Tuesday, December 3 at 4:30 pm at the Concert Hall of the Institute of the Blind "Istituto Florio – Salamone", via Angiò, 27 – Palermo, there will be a presentation of the book by Tommaso Di Gesaro Colori nella penombra, published by Spazio Cultura Edizioni in new Spazio Narrativa – VOX series with audio-book attachment.

Di Gesaro writes a touching and compelling autobiography, starting from his childhood in Isnello marked by his blindness that arrived too soon, but not so early that he did not know the colors and lights of the world. A blindness that has not prevented the author from coming into contact with the world of work, love and the Christian faith, despite the difficulties and impediments that lack of sight often brings.

The meeting will see the participation not only of the author, but also of many personalities of the Palermo cultural environment, and not only, who have collaborated in the realization of the book and its audio version. Besides the intervention of the publisher and bookseller, Nicola Macaione, and of the editorial director of the Spazio Narrativa series, Biagio Balistreri, the meeting will be enriched by the contribution of Laura Ephrikian, who lent her voice to the audio recording book and for the occasion it will read some passages, and from the live musical accompaniment of Salvo Capizzi, musician and author of the musical commentary of the audio-book. The meeting will be moderated by journalist Anna Cane.
