Yesterday I came back from Italy, where I presented Neurocomic at the Settimana del Cervello and gave a lecture at the Master in Communicazione della Scienza. Thanks to all the people who came by, and especially to the students, who were very welcoming and have great projects of their own! Other things happened but I’ll give more details about this in due time… Today – just to linger on the Italian theme – I want to remember 6 Gradi Di Separazione, my first book ever published, back in March 2013 by Bel-Ami Edizioni. These days I rarely have time to think about this early experiment of mine but at least once a year I want to pay my tribute. So, to mark the 2nd anniversary of the publication, here is a little painting inspired by a real advertisement I saw on the tube a while ago and – like many things in that book – can assume a bitter double meaning if you have been in a long-distance relationship.
