Men on men Vol.3 (Mondadori)
"A Family" is my debut short story. I wrote it with two ideas in mind: firstly, to make the reader smile and secondly, to launch a "political" message: the world in which we live isn't the best possible world. There is more, there are others and there is better. I tried to look at the gay world from a straight point of view, talking about problems that are common to millions of couples (not so much adoption, but surely follow-up formula and sending your child to preschool). I tried not to use a comforting tone or to "stay on the safe side", explicitly and implicitly introducing alien concepts to the Roman or Italian queens. I have ironically tried to take the hinges off of some of the clichï¿½s of that world, and I have tried to use universal categories to tell special characteristics. It's up to you to judge the result...
Troppo giovani per vivere
"Troppo giovani per vivere (Too Young to Live)" is my first - and until now only - text for the theater. It is a tragic comedy, in one act, that narrates the happenings in the lives of four twenty-year olds who disembarked in the great Roman province. They meet each other by chance and share a small apartment, while the city does all that it can to intimidate them.
Fino a qui tutto bene
"Fino a qui tutto bene (Everything's Fine up Until Here)" is a crazy collection of proetry, that is a way in between prose and the small poetry for me. I have never wanted to try and publish it and I don't think that I ever will, at least as long as I conserve an ounce of decency. The collection covers the years 1989 to 2000.
