Il titolo accosta due determine che riassumono bene los angeles personalità dell’autore, pur nella loro contrapposizione: l’una ostinatamente determinata nella ricerca di un’assoluta verità, come Giulio fu nel lavoro di giornalista, pronto a sfidare qualsiasi tentativo di occultamento; l’altra imprevedibilmente disponibile a perdersi lungo le strade suggerite da una curiosità mai appagata, perennemente senza meta nel suo perenne vagabondaggio. E ancora: da una parte uno scrittore limpidamente analitico, che ricostruisce fedelmente le suggestioni della memoria giudicandole con rigorosa e razionale moralità; dall'altra un fotografo, che letteralmente rapisce con uno scatto l’istante altrimenti perduto, e poi riconosce sulla pellicola quello che a chiunque nell'esperienza sarebbe sfuggito; o ancora: in line with un verso il professionista puntuale e severo e in line with l’altro l’eterno stupefatto fanciullo, che rinnova l’emozione di un gioco che coincide perfettamente con lo studio, l’amore e los angeles conoscenza. Questo libro pazientemente accosta i due estremi di una personalità che ha percorso gli anni di una vita operosa nella certezza che ogni medaglia ha due facce e, quindi, anche los angeles sua, ma che, in line with quanto possano apparire opposte, esse invece si integrano e si completano, arricchendosi mutualmente. C’è l’impegno militante di chi in keeping with un decennio ha inseguito le tracce di un terrorismo, nel quale i propositi eversivi si trasformavano in mostruose stampelle al sistema; c’è l’orgoglio consistent with l. a. tradizione di una famiglia che aveva inventato il quotidiano dei veneziani e l’amore in keeping with i genitori che sopportarono senza piegarsi le violenze fasciste e gli incerti della fortuna, mentre, intanto, seppero educarlo alla responsabilità e alla rettitudine; c’è l’amore according to Venezia e los angeles sua laguna, l. a. sua luce, le sue vedute, l. a. sua storia: in queste pagine felicemente sopravvissute alla dispersione di una scrittura esercitata soprattutto come mestiere si riconosce l. a. figura e los angeles forza di un uomo che ha vissuto ogni giorno con fervida e accesa passione, lasciandone testimonianza con l’intelligenza e l’equilibrio dell’arte.
