On Friday 5 May, at 7 p.m., Oscar Farinetti, founder of Eataly and president of Eataly Art House, will talk to Mauro Corona (Baselga di Piné, Trento, 1950), an Italian writer, columnist, mountaineer and wood sculptor.
A thinker outside of all dogma, deeply critical of contemporary cultural models, ever since he was a child, Mauro Corona has cultivated a passion for mountains and mountaineering, combined with a passion for reading, in the company of great authors such as Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and Cervantes, his favourite writers. The interpenetration with the elements of the landscape induces him to experiment with distinct ways of contact and manipulation. Thus, in parallel with mountaineering (an excellent climber, Corona has opened over 230 new itineraries in the Oltrepiave Dolomites), he has developed singular skills in wood carving, in which he prefers to sculpt bodies. His career as a writer began in 1997, when a journalist friend published some of his stories in the newspaper Il Gazzettino.
