I want to dedicate my posts to what I define “Viral Storytelling” – I wish to talk about narrative, its inherent characteristics and what makes it work and thrive.

The first thing I can say about myself is that I have been in love with storytelling since I was a small child.

Julia Dream is a sci-fi novel set in a dystopian future.

Professionally I like to think of myself as a gardener – I work with seeds of ideas so that they can grow and bloom.

What’s so special about Pasta alla Carbonara? First, the taste. Then, its story.

The outrageous biopic of a talented (albeit criminal) broker. I will focus on the portrayal that is given of Jordan Belfort’s tactics in action.

You can’t talk about music in the late 1900s without including Cage. Praise him or consider him a fraud, Cage is present.

I literally grew up watching Star Wars. Time and again. I couldn’t understand at the time what was so special, so captivating…

There is a narrative behind the process that led to Apple becoming an icon, an idea which became viral (slowly at first, then exponentially) because of its visionary strength.

Art prevails, because its ambiguity enables politically correct interpretations. Let’s consider the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa by Bernini.

Denis Diderot began working on his Encyclopédie in 1750; a proud rationalist, he dedicated most of his life to this visionary project.

I started visiting Middle Earth as a child, and haven’t stopped ever since. I first caught a glimpse of its shining towers and dark, dark pits thanks to my mother’s description..

We can’t expect to have specific understanding of storytelling without knowing how communication works.
