"In every part of the body in movement there was, as it were, an unconscious, involuntary force that seemed to urge Cecilia forward, as if she were a sleepwalker with closed eyes and darkened mind. This force drew her away from me and consequently made her real to me.

Boredom is the suspension of all relationship with reality.

Yes indeed, I was pleased that she should be happy, but above all I was pleased that she should exist, away there in the island of Ponza, in a manner which was her own and which was different from mine and in contrast with mine, with a man who was not myself, far away from me. I was here in the hospital, I repeated to myself from time to time, and she was at Ponza with the actor, and we were two different people and she had nothing to do with me and I had nothing to do with her, and she was apart from me, as I was apart from her. And finally I no longer desired to possess her but to watch her live her life, just as she was, that is, to contemplate her in the same way that I contemplate the tree outside my window. This contemplation would never come to an end for the simple reason that I did not wish it to come to an end, that is, I did not wish the tree, or Cecilia, or any other object outside myself, to become boring to me and consequently cease to exist.

<<Quando Rivera se ne andò, nessuno lo vide a parte noi.>>
La casa editrice @tunue ha anche una collana di romanzi, scritti da autori esordienti. È, infatti, il primo romanzo di Luciano Funetta, che attraverso il suo protagonista Rivera, collezionista di serpenti, ci racconta dell'universo della pornografia d'arte, che si rivelerà essere ben più tenebroso di ciò che appare.

The fourth and final Neapolitan novel ends the story of Elena and Lila. Maturity brings new challenges into their lives making their bond stronger than ever but happiness and peace of mind is never quite there. Elena leaves her safe family life behind to fulfil her adolescent dream of being with Nino while Lila is securing her role in the old neighbourhood as the respectable and influential businesses owner. Their unique friendship stands the test of time but is friendship enough to get them through hardship and despair? 
I have to admit that I rarely read series. However, Elena Ferrante brought a lot of power and emotion into the Neapolitan novels making each book great on its own. What a wonderful journey it's been!

“I see how nature, to complete its scheme
Can fail in nothing...
As the divine decides, so men are wrought
To be themselves. Now what was held concealed
Behind your back you see before you.”

I have to comment--No feathering on the print, but the damn ink bleed is awful!
😪 #insomniaadvice : this book is a magical sleeping pill. Ive kept this by my bed for about a year now since discovering its powers.🦄 It is SO friggin weird and reads like I'm already dreaming. Sends my mind floating off with an older style but very easy-reading narrative that is just engaging enough not to be restlessly bored, but not so much that one would care at all about what happens next to where they couldn't stop reading at any given point. Only book that does it for me. HIGHLY recommend this or something of the like to those with (particularly restless mind- based) insomnia. Dont recommend the phone at all or any reading that is either too captivating/ logical or intetesting (in a non weird/dreamy) way Thanks #Pinocchio for all thr restfull nights. I love u, puppet boy!!! 😙💕🤥 #insomnia#sleep#childrensliterature#italianliterature#carlocollodi#sleeptips

🌄 'TRUDGING THROUGH TUSCANY' TRAVELOGUE n°4 🌄
.
I've been so impatient to share with you this particular part of the travelogue 😄👣 I'm sure I don't have to tell you what important part the town of Volterra played in recent YA vampire literature! 📚👿 I saw no Volturi crawling around in dark alleys, unfortunately, but it's been an incredible experience all the same!
.
🏰: Volterra.
.
🔰Built as a walled mountain-top town with surviving structures from the Etruscan, Roman and medieval times, Volterra (Velàthre, Velathri or Felathri in Etruscan; Volaterrae in Latin) was one of the twelve major settlements of the Etruscan League from the 8th-7th century BC. It became an ally to Rome at the end of the 3rd century BC, a bishop's residence in the 5th century AD, and was granted episcopal power during the 12th. After, it was conquered and administered by Florentine forces until 1530, when it came under the control of the Medici family and a part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.🔰

👉 Palazzo dei Priori, the town hall, located in Piazza dei Priori, great example of medieval Tuscan square;
👉 Detail of the medieval facade of Palazzo dei Priori;
👉 Detail of entrance arch to the Piazza dei Priori, connecting Palazzo dei Priori to the historical Palazzo Pretorio;
👉 Characteristic lamp-post with a bronze griffin engraving, with the historical striped rear side of Palazzo dei Priori in the background;
👉 Etruscan City Walls surrounding Volterra (shot taken in proximity to the Volaterrae Roman Theatre excavation site);
👉 Flowers growing in the park just outside the City Walls;
👉 Baptistery of San Giovanni (second half of the 13th century);
👉 Facade of the Volterra Cathedral (enlarged in the 13th century after an earthquake);
👉 Landscape from the square housing the Cathedral and the Baptistery, with historical houses, buildings and balconies.

Leisure time well spent 😊Dante's words are like food for my soul. Every phrase, every word, has meaning and depth. Into the dark wood we descend...🌲🌑🌲🔥
