"It's hard for me to say whether Zen and the art and rebellion, on board of a sidecar in the fantastic story of Ariadne is more an exhibition of the art of rebellion or the story of Ariadne's history. In this book I wanted to put interior formation, wonder and fun together.
The book - which is built with bricks of fiction, psychology and philosophy - recounts an adventure of rebellion against the rulers, who are the rules, the laws, the rules we have introjected and make us measurable, predictable, manageable.
We all go through a powerful unconscious programming - that the call education - which, however, can never domarci to the end. A spark of the early freedom is always on in us and, arrived at a certain point, we can grow it to find ourselves and reawaken from a hypnotic sleep.
The book tells the story of the discovery of the inner fire, his release and finally the affirmation of freedom from conditioning. This rebellion and liberation is the birth of a new man and a new world.
"What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not a purpose: what you can love in man is that he is a transition and a fall," said the unforgettable Nietzsche's Zarathustra. So the characters in this book "fall" all the time to give way to other characters.
Arianna, the protagonist, is the character more than any other person in this transmutation...
The book is at the service of all those who want change... "
