Memory, a precious companion on mankind’s path, is still largely unknown and is appreciated especially when one begins to get weak, when it has not yet vanished but is about to do so, leaving people in a state of terrifying disorientation.
The author, no longer young (he was born in 1927) and showing the first symptoms of discernment, calls all his experience and knowledge back to him to reveal a truly enviable wealth of life. The funny advices to mankind to "keep, preserve memory for as long as it lasts both in the old people as they feel the darkness of sunsets and in the young people before they get caught by early pathologies and psychic decay " range from literature to tongue-twisters and, above all, they warn against the E-Memory, a surrogate of reality that shakes young minds by making them slaves in the “stalinization” of thought.
Think about it, readers.
