A Playful Aperitivo:
Words Waiting for You.

Book Tasting takes the scent of books as an excuse for an ever-changing literary journey, where the books choose the reader.*

SUMMER ONLY – Old books. Freshly printed ones. Essays, paperbacks, hardcovers. Each book has its own unmistakable smell, like a fingerprint.

Take a seat in the Focolare, the heart of the Masseria, theater, library and fireplace. Immerse yourself in an olfactory-literary journey that is never the same, with a glass of wine and a homemade cake. And Nicola, the poetic soul of the Masseria.

“Perfume has a more convincing power of persuasion than words, appearances, feelings and wills.”

(Patrik Süskind, The Perfume)
