NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK – NO ES DEMASIADO PEDIR – NON È CHIEDERE TROPPO. Series of conversations
Maurizio Maggiani, Writer interviewed by Roberto Fontolan, Journalist.
This session is part of a series of three video interviews with José Ángel González Sainz, Maurizio Maggiani e Cornel West-Robert George. These interviews were recorded in the places where the guests live and work in order to try to discover their relationship to reality and to delve into the questions resulting from this relationship, especially in a moment that is so extreme for all humanity. Is it possible to move from a closed and rigid ideology to a rediscovery of reality as an opportunity and as a calling? Who are the people – teachers and friends – who can provide support during this human adventure, without distracting from the essential questions, and instead continuously reawakening them thanks to their presence? Finally, which contribution can an author make to the reconstruction using the tools of his trade? The title is based upon the lyrics of a famous song by Bob Dylan, “Floater”, «Sometimes somebody wants you to give something up / And tears or not, it’s too much to ask».
