An intimate conversation with Fabio Pusterla, Swiss poet and teacher from Ticino, in which we pay a discreet visit to his private, creative space. We follow him in his daily chores, meeting his readers, his students, his special place at a mountain that embraces him with a deep sigh. We share in his fatigue as he struggles with the demon all artists know: the loss of creativity. Restless, he seeks inspiration in his surroundings, his past, his notebooks, the words of Philippe Jaccottet, his old friend and mentor, on the need to live in the balance between poetry and mundane life. An essential ethical condition for poetry to be meaningful, honest, felt, and able to reach out to others.
