To be frank, I opened this weblog mainly to try out blogging. The reason for doing that now (October 2009) is that the Interactive Fiction competition 2009 has begun, and this seems to be a convenient way to post reviews of games and discuss them.
After a possible period of initial enthusiasm, my posts will probably be few and far between. I intend to write about interactive fiction now, later maybe about books, films, philosophy.
About the blog’s title:
“Amara terra mia / amara e bella” means “my bitter earth / bitter and beautiful”. It’s from an Italian song by Domenico Modugno.
