Un brindisi alla malattia is a direct poetic testimony of Corrado Paina's extended affliction with a long illness that he is surviving.

A long odyssey and at the same time impossible to avoid, a true journey through the physical and psychological phases that the illness imposes on the patient. It is the author himself that evokes this journey as a metaphor, being himself an avid traveller.  Paina seems to see every aspect of his own existence, including the most difficult ones as indeed the illness itself, as a journey, a crossing that leads to new places even when one is set in a specific space because, in the end, it is the traveller who has actually changed. 

Luca Somigli

Readings will be presented in both Italian and English.

Light refreshments will follow.
