‘INERMI’ (2017) is the latest volume of a trilogy written by Gianfranco Longo. INERMI (defenseless) which is written as narrative poetry, is a contemplation about the refugees in Europe, especially in Italy. The second volume is called ‘EMPIREO' which is about the creation of the world according to the Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Vedic tradition. The first volume is called ‘POETICA' and is a love poem.
Longo was inspired by many composers. I feel very honored that my work was also source of inspiration amongst others, in his books INERMI and EMPIREO.
