The new series published by Olschki and curated by the Association Amici di Leonardo Sciascia, is a collection of research, correspondence, and musings on the literary production of the Italian writer, that weaves together on paper the love of memories and the memories of love found in his work. The logo was designed by Edo Janich, Sciascia’s favorite engraver.
“In Sanskrit smara means both love and memory. You love someone because you remember that person, and conversely, you remember because you love. By loving we remember, and by remembering we love, and ultimately, we love the memory – love itself – and we remember love – the memory itself. Thus, loving means being unable to forget, being unable to get a face, a gesture, a light out of our mind. But in fact, it also means that we cannot hold onto that memory, that love lives beyond the memory, unforgettable, incessantly present.” (Giorgio Agamben, Autoritratto nello studio).
