Insights

Almost all the thoughts collected in this edition are extracted from five works published between 1930 and 1934, with the common subtitle of “diary pages”: Scheggie, Impronte, Cicute, Sguardi, Scolii. Two thoughts are instead taken from the columns of the newspaper “Il lavoro”, which published them in 1938. This is the eighth title of the series “The cards of the sky”.
