Author: Lorenza Formicola

Lorenza Formicola was born in the year that Poland took the words "communism" and "socialism" out of its constitution. She has always been a writer, but not with the purpose of persuading, because that would lead her to cowardice and dishonesty. Journalism has taught her that it is not possible to stir up emotion with mere emotion, ideas with mere ideas, hope with mere hope. Rather, for all of these to exist it is necessary to provide actual meaning, weight, and tangibility, otherwise they evaporate. She is firmly convinced that "tolerance means indifference" (Domenico Giuliotti).
