58 "our home" personalities from the worlds of politics, work, sport, entertainment, etc. responded to the invitation to write their grandmother's memories. With this initiative we wanted to give voice to grandmothers, ordinary women who do not appear on the lists of famous women, but as anonymous protagonists have left their marks in the furrows of history.
That's the "Effetto Nonna!" ("Granny Effect! )"
58 stories, smiles and memories, and food for thought, a return to the past, for some not without a little of nostalgia...
The book "Effetto Nonna," written in collaboration with Unitas, sold-out in a short time, but is now reborn in the form of an audio-book, for those who have difficulties with sight, the elderly, and all those who never find time to read.
From the written word to the voice that can convey deep emotions because… "to relive with pleasure the past is to live it twice."
The initiative also has a supportive effect: the proceeds from the sale of the book will go partly to Unitas and partly to support educational programmes for children.
The audiobook is offered with two supports: CD-ROM and USB key inserted in a pen, so as to meet different needs (Fr 25 / 23 Euro, plus shipping costs). The USB key of 8 GB can be used to upload other personal data.
You can also have the two things separately (Fr 15 / 14 Euro, plus shipping costs).
Available in bookshops, or order it from our secretariat using the contact form below.
(the paper version of "Effetto Nonna" can also be found on the shelves of the Cantonal Library in Bellinzona)
