For twenty years collaborator of the Accademia della Crusca, today she is a reference point for investigating new points of view on communication and its tools, the relative changes also linked to the cultural sphere of the times in the making. In this new work he analyzes the mechanisms of our wonderful language, and he does it with the lightness of someone who admires language and knows its weight. In these pages he distills a "method" to remind us of the responsibility that each of us has as a speaker, which is based above all on doubts, useful before expressing ourselves, on reflection, every time we formulate a concept, and finally on silence, because sometimes it can also happen, after having doubted and meditated, that one wisely decides not to have anything to say.

Vera Gheno is a sociolinguist specialized in digital communication and a translator from Hungarian, she collaborated for twenty years with the Accademia della Crusca. He teaches at the University of Florence, where for many years he has held the Written Italian Laboratory for Humanities for Communication, and in courses and masters of various Italian universities. She is the author of books and scientific and popular articles.

The exhibition is organized with the support of the Municipality of Florence as part of the Florentine Summer . All events are free admission with reservation (on or by email to ).
