About meBorn in 1961, I am a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist with an great interest in history. I like reading novels that represent an encounter with the personal history of an individual. And I like reading books that bring me closer to the history of mankind.

La storia ci insegna che non c'è fine all'orrore
La vita ci insegna che vale solo l'amore

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.
Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.
(Groucho Marx)

About my libraryItaly, the middle ages and the 19th century have my special interest. Furthermore I try to collect novels written by authors with an alcoholproblem or who write about alcoholism. So, if you have a suggestion to make, please leave a comment.
