Itinerant performance by Chiara Trevisan of micro readings and conversations for one listener at the time. One bicycle, two seats, one cart full of books, three ideal itineraries that include some of the books of the Giralibro di San Salvario. For one listener at the time, original catalogs are available from which one of the pages selected by the Reader can be chosen.
Words, emotions, fragments of text for a singular taste, in every sense.
Thanks to journeytoixtlan for the translation!

I just can’t help myself.
I read to learn and to grow, to laugh
and to be motivated.
I read to understand things I’ve never
been exposed to.
I read when I’m crabby, when I’ve just
said monumentally dumb things to the
people I love.
I read for strength to help me when I
feel broken, discouraged, and afraid.
I read when I’m angry at the whole
I read when everything is going right.
I read to find hope.
I read because I’m made up not just of
skin and bones, of sights, feelings,
and a deep need for chocolate, but I’m
also made up of words.
Words describe my thoughts and what’s
hidden in my heart.
Words are alive—when I’ve found a
story that I love, I read it again and
again, like playing a favorite song
over and over.
Reading isn’t passive—I enter the
story with the characters, breathe
their air, feel their frustrations,
scream at them to stop when they’re
about to do something stupid, cry with
them, laugh with them.
