I wish you dreams to no end
the irrepressible desire to realize some of them
I wish you to love what you have to love
and forget what should we forget
I wish you passions
I wish you silences
I wish you the song of birds upon awakening
and laughter of children
I hope you will resist sinking,
to indifference, to the negative virtues of our time.
I wish you above all be yourselves.
My name is Maria Amata Di Lorenzo. I am Italian, from Rome. I have written books that have been distributed to date in nine languages and creative texts for radio, film and theater. I have worked for over twenty years as a journalist and as an author and editorial consultant, and have led creative writing courses.
I love to create stories that I like to tell in words and pictures. Have you read any of my works? I call them “the works of my heart” because they are books that are born from my soul.
Two of my books will soon be published in English: Teresa of Calcutta – The Novel of a Soul; Rosario Livatino – Justice Requires Love. This book tells the story of Judge Rosario Livatino, killed by the Mafia in Sicily in 1990, and will be published in English, French, and Spanish, as well as in Italian.
In order to give your soul spaces for reflection and beauty, I opened my site, Amata for you, and my blog: “The place of sensitive souls“. I opened this place on the web to build bridges of friendship. In Italian, you can read my blog here: www.mariaamata.it
