  • In 70's years, RAI called the most important Italian intellectuals (not necessarily the most famous ones), to create what was one of the masterpieces of the Italian culture: "Le Interviste Impossibili" (tr. "The Impossible Interviews" and it is both as written and audio book).
    Manganelli, Ceronetti, Sanguinetti, Arbasino, Calvino, Malerba, Castellaneta, Del Buono, Garboli, Eco, Sermonti, Spaziani, Bene, Camilleri, but there are also other extraordinary voices like those of Bonacelli, Scaccia, Poli, Gastoni, Caprioli, Fabbri, Pagni, Betti, Santuccio, Falk.
    I tried to find the English version of the text, or some subtitles, but nothing! It is too difficult to translate it, so I'll give you the link of an interview for those that could understand.
    All the interviews are eighty-two, and they are almost perfect and unforgettable. Among these, concerning the Gemini, there is the one made to ​Marcus Aurelius, and its ending is like a little metaphysical gem.

    Here is the link of the interview divided into three parts


    Negli anni 70 la Rai chiamò all’appello i più importanti intellettuali italiani (non per questo i piu famosi), creando quel che, scritto e registrato, sarebbe stato uno dei capolavori della cultura italiana: Le Interviste Impossibili.
    Manganelli, Ceronetti, Sanguinetti, Arbasino, Calvino, Malerba, Castellaneta, Del Buono, Garboli, Eco, Sermonti, Spaziani, Bene, Camilleri, ma anche voci stradinarie, come quelle di Bonacelli, Scaccia, Poli, Gastoni, Caprioli, Fabbri, Pagni, Betti, Santuccio, Falk.
    Ho cercato il testo in inglese, i sottotitoli, niente! Troppo faticoso da tradurre, lascio il link a chi putroppo potrà giovarsene.
    Le interviste sono ottantadue, quasi tutte perfette, indimenticabili. Fra queste trovo utili al tema dei Gemelli quella fatta a Marco Aurelio, il cui finale è una piccola perla metafisica.

    Ecco i link dell’intervista, divisa in tre parti
