Les invasions barbares - The Barbarian Invasions - Le invasioni barbariche

Watch Gloria in tv at Le Invasioni Barbariche

On Friday night, November 7th, I was at the Italian tv to present my first "literary" book, La figlia della gallina nera a sort of memoir of my childhood through the words of my family in Milano, Italy.

The discussion was quite tough, at least from my side. I was facing a very well known in Italy and totally unknown abroad Italian psychoanalyst. Well, my roughness was due to inexperience! Once you have dedicated half of your life defending yourself from the linguistic attacks of the most brainy and almost totally male community in the Academy - analytical philosophers - an Italian psychoanalyst is a light "aperitivo" easy to swallow in less than 10 seconds.
