What if people were books? What if we could leaf trought the most intimate pages of an unknown soul? What if we could listen to his or her voice and read his or her story and emotions in the eyes?
Narrarsi è disporsi lla comprensione della propria vita, ri-conoscendo, ovvero conoscendo nuovamente ciò che si è vissuto.
Quando si racconta e si condivide una storia propria, in qualche modo muta l’abitudine, cambia il punto di vista e i canoni di giudizio sulla realtà.

Trying to not collude with prejudice



The book is a person.
It as a story, his aneddote, it’s prepare it to tell and share with the readers, one by one, like a book of paper. 


Editor and book cover, he’s at the service of the book to prepare the story and write down a small description that enjoy the readers to choose him, like the side of the book cover. He walk with the book and the reader to make them meet at half road.


Courios and awake, he knows that he’s listen to a real story, nothing more, he doesen’t know that that story can change him, or maybe yes.

I participate in a Living Library because I think that the stories of the people have great wealth, by carefully handling, sensitivity and, at the same time that you feel in full voice.


The Living Library is a small community workshop.

Anders Carlson

I’m a librarian because I like to move me with the history of people and I like to try to bring this emotion on a sheet of paper.
