Vecchie pagine, vecchi ricordi / Old pages, old memories



IT: Oggi, al mio risveglio, ho ripreso a sfogliare un libro che avevo letto tante volte e diversi anni fa. Charles Baudelaire è uno dei miei poeti preferiti e lo rileggo con piacere da quando ero adolescente. L'ultima volta che ho preso in mano "I fiori del male" ero in un momento molto bello e sereno della mia vita e rileggere le sue poesie cariche di emozioni, immagini, suoni, mi ha fatto rivivere e ricordare con gioia estatica quei momenti. I bei libri e le belle poesie sono come il vino buono, come le serate tranquille passate vicino ad un caminetto scoppiettante, come il sapore di un frutto esotico assaporato per la prima volta o il suono di un raro istrumento, perché rimangono impresse nella memoria per sempre e ogni volta che ritornano in mente, lo fanno con più vigore, con più intensità come se volessero restarci per sempre. 

ENG: Today, when I woke up, I resumed leafing through a book that I had read many times and several years ago. Charles Baudelaire is one of my favorite poets and I have enjoyed reading him since I was a teenager. The last time I picked up "The flowers of evil" I was in a very beautiful and peaceful moment of my life and rereading his poems full of emotions, images, sounds, made me relive and remember those moments with ecstatic joy. Beautiful books and beautiful poems are like good wine, like quiet evenings spent near a crackling fireplace, like the taste of an exotic fruit savoured for the first time or the sound of a rare instrument, because they remain engraved in the memory forever and every time they come back to mind, they do it with more vigor, with more intensity as if they wanted to stay there forever.





IT: Anche a voi piace rileggere certi libri? Cosa provate quando riprendete a sfogliare vecchie pagine? Leggendo di nuovo quelle parole, rivivete anche i momenti quando li avete letti la prima volta?

ENG: Do you also like to reread certain books? How do you feel when you resume turning over old pages? By reading those words again, do you also relive the moments when you first read them?

  8. Beautiful post dear. Love to read in general, but older books have a cartain smell and feel, like you can travel back in time while you read them. xoxo
