Today is my father s birthday, he would have been 97.



He was an engineer, my mother was a paediatrician. I was the black sheep of the family studying art, music, literature, philosophy. But Today with this very dangerous new wave of aggressive anti scientific moods, theories, movements, I want to express my deep credo in science, technology, ratio. If i had two lives i would have studied nuclear physics, maybe i still will…

 I have chills in this corona emergency because of the  the no-vaxx, antiscientific, anti rational, denialists leading to new dark times, totalitarian obscurantism, nationalism …and Hypatia comes to my mind…I was supposed to write a novel on her many years ago but then the wars in the Balkans shifted my attention to more urgent matters in my courtyard. And i wrote the Diary of the Political Idiot. But today  the global world has become my new emergency to write about. Let me remind you who was Hypatia


As a scientist a mathematician an independent pagan woman  she  mass murdered by the  fanatics , her body torn to pieces in public…before that The Alexandria library was burned to the ground…

I will write the first paragraph today of my new book…
