In the wake of tenderness

Laura Canali


A mysterious lady and a map of feelings. That is what’s left of a book published in Paris between 1654 and 1660. By travelling through this geography of the heart we can draw our personal one, able to enrich the original with other sentiments, maybe less romantic but utterly inescapable. Modernity and necessity of Grand esprit.
