Mirio Cosottini dedicates his book "Playing with silence" to everyone who loves silence and its multiple facets. In this volume, he advances a series of questions and exercises through which to set off on a path of enquiry into silence, shedding light on its multiple appearances and, at the same time, on what remains constant despite various transformations. In the first part of this work, Cosottini proposes a series of questions that invite readers to confront themselves with a silence that frightens. This silence is to be found in our bodies, enters our experience, and hides itself in the world. It can be cultivated, desired and listened to. In the second part, readers are invited to "play" with silence, turning it into a performative exercise: silence, here, is conceived as a tool for action and the fulfilment of a direct experience of silence.
