists is the best way to go. Actually, not sometimes – everytime.
Tourists suck. Except me and you.

While Paris and Phuket have lots of charm, they’re also overloaded
with people from around the world. These places can become as
frustrating as they are beautiful.

If you’re interested in seeing a destination without the crowds,
think about visiting one of these 5 amazing countries. They’re
relatively untouched by tourists…for now. Until the cruise ships start
stopping in Greenland at least.

5. Mauritius

Mauritius is a paradise found. It has stunning waters, beautiful beaches, and tons of privacy for you to….read a book.

Pamukkale

MAP 195 BY OBAID KHAN! TOURISM,REAL ESTATE & DENTISTRY BLOG

One of Turkey’s most famous natural wonders, the pure white travertine terraces of Pamukkale (“Cotton Castle” in English) cascade down the slope looking like an out-of-place snowfield amid the green landscape. Although the travertines are themselves a highlight of a Turkey trip, the vast and rambling ruins of Roman Hierapolis, an ancient spa town, lie on the top of this calcite hill, providing another reason to visit.

For the best photographs, come at dusk when the travertines glow as the sun sinks below the horizon.

Asking prices down by 0.2% year on year in the UK

MAP 195 BY OBAID KHAN! TOURISM,REAL ESTATE & DENTISTRY BLOG

PropertWire News!

http://www.propertywire.com

Asking prices in the UK are 0.2% below where they were in May 2018 and supply is down by 9%, according to the latest national index.

Seasonal factors lifted the average home price in England and Wales by 0.5%, but low numbers of market participants have undermined this, say the report from Home.co.uk.

It adds that month on month while prices rose in Wales, Scotland and all English regions, this was driven by hope rather than demand and the total stock for sale has increased by a mere 1.7% year on year.

London’s annualised losses have moved back slightly from 3.1% to 2.9% and now total 6.7% since the start of the price decline in May 2016. Asking price falls in the South East continued to ease to 1.5% year on year but worsened in the East to 3%.

VIAGGIO A VENEZIA, di Silvia De Angelis

viaggio a venezia4

Mary è una bella adolescente e vive in una rigogliosa fattoria nel Texas, ove condivide parte del suo tempo, con dei validi esemplari di cavalli, che ospita in attrezzate stalle e che di tanto in tanto cavalca, per respirare a “ polmoni spalancati” l’ aria del verde paesaggio.

Sua madre è soddisfatta di lei, perché è una ragazza volenterosa e sempre alla ricerca di nuovi stimoli, in cui impegnarsi seriamente.

Quest’ anno deve affrontare gli esami di diploma, quindi dedica interi pomeriggi allo studio, per completare un’ idonea preparazione e presentarsi preparata nel giorno del fatidico evento scolastico.

George è il suo ragazzo, persona molto protettiva con Mary e anch’ egli amante dei cavalli e della bellezza che offre la natura.

Nel recinto di casa Mary ospita cinque cavalli….ma la sua preferita è una femmina marrone scurissimo con una bella chioma, si chiama Terry. Anche Terry ha un debole per Mary, infatti si lascia avvicinare solo da lei, dimostrandole il suo affetto. Continua a leggere “VIAGGIO A VENEZIA, di Silvia De Angelis”

” Il sentiero della freccia ” ad Acsal; di Lia Tommi

Associazione SpazioIdea, in collaborazione con Circolo Provinciale della Stampa e Circolo Filatelico Numismatico di Alessandria, organizzano per mercoledì 22 maggio 2019 , ore 21:00, all’ Auditorium Cultura e Sviluppo, Piazza De Andrè 76, Alessandria : Marco Deambrogio in dialogo con Ketti Porceddu , “Il sentiero della freccia. Il mio viaggio in Terra Santa”

La vita di Marco Deambrogio è un susseguirsi di avventure degne di un romanzo d’altri tempi. Marco è un’anima libera che ha realizzato i suoi sogni e una testimonianza vivente di come un essere umano possa cambiare radicalmente il proprio destino e, perseverando nel coltivare il seme della speranza, risorgere ogni volta dalle proprie ceneri. In questo suo ultimo capitolo della trilogia iniziata con “Le tre vie della vita” e proseguita con “Ho incontrato Dio in bicicletta”, ci regala un altro racconto senza filtri, un dialogo profondo con le proprie emozioni più recondite sulla strada che lo conduce a Gerusalemme. Il protagonista è un uomo con due cuori: uno ribelle e fuorilegge, l’altro pacato e silente. Si imbarca su una nave mercantile, e come gli antichi pellegrini attraversa il Grande Mare per raggiungere le coste della terra Santa e mantenere fede alla parola data, sciogliendo il nodo del voto di giungere al Santo Sepolcro di Gerusalemme. Un viaggio ricco di colpi di scena che diventa una guida per vincere le nostre paure, seguire i nostri sogni e aprire i cuori all’incontro e al nuovo giorno.

Ingresso libero.
