Book presentation in Italian

Enzo Restagno is a great connoisseur of Debussy's scores and a keen reader of his correspondence. In this biography, he speaks about the composer‚Äôs family, friends and loves, about recognition and misunderstandings, about economic difficulties and a thirst for knowledge. But above all he talks about the composer‚Äôs works, and his belief that music should not be ‚Äúconfined to reproducing Nature more or less exactly, but rather to producing the mysterious correspondences which link Nature with Imagination‚ÄĚ. Debussy‚Äôs life and music also bear witness to a golden age, and to Paris at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, when it was at the crossroads of all the arts.
