Over the centuries, along with the words of poets, novelists and essayists, Nuccio Ordine tells us how and why the classics still have so much to say about the art of living.

True to the verses of Jorge Luis Borges, Nuccio Ordine invites us to experience the same modest pride by supposing that we read (and reread) some of the most beautiful pages of world literature. After the "The Usefulness of the Useless" translated into 26 languages, Ordine continues its battle for the classics, believing that a short text can awaken the readers' curiosity and encourage them to immerse the entire opera.

In addition to being a regular lecturer in Italian literature in the University of Calabria, Nuccio Ordine is often a guest professor at various universities in the United States, France and Germany. At the same time, he continues to write: among his books, there are three dedicated to Giordano Bruno, one to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a study of laughter, titled Theory of Short Stories and Theory of Laughter in the 16th Century and others. With this book, he continues the unequal struggle with institutions and a "modern" thinking, oriented primarily towards the market and the practical realization of the youth. And he does this, praising reading and immortal authors without whom we won't be the same.
